With all the big busts out there Mike Hampton ranks fairly high on the list. Hampton signed an 8 year $121million contract after the 2000 season and well most fantasy owners from that time know how poorly that panned out.

It seems things are coming full circle. Hampton is reported to have signed a 1 year contract with the Astros for $2million and with bonuses reaching another $2million.

Yes, this isn't much help for fantasy owners and doesn't really rank high on fantasy news but come on, it's the offseason and there isn't much going on. Hampton does not deserve a spot on rosters next year unless you are in a super deep deep league.

I hope free agents start signing with teams so I have some news to talk about.

Fairly high? I think this guy would top any bust list.

eyebleaf - The Rockies and Braves surely aren't laughing. :)

25th Hour - He had strong numbers in 03 and 04 but dam, $121million. That's a lot of money to be paying for this guy. But again, taking a look at his numbers from 1996 to 2000, I can see what the Rockies thought they were going to get.

But what a bust he was.
