Ichiro?

Postby CadensDad » Thu Jun 16, 2011 7:45 pm

He has been a keeper of mine for four years now. But he is getting up there in age, with the deadline coming soon I am trying to sell on some guys and grab some draft picks. Is his stock going to rise any or what? What is the deal in Sea?

Ichiro isn't being helped by the lineup in Seattle, for sure, but he is having the worst slump of his career right now, and I am certain he is about to break out if it. I just traded Andre Eithier to get him. Fairly equal deal IMO, but I needed a little more speed.

His value is low right now, and may rise only slightly higher. There are just too many people who have decided that he is at the end of his run of greatness. I think this is a mistake, but I believe I am in the minority.

He's 10 for his last 25 with 4 steals. Things may be looking up. One month from now he could be pushing 0.300 again.

I agree he's not done, but Andre Ethier for him... that's way too much.

I'm with you kaiser. Though I don't think Ichiro is what he once was, I could see him hitting .300 or so from here on out with a lot of SB and decent run totals. A guy I would certainly buy low.

Ichiro is definitely a guy I'd like to buy low if I needed some OF help. There's simply no way he hits under .300 this season and I'd expect him to rebound to his other-worldly normality. He's not who he was 3-5 years ago, but he's still Ichiro.
That said, as a keeper I might try and move him for some youth if I could. It all depends on your league really...

Your opinion is duly noted. Considering that I need speed, and this is a non-keeper league, I am more than happy with the deal.

Well I'm not in the top 5 in this league, I am going to be lucky to finish like 7th/8th. So I am trying to grab some draft picks for next year and some young players to keep as keepers. I am not sure if I want to sell on him now or later though.

I moved him for Castro, hoping the young guy keeps it up
