so three straight seasons of injury and low OBP aren't as important as a career year in a prime age of 28, where he still couldn't top 325 AB's?
Exactly why does everyone want to keep him? Nothing he brings to the table can't be replicated by what the Reds already have, and if they really wanted to make a splash, throw 6-7 mil at Damon.
