Perhaps a cautionary reminder about thinking players with long track records can radically change results, and to not jump to unfounded conclusions.

 

 

FWIW, he's the breakdown of what happened to Suzuki this year or maybe to put it more in line with his long track record, what made his 2014 season so successful: http://twinsdaily.co...-know/?p=413832.

 

To your point about radically changing results, I do believe this can be and has been done a lot in baseball. It doesn't always last. Judging by Suzuki's contact rate and line drive rate, I believe he is still capable of producing similar to how he did in 2014. If you had a serviceable platoon candidate for someone to give him more rest as Nick suggests today, I think you will see numbers in between 2014 and 2014 as Ryan said: http://twinsdaily.co...-the-post-r4232
