Like fellow free-agent bomb Mike Hampton, Neagle was lost in Colorado. He had a 5.57 ERA through the first three years of this deal before surgery knocked him out of the '04 season completely. The Rocks cut him when he was caught, zipper-down, with a $40 prostitute. And they still had to pay millions on the rest of his contract.
