Maybe if you want to count his "production" from a few years ago when he was generating slightly positive WAR. If you want to look at this year he is sub-sub-sub-replacement. So is Miguel Cairo. Both are among the 5-10 worst players in the major leagues. They are not worthy of being in the major leagues, certainly not on a post-season roster. It is embarassing that those two guys are on the Reds.
