His slugging percentage is the highest it's been since his rookie season and his OPS is 50 some points higher than his career average, and that's even with him "slumping" the last couple of games. Not to mention he had a pretty serious wrist injury this year.
I don't know that he'll reproduce this next season but there is no reason to dog him this year.
