Just curious how many SB you all have projected for Ichiro this season. The M's don't seem to let him loose as much as I think they should. What should we expect from him this year.

01 - 56
02 - 31
03 - 32
04 - 36
05 - 33

I guess we could say mid 30's, but with teh M's offense hurting so much and them not having much offensive power at all after the 5 spot will the M's use his speed to create some opportunities.

28-32

I have him projected for .320 (in 700 ABs) 120 15 70 30 which actually gives him 1st round position-adjusted value. Ichiro has become underrated, a year removed from his career year. Those numbers are the value equivalent of the prototypical .300 110 30 110 15 monster (David Wright anyone?) and OF is middle of the pack in terms of position scarcity. He's usually going in the 2nd which makes him undervalued.

Well see my question was more the "will the M's turn him loose more now that thier offense is horrible?" and less the actual number of stolen bases he gets.

30

He slowed down in the second half last year and he is on the wrong side of 30. But Ichiro is a stats oriented guy so he'll make sure to snag 30 bags.

110/12/60/30/.330
