He has lost his power and speed
4 years ago he was a 30-30 man this season he is on pace for 11 HR and 9 SB for the whole season, he only had 18 HR & 16 SB last season
Hell Votto is on pace to steal more bases than BP (13)
His UZR/150 (defense) has also dropped off a cliff. From a high of 17.2 in 2007 to a 10.7 his season
Agree about his offensive numbers being on the decline.
Disagree about his defense. I don't care what his UZR or ZFF numbers are. His defense still looks topnotch to me.
I don't see him getting a contract like Crawford got from any team. I think BP would be smarter to take a hometown discount and do like 4 years $32M. Cause I don't think he gets that much on the open market. And if does, that team is stupid for signing him.
Jason Werth? Adam Dunn? Uggla? Proving everyday that signing these guys to THAT MUCH MONEY is ridiculous.
