He had a .966 OPS in 29 games in September/October. Not the ridiculous numbers he was putting up in April but still really good.Even when he came back late this past season, he was nowhere near the form he had in April. I'm not advocating letting him go, but there are certainly valid reasons to not going all in long term.
I don’t think a big contract is really that risky. Even if he just played 100 games a year, he adds so much value in those 100 games that it really wouldn’t be that big of a deal. Obviously we’re better if he plays 140+.
