Ichiro vs. Ellsbury

Postby skjelstrom » Mon Mar 28, 2011 10:24 pm

I'm thinking of making this trade as I'm not a big fan of Ichiro and it autodrafted him when my internet cut out during my draft.

I give: Ichiro Suzuki, Francisco Liriano
I get: Jacoby Ellsbury, Justin Verlander


I don't know if it would go through, but I could try. My biggest problem with this is I have both Mark Reynolds and Dan Uggla on my team. Its not a HUGE deal because we count Hits instead of Average as a stat. But that being said Ichiro would help with Hits A LOT more than Ellsbury.... I REALLY like Verlander though. Should I do this considering the Hits Ichiro would help me make up??

I would.

I think J.Ellsbury is going to have a good year. Ellsbury hits in a superior lineup. He is also younger.

The 2 pitchers are a wash. Might lean towards the Verlander side more.

I like this deal for you. I like Verlander more than Liriano and Ellsbury might not be as good as Ichiro but he is younger on a good team which should give him plenty of counting stats.

It will give Ellsbury more counting stats but do you think the extra 40 or more hits that I'd get from Ichiro would help balance my Reynolds and Uggla?

I don't know why but that is the one thing holding me back on this deal...

I like the youth on his side plus I think Verlander could come up big thus year.

It is not going to be easy to replace what you get out of Ichiro but that is assuming that Ichiro stays at his normal pace. There is going to be a time where Ichiro doesn't get that many hits and I would rather not be owning him when that time comes.
