"If you took 2018 and 2019 out, Christian Yelich’s career would look like that of hundreds of good-not-great outfielders. Because he had that run, however, we expect more, expect 35 homers and a 1000 OPS, expect him to live up to the nine-year, $215-million contract -- six years and $175 million in new money -- he signed in 2020.
