Scott Pose stuck in my mind because he was one of the original players drafted by the then Florida Marlins during the 1992 Expansion Draft. Even though the majority of the time he spent in the majors came with the Kansas City Royals, those two seasons were utterly forgettable.

After receiving 139 plate appearances in parts of two seasons, Pose received 160 plate appearances with the 1999 Royals, further underscoring the lack of talent that some of those teams had back then. Pose actually posted a respectable .285 batting average and a .377 on base percentage, but his lack of anything resembling power came through with his three extra base hits, all of which were doubles.
Overall during his time with the Royals, Pose produced a .259/.352/.276 batting line, good enough for a .016 ISO. Those numbers actually could have been worse, as Pose had a .318 batting average on balls in play. Pose was also mediocre defensively, costing the Royals five runs in his limited time in the outfield.
Pose will go down in history as the first batter ever for the Marlins, reaching on an error by Jody Reed, but that was the extent of his career accomplishments.
Now, on to the All-Time Worst 25 man roster, beginning with the bench.
