Reds announcer, watching the replay of his homer: "One hand... off the front foot... change up."

Reds hit five homers. Marlins had four hits. 

In other exciting action, Suarez was thrown out twice on the bases.

Ha - in the home league that Bob and I play in, he went in the second Ultra round ($10).

A pick after I'd taken O'Brien.

But was able to trade for him later in the season, and had him for 3 more years after extending him a year.

Maybe my best PCL pick ever. Drafted him in the late $2 reserve rounds, and owned him the past 4 years for $2/$2/$7/$7.

The irony is that I targeted him on the premise that Zach Cozart sucks, but Cozart was playing pretty well, but then got hurt and the rest is history.

Should have given him 3 years @ $12 in the spring of 2017, but, much like the date for the next Presidential election, hindsight is 2020.

A long time ago I looked at how many years in a row a player could improve. This was so long ago that the one player who improved five years in a row was Dave Winfield.

If Suarez had improved to $20 last year, for his fifth in a row, I'd say there was a fair chance of him improving in No. 6. But he stepped up big last year, setting a pretty high bar in his year 27 season. I'm buying futures in Plexiglas.

His established BABIP and FB% says probably not. OTOH his HR/Fly still has room for growth and his PX/xPX,  HCt%, and missed time last year says a small step up is still possible.

Can he keep getting better? My feeling is last year is maybe a plateau. But it also feels like a plateau he could easily hold for three or four years.

Every year he gets better. Can he do it again?

Peter says no. Every other projection I've looked at says no.

I say he can.
