High on Suzuki

Is it just me or has Kurt been a huge upgrade over Kendall at the plate.  He's made good contact and has a hit in each of the 7 games so far this season.  He only struck out during the first game against Boston and only has one walk but I think he's doing  a great job of seeing the ball and putting his bat on it.

I think that he's doing very well with the staff and he could likely be our starter for many seasons to come.  Granted the wear and tear behind the plate may lead to fatigue later this season, but for now he looks great.

If we can start putting Suzuki, Ellis, & Barton in a row I think we could start to see some nice trends at getting guys around the bases.  None of them hit for power but they do hit and it may be a recipie for more RISP.  Just a thought, I know, but thinking and scheming is the fun of baseball.
