1.) He is a rental

The other thing is he might be the single dumbest player in baseball. I mean just consistently stupid decisions. There was a game last year against the Braves where the Phillies were down by 2 and he led off the 9th. He was hacking on 3-0 hacking again on 3-1 and after fouling off ball 4 three times, he finally got a single but was promptly erased when he tried to steal second. I honestly don't know if the Redszone servers could handle Shane Victorino.
#2 and #3 would make him fitting right in
