I'm glad you post that every time he does something good. I'd like to see it a little more often though.
He's 3rd on the team in WAR. He's not a problem.
He's not a problem but he's still not where he could be. This is actually good news. We're where we are and he's nowhere near as great as he was in the first half last year.
He's not a problem yet people still crap on him. His May numbers so far are .304/385/.457. His April 2013 OPS was actually higher than his April 2012 OPS, but you wouldn't know it if you listened to fans. He was 2nd in OBP, 3rd in SLG, 3rd in OPS, 2nd in WAR, and 8th in HR last season yet all anyone says is that he stunk in the 2nd half of last year as if he was supposed to maintain his pre-All Star numbers. Fans seem to take a perverse joy in somehow diminishing him like by saying "our best hitter has been our worst hitter" or calling him terrible when he slumps rather than appreciating the fact that one of the best players in baseball is on the team.
