I am in the club that thinks this is simply a career year but I also think so far he has proved valuable to the club and should be kept around. I don't think he will be a long term solution but if he does keep up his great year I would like to bring him back as a bench/utility player next year.
Why do you want to hate him? I don't think that any of us who argue against him hate him or want to hate him. I'm thrilled that he's having a career year. I hope the Reds ride the wave for as long as it lasts and maybe get a nice offer for him. I just think that after a year like this he's going to want to get paid next year and someone will be willing to pay him, I just hope it's not the Reds.
