Rated Random: Eric Anthony

1990 Donruss #34 Eric Anthony Front
Got two first names? This guy does.

Why we like him: Eric Anthony was supposed to be really good. He was a fairly hyped Astros prospect for most of the late '80s and early '90s, but as it turned out, the guy just couldn't hit. He was a fairly competent defensive outfielder, but he never got anything going at the plate. He had his best season in Cincinnati when he batted .269 in 134 at-bats. He was even purchased by the Rockies in1996, and that didn't even improve things. In the end, Eric Anthony was just an athlete with a little upside, a career .231 hitter, and a guy with two first names.

Ladies and gentlemen, Eric Anthony, ballplayer.
