Looking at Ichiro's pre/post All-Star Break AVG.

Postby T-Bone Costanza » Wed Jun 30, 2004 1:23 pm

2002 Pre-All Star Break: .357, 22 SB
2002 Post-All Star Break: .280, 9 SB

2003 Pre-All Star Break: .352, 25 SB
2003 Post-All Star Break: .259, 9 SB

Anyone see any reason this trend won't continue? Especially considering Seattle is much worse on the whole than '02-'03. My team's average is already feeling the dropoff with a nasty 1-for-7 the other night and various 0-fers. Steals are OK, but the next guy is 20 behind me so I'm looking to deal him for power.

Just thought I would bring these startling dropoffs to the Cafe's attention.

He is up there with LoDuca in terms of second half swoons. Unfortunately, this is becoming pretty common knowledge as far as I can tell, so you might get less than you think for him.

If I stick with the All-Star Break theory, I would hope to be able to get a great second-halfer like Huff. ESPN has him Ichiro going in 1-for-1's for Griffey, Burrell, and someone was able to get Berkman.

I would trade in a second if that's what you can get. I had him on my team last year, and the second half slide had me pulling my hair out.
