Finally looks like a good move to me. Course he'll probably hit .210 next year after he finally understands the Twins way.

Haha that was my exact thought. I am surprised Willingham is still here also

Good move. I like Suzuki and his .306 average.

so when he's hitting .225 next year - will this be the new 'worst contract in team history'?

Not even close. A really good catcher that only hits .225 is still a good deal at 6 mill.

That would be Nishioka.

Guess we add him to the overabundance of 1b and dh we already have on the team. Then again he might be catching if Suzuki eventually hits like his career avg.

I like his 700+ OPS. He comes from the Oakland A's, a team that stresses the ability to get on base and score runs, period. Not power or batting average or home runs or stats that are often overrated. If you really watch him at bat, you see how patient he is, taking pitches and swinging at what he knows will work for him. Versus hacking away at everything. Kind of why Mauer is in the predicament he is. I don't think the Twins can screw Suzuki up. Just a matter of him staying healthy or the Twins making as mistake or getting rid of him in some stupid trade.
