I'm not sure why people keep expecting Espinosa to be a .270 hitter. That's just not his game. He's valuable as is, no need to really fix anything. He could always improve on his K rate but he's a solid player as is.
Food for thought. Espinosa's WAR in 2012 (3.
was more than Desmond's 2009-2011 seasons combined (3.1).
Having said all that... I think Desmond can put close to an .800 OPS in 2013 and Espinosa around .730.
