I'd nominate Aramis Ramirez and Mark Teixiera.

I have had both of them over the past couple years on variouss teams. Both had weak firs halves and super strong second halves. Try and trade for them mid year ;-)

Here is Ichiro's monthly breakdown of Hits, Runs, HR, RBI and SB last year: These numbers are approximate.

April: 20 Games Played, 5 Hitless games, 25 Hits, 12 R, 2 HR, 12 RBI, 1 SB
May: 30 Games Played, 5 Hitless games, 46 Hits, 26 R, 2 HR, 12 RBI, 13 SBs
June: 27 Games Played, 3 hitless games, 47 Hits, 18 R, 1 HR, 15 RBI, 9 SBs
July: 28 Games Played, 6 Hitless games 33 Hits, 17 R, 0 HR, 5 RBI, 7 SB
August: 27 Games Played, 4 Hitless games, 45 Hits, 22 R, 0 HR, 11 RBI, 6 SB
September: 29 Games Played, 4 Hitless games, 42 Hits, 14 R, 1 HR, 15 RBI, 1 SB

He also had 25 game hit streak followed by 2 hitless games and then an 18 game hit streak. So for about 2 months he had at least a hit.

So out of the 161 games that Ichiro played in:

17% of the time he doesn't get a hit
83% of the time he gets a hit
47% of the time he gets multi-hits in a game

Hit streaks:

1 hit streak of 25 games
2 hit streaks of 15 or more games
4 hit streaks of 10 or more games
12 hit streaks of 5 or more games
16 hit streaks of 3 or more games

How much more consistent can a player be? Do you expect him to get 4 hits every game instead of 1? The only stat I see him being streaky in is SB and that is very normal with speed guys. July was not a great month for him, by his standards but was still much better than most.

Throughout the season he only had 27 games without a hit. Only 3 streaks where he had 3 straight games without a hit. He doesn't slump often, yet by your statement it is as if he disappears for months at a time and gives you nothing. I strongly disagree with that statement.

Perhaps he is flaky with the settings you use in your league or maybe you draft him solely for SBs. I don't know but I draft in my H2H leagues based on a philosophy of drafting consistent hitters and I have never owned a hitter who has been more consistent than Ichiro.

I play H2H and I have never had Ichiro go into a massive slump where he didn't give me anything at all. He is always giving me Hits(if that is a league setting) or AVG.

I would be interested to know what exactly you are talking about. I don't know what settings you use in your standard league so perhaps I am overlooking something.

First player coming to mind is Jim Thome, can almost count on his numbers being non existant before june and then he is as hot as I have ever seen anyone for a month then cools for 2weeks and then another hot streak for for 3 weeks, could also be said to be "Warm Weather" player.Too bad his career is just about over
If there is baseball in heaven!!!! Be very aware of the starting lineup

I don't know about last year but I had Crawford a couple years ago and I remember him being very streaky. I had Beltran that same year and I remember him being the same aswell, I had such an awesome offense that year so it didnt really matter :)
I love my Diamondbacks!

Aramis Ramirez two yrs ago...ice cold the 1st half of the year to one of the best players the 2nd half. I traded for him mid-year and he helped me win my league.
