Like Michael Meyers and Friday the 13th's Jason the Cub career of one Koyie Hill just never seems to end. Koyie is one bad player, so bad that even us old-timers who have seen many a bad Cub, will remember Koyie.

The Cubs have treated Koyie quite well, better than even some of their own draft picks. Koyie was actually a 4th round draft pick of the Dodgers in 2000. So I decided to do a little digging, look at guys drafted after Koyie in 2000...it's quite surprising:

CURRENT STARS/ALL-STAR TYPES/VERY GOOD

James Shields. Mike Napoli, Ian Kinsler, Michael Bourn, Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, Corey Hart, Brian Wilson, Russell Martin, Adam LaRoche

SOLID MLB GUYS/ HAD DECENT CAREERS

Jason Bay, Nate McClouth, Jason Kubel, Josh Willingham, Booby Jenks, Clint Barmes, Rich Harden, Garrett Atkins, Dontrelle Willis,


this is not to endict the Dodgers on a poor draft, these type of picks happen to all teams...its just another cautionary tale on how the amateur draft can be a total crap shoot...

Maybe we will have a Hill vs. Berryhill faceoff.
