I know it will take time for him to produce, I am simply saying that I don't have any confidence that he will produce consistently, especially in the playoffs.
I definitely understand your criticism, as well as your lack of confidence in him.

However, we aren't in a position to upgrade on Booth, nor does it currently make sense to get rid of him. He's been injury plagued and had to deal with Kesler when he was healthy.

I'd definitely give Booth a year and a half more before passing on final judgment.
