Immediately following their collapse in the ALCS, speculation was that the New York Yankees were planning on blowing up the team and starting anew.Now, it's too early to know if the Yankees are going to do that or not, but acording to a New York Post report, one veteran is hoping to return to the Bronx Bombers.Ichiro Suzuki has been telling those close to him that "he so enjoyed playing in a professional, winning atmosphere with so many contemporaries near his age range" and that a one-year deal, perhaps with an option, in the $5 million-to-$8 million range might be enough to keep him in pinstripes.You'll remember, the Japanese superstar was sent to the Big Apple from the Seattle Mariners back in July.  In 67 games with the Yankees, he hit .322 while spending time at all three outfielder positions.The 39-year-old 2001 American League MVP is a free agent and will enter 2013 fourth on the active hits list with 2606.

  • I wouldn't mind seeing him back, he's in better shape than many rookies and players with less than 10 years in the majors. Just look at some of the overweight stars in the World Series, like Prince Fielder, Miquel Cabrerra and The Kung Fu Panda. He can take over rightfield since I don't see the Yankees giving Swisher what he'll ask as a free agent. Gardner will be back in left and Granderson, while he had a horrible post season will be back in center. It's not easy to find a 40 homer 100+ RBI guy these days.
