Without being snarky, what was the downfall of Wilkerson?

Injuries, lack of talent, PED's?

I remember hearing a lot about him when he was with the Expos... and after that, he just sort of collapsed?

I think it was the same thing that was the downfall of guys like Aaron Rowand and Austin Kearns and maybe even Alex Gordon. They were asked to be something they're not. The Texas rangers expected a lot out of Wilkerson and he wasn't able to deliever. Remember how he was going to bulk up to play a corner outfield position and should become a power guy?
