spring, 2002, bobby hill was a hot prospect. he had a shot at the starting 2b job. the trib did a feature on him. he got sent down.
spring, 2003, bobby hill was a hot prospect. he competed with mark grudzielanek for the starting job. he got sent down.
was he over-hyped or unlucky?
a little of both. but he sure as hell beats grudzielanek:

hill has a better eye and better power. plus he's 25, and will improve.

that was last year. the year he was a bust. but he was almost as good as cruddy-lanek, and he was 24. he's better than that now. the cubs can't see it.
he'll be above major-league average starting next year, followed by a nice peak, then a slide into obscurity. oh wait, it's the cubs. they'll sign him to a giant multi-year contract.
