6x6, minus AVG, plus OBP and SLG. Weekly change (ugh).
Utley just came off the DL, so I'm OK for 2B atm. I'd been starting Uggla all this time, and he's been absolutely killing me. Completely stunned at how bad he's been. My OF has been poor-to-decent so far: we start three, and I've been going with a core of
Stanton (hurt early, OK now)
Cargo (complete zero, started to turn it around recently)
Markakis (another dud, but has been playing OK enough to start the last couple weeks)
Backups in the OF are
Damon (he's been pretty good, but I was spooked into not starting him these last couple weeks because of interleague play)
Chris Young (despite what his numbers look like, has been very inconsistent. Not good for weekly change)
Grady Sizemore (always hurt. Tough to commit to starting him in weekly).
So I'm not starving for another OF, and I've always thought Ichiro was more of a "name" than an actual fantasy asset. The biggest plus he brings to the table, AVG, we don't count in the league. I guess the SB are nice, but if I acquired him, it would be to immediately try and cash in on his name recognition for something else (I'm also hurting for 1B, thank you Justin Morneau. Why yes, I'd love to have another 0/4 with three K's!). Ichiro also has been slumping of late, but that's his MO. He usually gets hot early, swoons in May, June or July, and then evens off for the last couple months.
Anyway, long post is long. Leave link, etc.
