BABIP can easily fall off if you stop squaring the ball up as much because you stop caring about working at your craft.
Yea I know he's a d-bag. He's been benched more than once, he's been criticized a lot for his lack of effort, his manager has been fired etc.

That's what would make it a risk, and also would be the only reason you'd be able to get him at all. If he wasn't a risk there would be no shot at getting him because he's an immense talent.

There's also the chance he doesn't care because he plays on a team that draws 137 people on a good night. Maybe he'd actually play for a good team, with a player friendly manager, and a strong fan base? Maybe he needs to get out of Florida? Maybe he's just a d-bag that will never change regardless of his situation? I don't know, that's why its a risk.

But if you could get him for a good deal, it'd might be a risk worth taking.
