    If Ichiro would just try getting a few walks instead of grounding out, I think that he could set the table nicely. This "single or nothing" mentality is killing me, especially when we get nothing.

    Three games into his Yankee career and his approach is already pissing Brad off.

    Kudos for his first Yankee homer. But, I love this old wives' tale that Ichiro can hit a homer at will, but prefers to remain true to his game. Does that mean that he intentionally stays off the bases 72% of the time? Must be an honor thing.

    It's kind of like when people say Gardner has HR power as well but only shows it during BP cause it isn't his game. It's funny because why wouldn't a player want to be able to hit a homer if he's capable? Not only does it help the team greatly by having a multi-threat player but it also can fatten that player's wallet by having another tool to bank on.

    It's just their nice way of saying that he's incapable of doing so, and there's nothing wrong with that. Not everyone is a HR hitter.

    Purely conjecture, but maybe that's just not how they've ever played, and if they tried, it would throw off their hitting.

    Ichiro! is a reallly really special case. He lives for the opp field sinking LD singles/doubles into the gap.

    As for Gardner, I've been saying for like 2 years he needs to get his entire body into the swing. He doesn't have Ichiro!'s bat control (who does? maybe Trout) and his BABIP will be mostly LD% driven.

    But whenever he struggles even a little bit, he starts opening up his hip early and leaning toward 1st base trying to beat out a single. It's counterproductive but it's what he does.

    I was half paying attention to the dynamic duo last night but I swear Johnny kept saying the score was 2-1 Orioles after the Ibanez's home run.

    That would have been a better home run call than the one Sterling used.

    9 game hit streak.

    No walks, but no K's.

    Interesting case this Ichiro! is.

    Watch him get 1 hit in 57 straight games.

    Re: 2012 Ichiro Performance Thread

    I'd sign up for that on the basis that some might be for extra bases. So far, he has nine hits which have lead to 3 runs. Given where in the lineup he's hitting, runs are going to be a decent (but not perfect) way of judging him from this point forward.

    ^ not really, re: how to judge his offensive play (obviously he's here for his defense, in the big picture).

    say he puts up a sub .310 OBP for the rest of the year -- his runs scored tally will be more of an indicator of Nix/Martin/Jeter/Granderson getting timely hits than of his still sub .310 OBP performance.

    I just enjoy watching him play, especially his fielding. So smooth.

    I said decent, not perfect. The more runs he scores, the more he's on base and the more he's helping this team.

    Re: 2012 Ichiro Performance Thread

    what if Ichiro goes on a hot streak and is getting on base (mostly probably by hits) at a .350+ clip and Nix/Martin/Jeter/Granderson just don't come up with timely hits to drive him in? his runs scored tally isn't going to be very high... should we hold that against him?

    to be honest, it's not even a decent method; it's a poor one.

    He seems to hit an inordinate amount of liners right to fielders.

    Ok, I'm only looking at how he helps the team and getting runs will be a good judge of that.

    10 game hit streak
    sounds pretty good till you realize it's been 1 hit per game, 9 were singles (1hr) and zero walks
