6th in WAR among 22 qualified 2d basemen in MLB, 3d in the NL.

But you are right, the offense was relatively down. 15th in wOBA in MLB, 8th in the NL.  Most of his value was in defense.
So from what I can understand about those sabremetrics, he's a pretty decent second baseman in comparison to the rest of the league, so what exactly are we complaining about? Tolerable offensive production and really good defense from a position where offense is hard to come by. That is acceptable IMO. Not every player is going to be a superstar.
