Did you see this one coming? The headline: The Seattle Mariners have dealt their longest tenured MLB veteran and every day right fielder Ichiro to the Bronx Bombers. Word has just come down that long time future MLB Hall of Famer Ichiro Suzuki has been dealt to the New York Yankees. The strangest twist of this story is the fact that he’ll play right field tonight at Safeco Field for the NY Yankees and NOT the Seattle Mariners. Per Jack Curry YES twitter account. https://twitter.com/JackCurryYES/statuses/227523684905136128 At 38 years old and NOT in his prime the 2012 version of Ichiro is at best a reach. We’re hearing its Ichiro and cash to the Yankees for Mitchell and Farquhar. This move has been confirmed by Seattle Times – Mariners beat writer Geoff Baker.
Ichiro to Yankees is going to happen, I’ve been told — Geoff Baker (@gbakermariners) July 23, 2012
