How about 'failed cannot miss';e.g. David Clyde, Cesar Cedeno and ilk. Or guys who were dead certain HOF at one point, then were not;e.g. Mattingly.

Or 'the next...' - Cedeno=Mays, Murcer=Mantle
Apparently they felt he accidently fell asleep drunk in the car with the engine running. Definitely tragic.

As for can't misses, Cedeno was definitely in that class. I'll never forget being the hero of my friends for getting his autograph when the Astros visited Dodger Stadium. He was a sure HOF'er...well, until he kill that hooker. LOL
