Of course if all you're looking at is offensive numbers then Ozzie was pretty bad and Leury might be up there too but if you consider there to be other aspects to baseball besides offense, then Ozzie and possibly Leury can offer key contributions.
TWTW! Seriously, defense is undervalued by many and I think Leury's speed and versatility will be a welcome addition.

If you wanted a runner advanced, Ozzie was just about as good as anybody.

I might have been Willie's biggest( possibly only) fan.

The reality is we needed a guy who could play some backup shortstop and we needed some salary room and, just my opinion, we needed Rios off this team. And he's an interesting player...really good at 2 tools (v. mediocrity at 3 or 4).
Here's the Rangers Utility infielder who is starting today:http://www.baseball-reference.com/pl...osalad01.shtml
