The Brewers' Pennant Express hit a little snag:

The loss of Graffanino represents a significant blow to the Brewers' depth because he appeared at all four infield positions this season, and also started three games in left field. The 35-year-old was playing on a one-year, $3.25 million contract he signed in January and batted .238 with a career-high nine home runs in 231 at-bats.

"He's obviously a big part of this team," said fellow veteran utility man Craig Counsell.

Yes, the fella with the .705 OPS was a "big part" of the team. I can appreciate that he's a great guy in the clubhouse, and his versatility is an asset. But after a while, don't those great intangibles get outweighed by the lack of production?
