Fox Sports Live reflects on the story of Matt Bush

When you hear about the biggest MLB Draft busts of all-time, the name Matt Bush is always one of the first names to come up. Ten years ago, the Padres drafted Bush first overall, ahead of now-established MLB stars like Justin Verlander, Stephen Drew, Jered Weaver, and Billy Butler, among others. Today, Bush is in a Florida jail. No one is saying that you need to feel sorry for Bush and the numerous mistakes he’s made in his career, but his story is a perfect example of what can happen when life starts to spiral out of control quickly.
