Everything he's done this year is in line with his career averages, except batting average, which fits in real nice with the rest of our team. What are you expecting? Triple Crown?
Plus he had a broken leg in the offseason.
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. For reference, Alexei is due to be paid $9.5M next season...
We have bigger fish to fry than Keppinger.
