He'd also be worth it if he hit 30 HRs and had an OPS over .900, neither of which will happen though. As others have pointed out, he's on the wrong side of 30, he has never hit for over .300, has no power at all and his SB numbers dropped off precipitously last year. 12 Million isn't bad for a leadoff guy with power, but for one who is basically a singles hitter? It's not exactly a good contract.
