Take away about 20 points in average and he isnt that much better than Reynolds and certainly not better than MR at 1b..3 years ago I wanted him for sure but I think he now is a .250 25 HR guy with a high OBA. who would bat 6th or lower in our line up...We have those guys..

That would probably be defined as a ONE year contract.
Perhaps this is a fundamental difference in our philosophies, but I ALWAYS bias towards defense first.

At this point I see see him as a fringe defender heading towards DH.

Any reasons for that thought? I only watch the Yankees when they play the Orioles and he has always looked fine in RF. Looking up his UZR it seems like he is a pretty good defender.
