You know, I don't think so. He's already 30 and he's a line drive doubles-type hitter. Those guys' value falls off pretty quickly as they get older. I like him, and he's a good ball player, but it took him too long to get to the top. Once every third drive into the gap becomes a rainbow fly out, and instead of hitting .320 he's hitting .270, you can replace him with a younger guy for less money if you don't have him in a long guaranteed contract.
