Baseball busts and disappointments - No. 14 Corey Patterson

Corey Patterson was supposed to be a poor man's Barry Bonds coming through the minors, though Patterson's No. 1 problem - was not being able to sustain the ability to get on-base when he wasn't getting hits left and right.

A bust of a top prospect, his journeyman career may not be unique - but he has been productive in small spurts [even with a .293 lifetime on-base percentage] and shown flashes of the talent that at least keeps earning him a MLB paycheck.
