I just think you have an unjustifiable hatred for him and are talking out of your ass. But that is just my mere expectations.
It doesnt matter where he was drafted. In his rookie year, he had a .906 OPS including 21 HRs as a 24 year old. He was mentioned along with teammate Carl Crawford as a big reason for optimism in Tampa. Now, no one said he'd be as good as Crawford, but he's never matched his great rookie numbers and he's had a few downright lousy years.
