    I should say so (19.5 K/9...... .190 BA...... 2.71 FIP), even with the first nightmare outing). To paraphrase a famous sage, "the early reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated."

    Or get a great, or not so great deal for Suzuki, let Pinto get the bulk of the PAs for the rest of the year. And then make a more informed analysis on whether to re-sign Suzuki in the offseason.
