He was a much bigger failure of a pick than I expected given track record of Meek and Veal (although outfielder Raynor was no great shakes he at least made the opening day roster)

Is he a better fielder, hitter, or runner? Why this guy over a arm?

you dont even know anything about the player, so let it go.
