Both have long careers but one was a starter and the other was a relief pitcher.
Ken Hill has an All Star call but none the same Dennis Cook wins because of the WS title.

To consider them as true prospects makes me think a bit.
I just have some doubts because they have so many teams. I always think that if you are good the team you are in tries everything to keep you. If you are traded a lot I always think there is some problem...

  1. I'd say they were prospects but didn't turn out to have real great careers. I tend to think any pitcher who pitches as long as these guys and has a winning record, should be given some slack.
