Daniel Suarez: “I believe Kyle has a very big resume on his back that supports him a lot, but even with that, he’s struggling. He has lost his main sponsor of many years, and now that the team, in my opinion, the team hasn’t done a good job selling him. They have known that M&Ms is leaving for a long time, and they haven’t been able to find anything. I find that surprising.”
Oh, by the way, Suarez is close on his own extension.
