In an interview with ESPNNY earlier in the week, Ichiro Suzuki said no way he is retiring after this season. The 40 year old Ichiro claimed that he hopes to play “many” more seasons. ”Not just a few,” he said. “Many. For me, I feel there’s no reason for me to retire right now.”

It only seemed fitting that when Derek Jeter retired, so too would Ichiro Suzuki . . . albeit it a little more quietly. Except that Ichiro has no plans of retirement, saying recently that,
“Retirement from baseball is something I haven’t even thought about.”

RIME OF THE FORMER MARINER
Amy Franz, the Mariners fan behind the "Ichimeter," a hit-counter that tracked Ichiro's hits at Mariners home games, received a thank you note and care package from Ichiro.
