Matt Bush was picked before Verlander (#1 overall) in 2004 and he is looking like a complete bust at this point. Jeff Clement was picked immediately after Gordon (#3 overall) in 2005 and he hasn't been able to hit his way out of a wet paper bag since leaving single-A.
I repeat, there is no such thing as a sure thing.
Bush was in no way, shape or form a sure thing. His #1 selection has a lot to do with money.
