Heh. I wouldn't be surprised if he actually did pitch at some point. He's said that he wants to.
I'm torn about it. I love watching him play, but at the same time I realize the haul he would bring in. If they decide to truly tear it down and rebuild then he's a good chip.
As far as aging goes, I wouldn't be surprised if he had two careers. When his speed starts to go it's possible he converts into more of a .275 guy who hits 35 HRs a year. He's got the power... Heck maybe even a third career where he pitches!
