    I don't think that you have to be complete dog**** to be considered a "bust." If your hype puts you at X level, and you perform at Y level, and the difference between X and Y is HUGE, you're a bust.

    If Drew would have just gotten drafted and had that career, I'd agree that it was just fine.

    But when you present yourself as the greatest of all time, you have do better than mediocre. Drew had more [self-imposed] hype on him than anyone in recent memory, true. He didn't come anywhere near fulfilling the hype. Going from GOAT to one single All-Star Game appearance, in my opinion, is a bust.

    Man, when JD Drew was coming up through the Cardinals system I literally heard people saying he was going gone the next Mickey Mantle.

    He was a complete bust, and his own worst enemy. Him and Colby Rasmus should never procreate.

    These are facts. He had the potential to be so much more
