Poll: Grade the Ian Desmond signing

The Rangers have signed Ian Desmond for one year, $8 million. Grade that deal...

So, we've had a day to let the news sink in...Ian Desmond is a Texas Ranger.  He's starting the season as the everyday left fielder, although it seems likely he'll also see time at other positions as needed.

Desmond rejected a $100M+ contract from the Nationals a couple of years ago, had a disappointing season in 2015, and is now going from being an offense-oriented shortstop to being a left fielder/possible super utility guy.  The Rangers had to forfeit their first round pick -- #19 overall -- to sign Desmond to a one year, $8 million deal.

Now that we've had some time to absorb this...what grade do you give this deal for the Rangers?
