Decent defensively, soft from time to time though, and also very prone, but he didn't cost you a mere 2nd for nothing.
Very true, his numbers looked a whole lot better about a month or so ago...especially the +/- if I'm not mistaken. Should be a decent replacement for a guy that is pretty hard to replace in Bert. NYR comes away looking pretty good getting Umberger...looks like he'll get that fat contract afterall.
Overall probably the best trade of the day, both ways.
