Anyone wondering whatever happened to 2002 first rounder Chris Gruler – the guy Johnny Bench claimed had better stuff than Tom Seaver?

I thought of him today when I saw that 2002 overall #1 (Gruler was #3) Bryan Bullington had a career game yesterday for KC. That was an awful draft all-around, though Zack Greinke and Matt Cain were high school pitchers taken after Gruler.

Gruler’s now finishing up a degree at Arizona State, vlogging (behind the wheel!), and is an entrepreneur with several irons in the fire. Here’s one: Introduction from on Vimeo.

He even has his own logo, and his company can design one for you:

Best of luck to him, and hopefully his $2.5M signing bonus is still in the bank, too.
