Examining the M's: Ichiro is heating up
I own Ichiro in two leagues, one in which I have batting average and stolen bases pretty much figured out - thank you, Matt Kemp! - and had a trade offer for a pitcher I needed. I still declined the offer. Today, five consecutive multi-hit games and 21 batting average points later, with four stolen bases along the way, I'm pleased. You might be thinking, so what, I should have traded from excess anyway. But I view it as now I can get a better pitcher in a trade, or keep Ichiro and move someone else.
