I don't think I'd go that far...Sickels had him as high as the #3 prospect in the Rangers system after his breakout 2004, which would have made him their top hitter.
Of course, you are probably right about the under the radar statement, in that he would have been #2 on the depth chart behind Soriano
That, coupled with the fact that he rose through the minors so quickly, no one really had an extensive book on him.
Iguchi and M. Giles were available, and I decided to stick with Kinsler. I like him hitting sixth in that lineup and should have some nice opportunites for RBIs. The other two hit at the top of the lineup.
