I think ichiro is overrated because he can only deliver 3 categories and superior to granderson in two-(steals & avg), and so I voted for granderson because he has more upside overall dispersed through 5 categories.

Granderson has legit 30 HR potential hitting at the top of one of baseball's best lineups? He's an easy choice here and should have gone in front of Rios.

Granderson

Curtis Granderson only swiped 12 bases in 2008, and manager Jim Leyland is going to talk to him about being more aggressive this season, according to the Detroit News. Leyland said, "Some of that is my fault, not ordering the steal. But I think he is probably a little too tense. He needs to be a bit more relaxed over there."

Granderson over Abreu, I like the help in all 5 cats and the potential.

I'm hesitant in going for Ichiro, I don't like having to make up the RBI/HR loss from my 2nd OF slot.

I went with Abreau. He still helps in 5 categories. I almost went with Granderson. Ichiro's weak team hurts his value. Solid in 3 categories only.
