Exactly. He was playing like someone who was going to end up being a bargain at a 4.5 cap hit for 6 years. Turned out he ended up being at or slightly above market for what we got for the first five of those six years. Not a dreadful deal but not the home run it would have been had he kept on having 60+ point seasons.
And while I'm happy to have him play well this year (we sure need it), my concern is that this season will get him a 4 or 5 year deal at 5 mil or so and he won't live up to that for the duration of his contract.
