Since he has no range, no quickness, and no ability to get to any baseball not directly hit at him, are his defensive statistics really of any value? Not that they are stellar anyhow, but some would suggest he isn't a "bad" defensive 3rd baseman. After watching him up close and personal the last couple years in spring training, I am convinced he costs us many more runs than he produces. I am not a stats guy like many of you, but on the offensive side, I often wonder how many strikeouts he commits with RISP. I am also suggesting that what he is paid for his lack of production makes him the worst decision in the organization in a few years. Particularly when that contract insures he will get the lions share of time on the field. I realize he has improved slightly at the plate recently, but how could he not? Looks like Dave Kingman revisited to me.
