If LA does not at least make the WS, then they made a bad trade. Yu also could likely resign with Texas.
Calhoun is a bum who cannot play in the field. Daniels allowed himself to be taken advantage of and showed how weak he really is as GM. Overpays to bring people in and accepts garbage when moving players out.
While the Rangers didn't get the haul people thought they would they still got what they could. Calhoun is a stud who can flat out take, he's worth more than the 2nd round comp pick.
