Bubba Was A Bust

Fanboys agree that the hometown hero never lived up to his potential — Which is true of most people but provides an exceptionally fun aspect of criticism for ball players wherein stats can quantify their career FAIL. 

Meanwhile, TKC readers hope the slugger can find his groove with another team like so many other Royals have done over the years.

Kansas City Royals: Bubba Starling non-tender cements bust status

I like Bubba Starling. I'd have liked him even more had he honored his commitment to the University of Nebraska when they gave him a football scholarship to play quarterback for the Big Red. After being drafted fifth overall in the first round of the 2011 draft, and being offered a $7.5M signing bonus, Starling signed with the Kansas City Royals.

His signing bonus guarantees him a better life than Tony's bottom dwelling commenters including me.

Bubba made it to the majors. That puts him ahead of most everybody else.

The blue scarf around the neck doomed Bubba's batting swing.

10:29 and yet he failed and I have not so no that doesn't put him ahead of me at all. Paid millions to be a loser, wow such a racket.

^^And yet you're here which means you have failed, and failed often. You're paid nothing to be a loser. See how that works simp? Now get your shinebox, you just got knocked the fuck out! Weird.

@ 1158 - But you're a better loser because you have no skills and never accomplished anything. At least Bubba can say he was a professional athlete, meaning got paid. He may still have opportunities elsewhere.
