Even if possible, pass. Baggage, risks, injuries, "special" treatment, etc, etc, etc. PASS!
I wasn't arguing whether or not he's worth that kind of money (although his season as a whole was a .930 OPS so I sense there's a bit of cherry-picking going on). Rather, I was more disagreeing with the narrative that he was "bad" the second half of the year. An .830 OPS from a centerfielder is still pretty good. We'd all be in heaven if Drew Stubbs could do that.
