As he ages, he's more likely to slide to a 2.5-3 WAR as his bat and defense slides. For that reason I would look to trade him for a premium return (and at least pick up the option to play the year) because I don't like the long term value that is likely going to be had on his investment.
I'm seeing 2.0, 1.0, 2.0, 2.6, and 3.0 over the past 5 years, with a DWAR slightly negative.
