    Vanilla.
    I think he's overrated too. But take a look at 2002. It was arguably better than last year. 2001 wasn't bad either (.355 obp 29/33 stolen bases).

    So that's two "good" seasons ('02 and '05) and two solid ones ('06 and '01)

    I'd have to do a more thorough study of his defense, but on first blush he seems to be worth the money ($3.3 mil/year) to me.

    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Overrated has nothing to do with it, from my point of view. I couldn't care less what some moron like McCarver thinks. I'm just arguing that he's a good fit for most baseball teams.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
