He is still one of the smartest hitters around, and the other nite the Texas reliever was throwing 100mph and PK was turning him around with hard hit foul balls pulled over the 3rd base dugout.
He still has bat speed, when healthy.
I hope he gets 100% healthy and comes back on a year to year basis.
In case fans have failed to notice....it is hard to find good hitters around MLB these days...guys above .260 are hard to find.
It's easy to find middle of the order hitters who can drive in more than 42 runs and score more than 30 runs. That is ridiculously horrible production for a guy who has batted 4th or 5th most of the year.
I can't imagine why any team would want him if he decides to keep playing.
