Another guy who wasn't worth the power he brought to the table was Jim Presley. In fact, I suspect we could blow this thread well past 10,000 posts if we concentrated on members of the 70s and 80s Mariners teams.
All of those expansion teams of the 60's and 70's had numerous horrible players. Choo Choo Coleman of the 62 Mets is one that comes to mind. In fact, almost everyone on that 62 Mets team could make this thread with the exception of Richie Ashburn and a couple of others.
