I’ve covered Stull as a failed prospect before, so I just wanted to show his auto here.

1995 Bowman #203
Bio/Summary: You know, sometimes you can look at a prospect’s history and say, “yeah, no wonder they valued him so much”. Then there are times you look back and are absolutely baffled as to what the team saw in a guy. You can probably guess that Stull is the latter. Okay, he was serviceable at times, but for God’s sake he started his career in short season A with a 1.794 WHIP and a 5.43 ERA. Oh and did I mention 61 walks to 64 strikeous? I don’t see what the deal was. And he didn’t really get much better. 1996 in Harrisburg was probably the short window for when I would have considered him a prospect – 6-3 with a 3.15 (though the K/BB ratio was still bad). Let’s not forget he was a 24-year old in AA at that point! I don’t get it at all, and he didn’t either – he had an absolutely miserable career 67 ERA+ in four short ML seasons.
How Did I Get It?: Bought it off of eBay in 2003.
Did You Know?: Stull was selected in the third round of the 1992 draft – ahead of Craig Counsell, Doug Mirabelli, and Brad Clontz – not exactly elite company.
Rating: 2/10 – The Bowman sweaty shot returns! Only this time shot from the ground. And let’s not mention what a hot mess the 1995 Bowman design was – look at those borders. Yikes.
