Where are they now - Richard Lewis

Wow, talk about a harsh re-cap of a guy's minor league career - this time former Jacket Richard Lewis:

Then, suddenly, dramatically, with the 40th pick of the draft, the Braves took a college player, Georgia Tech second baseman Richard Lewis. I think it was their first first round pick of a college player since Mike Kelly in 1991. Unfortunately, he sucked for the Braves (just like Kelly!) and was shipped off in the Juan Cruz deal. He was pretty great for the Cubs in AA last year but has gone back to being terrible in AAA.
