Ichiro Suzuki left the Seattle Mariners this week but before that, he still had to play with the Seattle Mariners against the Kansas City Royals and the Tampa Bay Rays on the road. The Mariners were 3-1 against KC and 2-1 against the Rays. Some of the major highlights of the week included scoring 9 runs twice against the Royals, taking Tampa deep into 14 innings, breaking a 2-year, 9-game losing streak against the Rays, and Ichiro’s last word—his 2,533rd career hit.

Wezen-Ball: The Willie Mays Trade by Larry Granillo

Earlier this week, the Seattle Mariners traded their aging superstar Ichiro Suzuki to the New York Yankees for a couple of prospects.

Ichiro Suzuki, the broken crutch of terrible Seattle Mariners’ ownership

Seattle Mariners fans should feel what, about Ichiro Suzuki being traded? Now I know that he asked to be traded, but this dude was still the adopted hometown hero. You would think there would be some type of outrage toward the Mariners front office, especially since he was traded to a team who they were playing that night at home. However living in Seattle, I don’t get that feeling...
