Do we have any idea why his walk rate dipped last year? I'd love to see him post his OBP #'s from his SF era:
Bill James projecting him at a .353 OBP and a .338 wOBA. I can get behind this, assuming his defense is league average or better, and the decline in his numbers isn't indicative of an actual decline.
I'd say this is probably the case unless they are true to their word and Renteria is a backup in which case I suspect it'll be Lewis and BP at the top. But yes fantastic move and got him a whole lot cheaper than I thought.
