Fantasy-wise he is a fine player to have, but in real life he just isn't a very good baseball player. A leadoff hitter who hits .250-.260 and only walks once every 4 games isn't ideal. A spacious Colorado OF give's him more room to get hits than the tight confines in Cincy.
Again in fantasy I'll take him to get me the SB's I need, but if I was running a team, he wouldn't be a guy I'd want to leadoff for me.
