Is Raul Ibanez on Your Fantasy Team?

How many "U's" are in Rauuuuul Ibanez's name?  It depends.

"Sometimes five, sometimes seven," he told a San Diego Padres catcher in a Mariners commercial.

Raul Ibanez had yet another solid year. A hundred RBI, nearly 200 hits, and a .293 batting average.  He is 36, and a solid pro who has played just 12 years of hardball, and may still have juice in him.

Today, the Mariners offered him a contract. Many teams could use the valuable lefty bat in their lineups. Could you use him on your fantasy team?

Most likely, wherever Raul lands, he will have another good year, a hundred RBI, 30 homers, and a .290 average, depending on playing time. He also shows a lot of maturity at the plate, which for those of you who are going young, that maturity and leadership is a valuable asset.

Yankee, Cub, or Mariner, five U's or seven, he is a great addition to any fantasy team.
