I think a lot of the angst is centered around his terrible decisions and instincts as a baseball player this year. He has made 9 terrible outs on the basepaths (so far) which is inexcusable for an MLB player. He gets picked off, takes off running when he shouldn't, etc. The mistakes are exasperating to anyone watching a team like ours that is starved for runs. He also has been sub-par in the outfield this season.
