If someone never figures it out and routinely posts 3.8 WAR they had the ceiling of a HOF.
Danny doesn't have that ceiling. But anyone that compares pre-breakout Desmond and Danny doesn't have a clue as to what they are talking about.
Desmond was routinely one of the worst rated SS's in baseball prior to his breakout. Danny is already a 1st division 2B, warts and all.
