I remember when we non-tendered him.  People were on the message board raising **** about cheapskate owners, why we didn't trade him last deadline and how he might still be a usable piece.

Obviously time proved the front office right.

No images of Van Poppel.  But there are mental scars.

Myself and two friends of mine saw Van Poppel pitch with the Huntsville Stars way back in the day. He was supposed to be a big deal in the making back then.

Oh, yeah, he was going to be big time.  I think Baseball Weekly had him on every other cover one season as a future multi Cy Young winner.
