I don't think much of him but he's better than a few of the guys we have right now.
I think the bigger mistake was that after blowing up the core of the team two summers ago, they should have traded him if they couldn't agree on an extension. Even his haters have to acknowledge other teams coveted him, they should have done something with him.
