Please, pretty please?
I would love for him to hit, but the Reds have been waiting on that for a few years. At this point, he's 27 and there's no signs of him cutting down on his strikeouts. There's very little chance he's ever going to hit any more consistently than he is. It's hard to get hits when you're getting mowed down on strikes 30% of the time.
