Dime Box Buy: 1994 Action Packed #14 Phil Nevin

It appeared for awhile that Phil Nevin would go down as another overall #1 pick bust, but he ultimately had a 12-year career.  His power numbers started to soar in 1999 (*wink* *wink*) and in 2001 he bashed 41 homers for the Padres.  

I took a look at his wikipedia page and found this interesting:

"The Houston Astros chose Nevin with the first overall pick in the 1992 Major League Baseball draft.  Hal Newhouser, a scout for the Astros, had evaluated Derek Jeter extensively prior to the draft. Convinced that Jeter would anchor a winning team, Newhouser lobbied team management to select Jeter, and quit in protest over the Astros' decision to take Nevin instead."
