The consensus seems to be Crawford, but I love Ichiro's average. I personally like to draft for average in a 5x5 league, even for my sluggers, so I lean towards Ichiro.

Interestingly enough I just read an article comparing Ichiro, Crawford and Pierre today. Harmon says to take Crawford too. Here is a link:

thats a toughy.. ichiro def has the avg and has some pop behind him in the lineup.. but crawford is a better steal guy who also gives hr.. thats a tough desiscion... and i saw crawford go 4th overall in an expert draft..

Ichiro all the way.

He will lead the league in BA again, will lead the league in AB again. With Beltre and the Big Sexy hitting behind him now I also think that he will lead the league in runs. He will also get more steals this year. He will be average in RBI and the only down cat will be HR but he will still hit double digit HR. I predict that Ichiro will end the year as a top 3 hitter in 5x5 fantasy (not that I would draft him there because he can be gotten much lower).

You'll find that "expert" is a very, very loose term in fantasy baseball. I can think of way too many "experts" that are just continually wrong.

And Crawford is my pick. And its because Ichiro is asian lesgrant and wr ;-7

I would rather have Ichiro in league for this year but in a keeper I would go with Crawford.
