Actually as a Red he's had 4 seasons with his OPS+ below 100 and 4 above it. Obviously doesn't take defense into account but at least offensively he's been below average as often as he's been above average. Overall that adds up to average with a downward trend the last two years. This has nothing to do with his recent altercation, if someone would take his full contract off his hands I don't want him here when he's OPSing .650 as a 35-36 year old.
