I have no idea what argument you formulated on Figgins three years ago. If it was based on him not declining in his 30s, I'd argue that wasn't terribly rational. If it was that a guy you expected to be kind of average was what the Mariners needed to improve their terrible offense, then that wasn't rational either.
More to the point, after Figgins went belly up and the Mariners have finished 14th in the AL in all three slashline categories plus scoring for three years running, I'd hope you'd recognize that you misread the tea leaves on this one.
Don't be that guy. Let it go.
