40-40 would have been pretty nice to have from a fantasy standpoint. I remember getting his rookie card for my birthday as a kid and being thrilled.

I would imagine Larry Walker's Coors days would have made for some ungodly fantasy numbers and first overall pick material. Take 1997 for instance, his career year...

.366 average
143 runs scored
49 home runs
130 runs batted in
33 stolen bases
1.172 OPS
