Good point. I guess it would matter somewhat on one's position in the standings, and in which categories.
I think a lot of people got fooled by his outlier years of 2006 and 2007 and thought he was a 5-category stud. In reality, 2008 is probably is what people should expect from him going forward--great runs, very good SB's, mediocre BA, RBI, and HR. The reality is that other than that two year splurge, he's never been much of a productive hitter. His career OPS is only .770 (Jack Cust has a career OPS of .858)
So, trade for him if you need SB's out of your middle infield. But, project him for a prorated .275. 15 HR, 110 Runs, 68 RBI, 38 SB type of player, not .295, 25, 125, and 90.
