How about Amos Otis (who was a good OF with the KC Royals in their heyday)? Just kidding. I think he predates that 2003 date by a few years. lol
Amos Otis signed with and played in the minors for the Red Sox but then a year later was drafted by the Mets I’m some sort of minor league draft.
Ah, thanks for the correction. I thought he was a draft but no sign guy. Apparently he had nice minor league numbers for his first two seasons in the Sox organization but for some reason the Sox let him be drafted away by the Mets who foolishly dealt him after the 1969 miracle season to the Royals for a washed up Joe Foy. Otis had a pretty nice career. Good speed CF who could walk and hit for average on occasion with a little bit of pop. Not better than Rice/Lynn/Evans but between Otis, Beniquez, and Oglivie the Sox had a pretty good B squad for the OF and that doesn't even include Rick Miller.

Reminder: 2019 MLB draft thread.
"We really don't need the whole commercial break/warm-up routine every time a new reliever comes into the game. It certainly made sense in 1884 when they only switched pitchers when the starter was attacked by pickaxe or caught consumption, and no reliever was warming up because he was busy gambling and drinking." - JD
