I think it's still too early to call him a complete bust. He's young and has the talent to turn it around. All he needs is to heat up for a month or two.
That being said, if he puts up no more than 25-28 HR this year, he will be a huge bargain for next year's draft.
The first round of this year's draft completely sucked if you were picking 6-7-8.
It was an absolute crap-shoot between Tex, Lee (I didn't think he could duplicate last year, and now he's out anyways), Tejada (coming off a bad year) and Santana (pitcher, yuck).
I would have been much happier at 10-11-12.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.
