Yeah, it's already a sunk cost. That type of mentality is like investing more and more money into a bad company simply because you've already invested millions. At some point, you're going to have to wake up and realize it's a bad investment and cut ties.

FWIW, Ibanez has hit 0.308/0.377/0.444 over the past 28 days.

Yes. People who have been saying he's awful have fallen into the first half stat syndrome, only noticing the early slump, not the recent hot streak.

I think it's fair to value a sample size of 6 months (last 3 months of last season + first 3 months of this season) over the last month of this season.
