Cris Carpenter from the Chronology
Nov 17, 1992 - Baseball holds the expansion draft to stock the rosters of the NL's two new teams‚ the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies. A total of 72 players are chosen. P David Nied is the 1st pick of the Rockies‚ while OF Nigel Wilson is selected 1st by the Marlins. The Fish take Jose Martinez with #2‚ while the Rocks pick vet Charlie Hayes. The best picks for Florida are #4 Trevor Hoffman‚ eventually packaged for Gary Sheffield; #11 Jeff Conine‚ who will hit 81 homers in 4 years; and #18 Cris Carpenter‚ later dealt to Texas for Robb Nen. As for Colorado‚ they will find gold with #6 Eric Young‚ #10 Joe Girardi‚ #16 Vinny Castilla‚ and #18 Armando Reynoso. Picks #13 and #14 are good ones-Andy Ashby‚ Brad Ausmus and Doug Bochtler-but they'll all go to the Padres in 1993 in an ill-fated deal for pricey vet pitchers Bruce Hurst and Greg Harris.
Sep 7, 1991 - Tim Teufel breaks up a scoreless tie between the Padres and Cardinals by hitting a 10th inning walkoff homerun. Mike Maddux with 2 innings of relief for the Pads is the winner and Cris Carpenter takes the loss.
