The JOBC Contest

Five years ago today the Cubs acquired a former all-star slugger and one-time #1 overall pick in the draft. He hit 12 homers for the Cubs that year, but was out of baseball before the next season began.

Name him.

The first person that e-mails me the correct answer at rick@justonebadcentury.com will win a commemorative Greg Maddux 3000th strikeout scorecard, an autographed copy of the excellent baseball novel "The Pitch" (by Hank Owens), plus a t-shirt from the Just One Bad Century catalog.

UPDATE: We have a winner! Congrats to Yuji Fukunaga. He was the first one to e-mail me the answer to this week's JOBC contest question. He knew that Phil Nevin was the player the Cubs acquired on this day in 2006. If you didn't win, check back next Monday. We'll have another JOBC prize package.
