Postby eatyun » Thu Mar 21, 2013 3:24 pm

Yep, stick with the young guy and don't go for the household name. He's 39, y'know.

I know that i just Second Guessed myself because of this from cbs sports

chiro Suzuki had a very interesting 2012. Stuck on a Seattle team that was going nowhere, Suzuki, batting .261 in 402 at-bats, was traded to the Yankees just before the trade deadline. He became a different player in 67 games for New York -- or, to be more precise, he became the Ichiro of old. A .322 average, 13 doubles, five home runs and 14 steals in 227 at-bats. Over a full season, those stats would have put him back at over 200 hits (2011 was the first time in his major league career he didn't reach that number), with about 14 home runs and 40 steals. With Suzuki bailing on the World Baseball Classic, the 39-year old should be fresh for the 2013 season. And with the Yankees deciding to re-sign him, don't be surprised if you see Suzuki have another vintage year, with a possible boost in power numbers thanks to Yankee Stadium's short right-field porch -- five of Suzuki's nine home runs came at Yankee Stadium last season. There's talk of a platoon, but we're treating Suzuki as a full-time player for now; even at 39, he's still a threat for 190-200 hits and a good amount of steals. This makes Suzuki a bargain in the later rounds of drafts. (Updated 1/2/13)

Oh yes, the CBS update. Those are a solid enough read and certainly give the impression that you shouldn't forget about Ichiro in the late rounds. I just think that De Aza would be a smarter grab a little earlier than Ichiro. They have similar skills, but you will more likely get the stats you wish for in De Aza than the dependence on a continued late resurgence from last year by Ichiro.

A month ago I probably would have said Ichiro, but with all the offense on in NY sitting on the DL I think I'd go De Aza here and not feel bad. ;-D
