My guess is that the 2M we're giving Texas got us Hunter and, if he were the only player involved I would have been happy. I can't remember the last time this team gave money to get a better prospect in a trade.
To me, Davis is a throw-in and we should not stop looking for a 1B prospect (Yonder Alonso?). At this point it will probably be a winter acquisition.
I think we see how Davis hits for the rest of 2011, and if he does well, he's out 1B in 2012. If not, we look for a 1B prospect.
