And I think he still has more upside. I can see him really upping his bunting game, for one.
Why do you say that, BiL?

But seriously, if you project him as a .350+ OBP guy with ~.200 ISO, I'm not sure I want him bunting.   Suppose he bunts 10 more times for hits?  He'd likely get on 3 -4 times if he swung away, and one of those is likely to be for extra bases.  IF you restrict it to times when no one is on, maybe fewer hits.  I suppose it may force the corners to play in for bunts, lessening their range a bit, but I guess the 3d baseman already is in some for him.
