He didn't bat 3rd, he batted 4th.
Paulie was really banged up this year with getting hit in the eye, having the bad wrist and getting banged up on a play at first base which resulted in a concussion. My guess is Paulie will still be productive for at least 2 more years as long as he stays healthy. I'm sure we will be seeing more of him at DH.
