    Huh? How are they not similar?

    I'm taking Fukudome. .400 OBP FTW.

    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.

    Ichiro is the ideal leadoff hitter in MLB & a GG OF'er every year. You can't beat that, unless you get 40+ HR's & 125+ RBI's every year, without hurting your team defensively.

    The ideal leadoff hitter either walks a little more or slugs higher

    I think you've confused Grady Sizemore and Ichiro Suzuki again.

    I am a Cubs fan.
    Fukudome SUCKS!
    He swings like Ichiro but can't hit like him.

    Sizemore strikes out an awful lot for a leadoff hitter though. And considering how much more Sizemore walks/hits for power, there isn't that much of a difference in the OPS+ (126 vs. 117 career)

    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.
