Default Ace-9 offsuit: Am I losing too much?

Just looking over my pokertracker database, as I'm 10k hands into my 6max career, and I've got a pretty sizable loss playing A9o - .5BB per hand, which seems way too high. Obviously it's just 10k hands, but I'm thinking I may be playing it too aggressively at the bad opponents at $1/$2.

My VP$IP is 80.20, PFR 63.37, and I'm seeing the showdown 32% of the time (edited for clarity - these stats are just for A9o), which seems high. I'm thinking I'm pushing it too far, and probably calling a river bet too much. Or are these stats reasonably in line with successful players?

I'll try and find a good example from the hand histories.

10,000 hands arent going to tell you very much about anything

Cornboy,
If you only have 10k overall hands your individual hand performance with a hand like A9o could swing I'd estimae about .2 either way without changing the way you play it. Being -.5/hand with it looks like a bad sign though. It's probably worth taking a closer look at it to see what your doing with it.

OP, seems like your VPIP is far too high. I'm not sure what the correct % is (could be just sample size though).

400 Times
+0.07BB/hand
VPIP: 63
PFR: 53
RFI: 36

53/43

+0.08

80/63 has got to be wrong. I can think of a who bunch of spots I wouldn't play A9o. Though I have been opening up with it more lately.
