So when did he hurt his hand? Could this possibly explain why he was great for two months and then garbage all the way through October? I like that explanation a lot more than, "he's washed up".
I think this hand thing is potentially good news. If he has a fixable injury, BP could be back to his more productive self.
It's better than being over the hill or "done". Or on the downside with a bloated contract.
Hope BP gets a good report and he's back to full strength.
BTW, BP is 2 years older than Choo.
I think hoping a .735 hitter will bounce back from a .700 season is tilting at all kinds of windmills.

Tired of bp playing through injury to the detriment of his bat.
2015 Rotation: Under Construction
BP seems to be getting more frail as he ages which is concerning. Reds should count on him for 130-135 starts assuming he is back in 2014 - unless he finds that Big Papi magic age-machine potion...
