Seiya Suzuki’s pure talent has been very impressive to the Cubs’ organization and to their fans, but one thing that is not necessarily noticed on the field about Suzuki is that he has been a great clubhouse guy for the Cubs so far. One of the only guys left from the 2016 World Series team, Wilson Contreras was quoted saying this about Suzuki, “He’s the best player I’ve ever played with, to be honest. His plate discipline is insane. Everything that he does on the field, the way he takes care of himself on and off the field is amazing.” Contreras has played with some of the MLB’s best players in his six years with the Chicago Cubs. Guys like Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez, and even Jake Arrieta come to mind. All huge pieces of the World Series team in 2016. Even after being asked about some of those guys, Contreras showed his respect for them, but still said, “I’ve been around with the Cubs in the big leagues for six years and he’s the best player I’ve ever played with.” Some Cubs fans may want to disagree with Contreras and believe that either Bryant, Rizzo, or Baez has to be the best player Contreras has played in his career. It is very interesting that just 18 games into his first MLB season, Contreras is giving Suzuki such high praise. Although it may sound a little bit crazy, I would think that Contreras knows talent when he sees it, especially after playing with some great players in his early years with the Cubs. So, if Wilson Contreras really knows a talented baseball player when he sees one, maybe he’s right about Suzuki being the best player he’s ever played with. After all, the numbers that Suzuki has put up so far would support Contreras’ claim. Suzuki definitely has a ton of talent and a very professional hitting approach. It will be a lot of fun to watch Seiya progress in the MLB. Who knows, maybe the Cubs just signed a future MVP and Hall of Famer in Seiya Suzuki.
