Wasn't he offered as part of the trade.  Can blame you though, I was dumb enough to offer him to you and probably 5 other GM's

Makes me have a twinge of regret trading him to you before that as well.  I got Felix in a playoff push for him but failed to make the playoffs that year.  Missed it by 1 game.

I'm not sure why he didn't get helium... he had the exact same pattern...

Struggled the first time he moved up a level. Repeated the level and CRUSHED it... moved up a level, struggled... repeated it and crushed it...

then broke through last year...

the guy can hit... and run.

Obviously, its WAAAAAAY to early to say much about him, because I've seen starts sort of like this before only to have them fail... but Story should have gotten more love from the prospect community in my opinion. He wasn't a "shooting star" - but had a very solid track record of improvement.
