Your guy was the WORST.
And that doesn't count the enormous fielding discrepancies.
Your argument of dumb azz stats is invalid in real life.
Hence, itchy is wearing pinstripes and swisher will live in Cleveland.
Thx for playing.
The only thing I like about itchy, is how he dances under the ball before he catches it, otherwise I find him to be annoying.
And itchy can hit all those bats with a baseball. Assuming u saw that commercial...
LOL!!! Ichiro is terrible !!!
I think I would rather have AJ for 2 years than Ichiro. To each his own. Still love me some Itchy!

You guys with the stats argument belittle others opinions like they are just plain wrong. That is uncalled for.
If stats were everything, why is Jeter our SS? His def stats blow. Why is itchy in RF? Oh.
I know that I see certain players help a team win by more than stats. And those are the guys I prefer.
Itchy is one of those guys. Intangibles. Smart. Speedy. Gold glove. Contact hitter. Swisher is a pure stat. This many hr. this many rbi. Nothing more. Nothing added.
Hence, my opinion.
As for Jeter being our shortstop, he shouldn't be at this point in his career. He makes routine plays and plays where he has to charge in fine, but moving laterally is a HUGE weakness of his.
