2020 Tiger Non-Game Thread Thead in Detroit Tigers Posted September 28 36 minutes ago, RandyMarsh said: JD has to be one of the most surprising. Since his breakout in 2014 he's been one of the most consistent hitters in baseball, going from basically a mid 900+ OPS to .681 is a remarkable dropoff. He only just turned 33 in August so it's not like he is that old. Definitely at the age where you would expect some decline but nothing that drastic. On the whole, guys who take a while to bloom tend to decline earlier and harder, if I'm remembering my Bill James correctly.
