Ichiro the Slugger?
Dan Bode 02-22-2012
With Ichiro moving to the 3rd spot in the batting order will he change his approach? Hopefully he will look to drive the ball more and stop slapping at it. I like guys on base in front of him because he always makes contact, and with Figgins and Ackley both with speed, It could work well. One thing is for sure no one will hit less HR's. I like Montero, Carp, Smoke 4,5,6. Ichiro will rebound in his contract season, look for him to get back to .300 batting average and drive in a few more runs.
