Plus his K's are a concern for many of these teams, they just don't know how much he can inject into their offense.
Another example of why last year's mirage set this club back.
If they indeed want to deal him and have been planning on doing it for sometime, 2006 would have been the time to do it. The contract looks a heck of a lot better for the team acquiring him and gives them a full year to work on an extension.
The Reds, in turn, get better return. If they deal him now, they get way less.
2006 set this organization back a few years.
