    When the New York Yankees acquired Ichiro Suzuki from the Seattle Mariners in a trade, I wrote here that the trade was a smart move and could even be a brilliant move. As I stated there and in future posts, if Ichiro could hit .300 for the Yankees, he would certainly help them. That initial post provoked a strong negative comment which really shook the confidence in what I had written. Yes, folks, I do read your comments and they are not taken lightly. And there were times when Ichiro did not perform well at the plate and looked like a 39 year old shell of his former self. Two games yesterday sure changed some of that thought process. Upon further review, with a fourteen games left in the season, the trade is looking pretty darned good at the moment.

    When the 2012 season was just opening, you may remember I thought the outlook for the Trenton Thunder was not particularly good. After a disappointing 2011, Trenton looked to have many of the same faces, with the bulk of the Yankees’ best prospects slated to spend the year in Single-A and the loss of some of their big pitchers to Empire State. Boy was I wrong. Trenton put together a very strong 2012 season, and as those key prospects will be working their way up the next couple years, they could be in for a few good years. The Thunder went 79-63, winning the Eastern Division in the Eastern League and securing a playoff spot. They beat the Reading Phillies in the first round, but lost to the strong pitching of the Akron Aeros in the Finals.
