The Zephyrs will take Dwight Gooden, P, Mets/Yankees/Indians.

Dr. K was a sensation in the 1980's and had one of the greatest pitching seasons of all-time in 1985 (at 20 freaking years old). He had a high-'90's fastball and an intimidating curveball that opposing players called "Lord Charles".

Gooden was mediocre after 1991 due to arm and personal problems. He did have one moment of glory in 1996 with the Yankees, throwing an improbable 135 pitch no-hitter against the Mariners.

It's hard to find an athlete that squandered more talent than Doc Gooden. He's currently serving a jail sentence for probation violation. It's easy to forget how dominating he was back in the day.
