Suzuki Is On Fire
What a way to start a career for Suzuki.
He’s already off to a great start in terms of average, home runs, and OPS.
But he has a unique skillset that sets him apart from other rookies in the National League.
His ability to draw walks and drive in runs has put him in a place to make history just four games into his Major League career.
It’s hard to believe that Suzuki is the first player to have achieved such a feat since RBIs were ever tracked as a stat.
If he can stay hot, then the Cubs have a chance at vastly improving after a disappointing season last year, when they finished 71-91 and traded away many of their star players.
Suzuki gives the Cubs a chance to potentially bounce back into contention.
More history is sure to come for the Cubs’ rookie star.
We’ll see if he can stay hot and lead the Cubs back to where they were before selling off their assets at last year’s trade deadline.
