This isn't a back-handed compliment, but I think his overall numbers are better than his season, similar to Gomes, but not as bad as Gomes. He's still streaky. He had 3 fantastic months, and one of those was a Votto-like month, September. He also had 3 very bad months. Since the ASB, he's got an .847 OPS. I actually think he can be an .830+ OPS guy over the course of a season, possibly as soon as next year.
And that would make him the best CF in baseball.
god that burns to type, but in a good way. I've never enjoyed being wrong more.
His numbers are trending forward, esp. since his benching. I'd say he may have turned the corner, so I'm not sure its fair to say that "his overall numbers are better than his season."
