He's not that bad. So he's not "clutch". He is still a valuable part of the team. He moved his family to st. Louis. Does charity work. He is good friends with Freese, pal around in the off season.Working to keep Freese from crawling back into the bottle. Invites minor league talent to work out with them in St. Louis. He palys with passion. There are more parts that are needed on a team other than "clutch".
That's nice if he's making $4 mil a year and batting seventh.
It's not like I want him to suck. If he pulls out of this slump and stays out of it, I'll be thrilled. Hope it happens. But I won't hold my breath.
