Nivar's 25 years old and has put up numbers of:

.302 with 16 home runs and 30 steals in 868 at bats between AA and AAA. Not great, but not exactly worthless either. Say a leadoff hitter with 10-15 home runs, 30+ steals and a .290 average or so in a year or two. That's not too terrible. He'd be even better if he learned to take a walk. At 25, he's got quite a bit left to learn. Shame we gave up on him so easily, and for so little in return though.

Bottomline, Yes, I do believe we could have done better than Riley for him. :-/
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
