You also got Arias in the A-Rod trade. Who you turned into Francouer, however you feel about that. Although I do believe Robinson Cano was on the list of players to be named later who you could have chosen and went with Arias instead.
Yes he did, and his time in the majors was way too small of a sample size to make a judgement. It's not like he was Chris Davis.
.621, .821, and .960 OPS in his 3 seasons in the minors as a Ranger. He had one good season, one horrible season, and one average season. You're looking for a little more offensive production from a first basemen. I don't doubt he had the talent, obviously he was rated pretty highly, but it didn't seem to me like he was the super prospect that people thought he was. He sure turned out okay, though.
