The article calls him an aging veteran and says he is going to regress. If some fan can figure that out, why couldn't most front offices of contending teams? The sell high notion because he was an All Star makes no sense. He is sell high only if there is demand and he is deemed as the one catcher that could put people over the top. Somebody has posted about how poor of a pitch framer he is. If that is the hot skill the team is looking for, there goes places Suzuki could go
Depends on what your notion of "sell high" is, doesn't it? Isn't his value higher now, than it was this past off season? If he turns back into 2012-13 Suzuki next year, you won't be able to get anywhere near his current value, whatever that is in a trade. The idea of selling high doesn't always mean you'll get a King's ransom, just that you can get more for him now than you could have previously or will likely get in the future.
You could argue that Suzuki's value to the Twins is greater than what they will get in a trade, so it doesn't make sense. However, with him being a FA at the end of the year, I would disagree, unless they can agree to a contract extension, which so far it sounds like they can't. So in those terms his trade value may never be higher.
