Yeah, same here. It would be a different story if he were at an up-the-middle position, but a sub-.800 OPS with below-average on-base abilities just isn't going to do anything for me. On the bright side, he seems more patient at the plate than ever. Maybe he's finally coming around with more patience and just hasn't yet gotten used to his new approach.
