Locke may not be a bona fide prospect, but he is still in the Habitant family, works hard and continues to play as hard as he can. Give him a break!
Maybe the fans were more sympathetic to Hossa and Hainsey (and others) cause they saw the big upside. It did not pan out but they were cause for hope. Locke may or may not have the best attitude in the world, I don't know (I've read contradicting reports on his work ethics) but he just ain't good enough skill wise (as you reminded us) for us to have any kind of expectations for him
