Well that's a fair point, but I guess it depends on if we think he needs to prove anything more. Granted, it's not like he's established himself, so that would be a good reason to wait another year. On the other hand, it's probably safe to think if the Reds gave him a deal similar to Bruce's, that it would still wind up being well worth their while as his defense and power alone will likely justify the money they pay him.
