I recall once hearing "Have you ever seen a hotdog that couldn't play?"
Well, do you believe this?

How about Rey Ordonez? :D
Or is he not enough of a hot dog?

Good point on Rey-Rey. Maybe it's just pre-1994 hot dogs?
Rajah - it's about guys that cut the pie, and rub people by doing it - like Willie Montanez. While they are flashy, most times that can play well too.
See: Rickey Henderson.
You never see a guy like Jim Presley doing a snatch-catch or a wild HR trot.

What about Jeffrey 'one flap down' Leonard? What a nice career he carved out for himself.

Leonard COULD play. Just didn't stay at a high level for long. He had a nice OPS+ in 1981, 1983, 1984 and decent years elsewhere.
Tito Fuentes had only one year of an OPS+ of 100. Good range but made a lot of errors. He'd be one that was a hot dog that wasn't that good, but he could play a little.

Thanks for putting me out of my misery. Ever since I read this thread Tito's name was at the tip of my tongue and I just couldn't remember it!!! Needless to say I second Smed's nomination of Tito.

...comes to mind..Rey Rey couold pick it very very well until he broke his arm, by the way...

He wasn't so much of a hot dog on the field as in the press, but honorable mention has to be granted to Derek Bell.
