I'm with you on most of them, but Jeff Nelson? Didn't he go on to win four WS rings with the Yankees? One of the top setup men/middle relievers of his era. Mostly because of his team, but certainly not forgotten.
Nelson, Hanson, and Fleming all had decent major league careers. Salkeld could have been really good but he was taken down by injuries. DeLucia and Lennon were overrated even then.
Jeff Pearlman in an article on si.com today mentioned at the end of the article that he grew up with Fleming and that he is now a teacher. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/jeff_pearlman/04/23/growing.old/index.html?eref=sihp
