    Ichiro v. Fukudome

    Comparison that popped into my head today at work.

    Who would you rather have?

    Just checking now, they've both posted 118 OPS+ in their careers (with Ichiro's OBVIOUSLY being a longer career).

    That said, Ichiro is 34, Fukudome is 31. Who do you want right now? For the next 5 years?

    I think you have to grant 'career' to Ichiro, but if you feel otherwise, feel free to say so.

    Ichiro because he's more proven. Ichiro has done it for a while now, while Fukudome has only done it for half a season. I know they both did it in Japan, but:
    1. Japan and MLB are completely different.
    2. I don't watch Japanese baseball, so they never proved anything to me when they played in Japan.

    Ichiro without a doubt. He has numbers that Fukudome will never have.

    That's probably the way I'm thinking, too.

    Ichiro over the next 5 years will (Likely) decline. Fukodome is still just 31, so over the next 5 years, he's not going to be far out of his prime.

    Over their careers, of course, you must take Ichiro.

    I'll take Fukudome. He does more things that I like. Both have shown they can hit in the .300 range (Ichiro being the much higher average hitter) but Fukudome walks a lot more. I like his approach at the plate more. And the answer for who you want five years from now is obviously Fukudome.

    Ichiro, even though he's older than Fukudome. He has been one of the best players since he came into the league.
