    Possible change. I know Frank Howard put up huge power numbers but almost all of them were with the Washington Senators before they moved to Texas.
    I would suggest Julio Franco. Here is the entry the blog Texas Ranger trades,
    2B: Julio Franco – Julio has a .307 career batting average with the Rangers, which is 3rd on the all-time list. He is also 5th in stolen bases. He was a three-time All-Star for the Rangers (winning the All-Star game MVP once) and won a batting title.

    Jose Canseco should get an honorable mention for *ahem* stimulating many of their careers.
