Anyone have any thoughts on Ichiro this year...

I am trying to decide whether I should keep him as a keeper, but his age is getting up there.

It depends on who you would have to cut to keep him. Can you give us your team and how many keepers you get to choose.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

He is still only 30, I mean, that's one year older than A-Rod and two years older than Soriano, but you would never hesitate keeping him. The league has figured out Ichiro, but he's still a fantastic play and should continue to hit for a little bit more power. If none of your other keepers can beat .320-15-70 with 30 SB, then don't worry about age and snag him.

~.315, 10-15 HR, 70 RBI, and 35 SB...His numbers have been declining the last 3 years....With out seeing the rest of your keepers...hard to say whether to keep him or not.... :-?

Yeah keep these guys. Ichiro is good,but these guys are better.

By the way if you think about it Ichiro's numbers last year were better than his numbers the year before.
