His first 70 games were great but his next two season he played every single game and topped 100 RBI in each winning a Gold Glove and was a pretty fine player....I believe he played 1 more year before he made pretty good MLB money.......and a couple years ago he had 47 doubles and 20 HR
Agree he sucks now but a lot more than 70 games went into his first bigger contract.
