It's funny... I didn't think this would be a legit comp. when we signed Fuku but his power hasn't really showed yet. He could potentially be a 900 OPS guy, unlike Ichiro. He tries to pull a lot of pitches outside and I think if he started going with them he'd increase his slg a bit.
Depends on what you value.

And as for the comparison, I'll take Ichiro. Ichiro's just now got his AVG up over .300, and that's likely to go up. He's been hitting better lately, and Fukudome's slipped a little bit. Right now the difference in OPS+ is only 6 points in Fuku's favor, so I don't think it'll be that long before Ichiro overtakes him.
Fukudome is a very good ballplayer, but I have to say Ichiro because he has been a hit freak since coming to the MLB in '01. He has proven to be one of the best contact hitters in the game, if not the best.
