2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections


Ichiro Suzuki OF Seattle Mariners

We're at the point where fantasy managers' blind faith to Ichiro Suzuki is approaching harmful. Ichiro, 37, has experienced steady decay of his of once highly dependable LD%. His H% has slowly been suffering along with it. We're near the point where "luck" is starting to mean something for Ichiro. More importantly, the LH hitter is at an age when decline in speed is advanced. How long will Ichiro's infield hit percentage remain so high? He doesn't draw BB regularly. Last year, he posted an uncharacteristically high rate of SBA relative to his SBO. And let's not ignore the substandard men Seattle asks to drive him in. Ichiro is extremely reliable. He's in great shape. He won't sink into the Pacific. But he's not a high-end source of BA and thefts anymore.
