We're only paying him $3.5M too, this isn't like Dunn taking up $15M of the payroll.

BTW - Keppinger can fill a lot of different roles. If he bounces back next year, I'm not averse to having him fill an infield spot for $4M.

We have bigger fish to fry than Keppinger.
In 369 plate appearances he has 11 extra base hits. 11! He's absolutely awful defensively. According to WAR, he's the worst player in baseball. I'll take Dunn's productive 15mm every day, all day over Keppinger.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).
