De Aza just isn't that good. He's what some people like to call a "AAAA" player who had a nice little run of success for us for about a year or a year and a half.
He was another part of KW's "let's try to compete with spare parts" teams of recent years. Sometimes these kind of pick ups turn out to be successes....but even when they are successes, it is often short-lived and that player eventually comes back down to earth.
