Is Dustin Ackley the most disappointing Mariner in history?

Title says it all. I had pegged him as some sort of crazy hybrid of Chase Utley and Wade Boggs. Even with Smoak and Montero, you knew they had to absolutely rake to be worth anything because they were 1B/DH types. Ryan Anderson is the only guy I can really compare to Ackley and his career was destroyed by injuries. And we knew Jeff Clement wasn't going to stick at catcher, so I think Ackley seems more disappointing than him. Ackley even managed to exceed our expectations some as a second-baseman, but my goodness, what the hell happened to his bat?
