    He is going to miss some time but how much??? So who will pick it up for the DBacks is the question.

    Reason #1 why it would be insane to offer AJ a big contract - he can't stay healthy, mainly because of plays like that where he had no chance to get the ball, in a game that was out of reach already

    He didn't think the game was out of reach...especially if he makes that catch, big play momentum and all. Having said that, he needs to pull up there and field the ball and get the next hitter.

    I suspect the Dbacks will in fact give him a big contact. He is popular among casual fans and for an organization that needs to battle to get people in the seats...

    I’d extend him now if he’d accept a low ball offer.

    He's a rare 5 tool player. He is getting older though, hopefully he realises he's not helping the club if he can't stay on the field for 150+ a year. Yes he can make better decisions out there. Hustle within reason and context.
