Yeah, so you are only considering his career best season at age 34? A season where he got on base at a .293 clip. Yessh. Oh and his career OBP is .264.
I do respect the hell out the guy for what he's done and how hard he had to work to finally become a MLB player. That being said, I would prefer him to be someone else's feel good story now and in his spot another OF with some pop. Nothing crazy, preferably a LH handed hitter who could step in at the #6 to split up all the righties and actually be a viable pinch hit candidate. I don't think DeWayne is that guy, and him being on the roster blocked any of that type of transaction from happening.
