June: 8 HR, 21 RBI, 22 BB
July: 7 HR, 15 RBI, 13 BB
Aug: 7 HR, 15 RBI, 17 BB

Not sure how averaging 7 HR, 15+ RBI and some walks a month makes him complete worthless. And those are the "awful" numbers after May you speak of. If he did that every month he would have 42 HR and 90+ RBI for a season. There IS value there, thats why he was hitting #3 for a first place team for majority of the season.
Just because you play a mediocre player every day doesn't mean his **** shines any brighter. Would you want the Sox to pay Dan Johnson, Luke Scott or Mark Reynolds $15 million/year? Because their numbers are pretty damn similar.
