Marlins could give Ichiro two year, Kyle Kendrick and Ryan Vogelsong drawling interest

Ichrio Suzuki is 156 hits shy of 3,000 during his major league career.

A year ago with the Yankees he totaled 102 hits in 359 at-bats for the Yankees. While Suzuki has received some scant interest on the free agent market, one team that could...

MLB Game Picks - Saturday: October 25, 2014
