Rays Preparing to Re-Sign Rocco?

Per the AP:

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Rays hope to start talks soon on a new contract with right fielder-designated hitter Rocco Baldelli.

Rocco provided some pop in his at-bats this season, but I'm still unsure if I really think he's a worth a roster spot. Yes, good guy, nice story, but if he cannot play every day I really don't think I want him playing on this team. On the positive side, Rocco only swung at 28% of balls seen out of zone, the lowest of his last three seasons  I feel confident in saying he will not be making six million in 2009 like his original contact dictated.
