    Yeah, where are you hearing this...it's not on MLBTR.

    That would be a jaw-dropper, too.

    Where did that come from? I'd be interested to see what that cost them.

    Hitting .261 this season. I can only assume that's going to improve in his new lineup.

    Ichiro has a .288 OBP in 423 at bats this season. He's one of the worst hitters in baseball.

    Re: Yankees Get Ichiro

    W...T...F?! This came out of nowhere. The Mariners didn't even get good prospects in return. Maybe this is their way of making up for dealing the Yankees damaged goods in Pineda?

    Re: Yankees Get Ichiro

    Meh. Even if this is true, the Yankees still haven't addressed their biggest weakness - pitching. Sabathia is a lame duck in the playoffs and he's their best pitcher. Besides, Minnesota won't be in the playoffs for them to beat up on.

    Ichiro will definitely see worse pitching, so his AVG might pick up some; only TB in the AL East (and the Yanks) can match the pitching of Oakland, Texas, and the Angels.

    Not surprised he was moved (there have been a lot of grumblings the last couple of seasons and he was likely not going to be locked into another long-term contract soon), but shocked that it was the Yanks. Cashman basically said they were holding pat at the deadline.
