Ichiro Traded


In case you were just awoken from a mid day nap by your wife, as I was, Ichiro Suzuki was just traded to the Yankees. Mariners recieve two 25 year old pitchers in return. A proper goodbye to come soon.

Right off the bat reaction? This is the right move for the organization. Even Ichiro recognized it. And while I could pick nearly any other organization I would rather see him with, such is life and at least now Ichiro will receive a shot to compete in the World Series.

It is going to be a strange feeling come 7:00 pm watching Ichiro suit up for another team. Strange indeed.
