The team is so adamant that Rivera won’t return to the mound this season that Yankees GM Brian Cashman called out a physical therapist of Rivera’s that said otherwise.

Impact: Ichiro in the Bronx

Apparently, the Yankees and Mariners both have ninjas for GMs, because the trade of Ichiro Suzuki to New York seemed to come out of nowhere. Ichiro still has a big name and a grand track record, but is he anything more than a defensive whiz at this point and can his move from spacious Safeco to the short porch in Yankee Stadium help his fantasy value? Ichiro has done next to nothing...
