A Ranger trade that didn't work out so well

Former Ranger Alfonso Soriano became just the fourth player in history to join the 40 homer-40 stolen base club last night.

You may recall the Rangers shipped Soriano off to Washington before spring training and received often-injured and mostly-ineffective center fielder Brad Wilkerson in return.

I know I'm breaking the first rule of trades, which is "Don't look back" and I mostly supported the trade at the time. However, it's difficult not to wish for a do-over on this one.

Congrats, Alfonso. I'm happy for your success.
