• How about that Ichiro!

    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.

    They should have traded him last year when he had value. They probably didn't because of marketing surveys that show his popularity as a homegrown "gritty"

    Yeah I mean I definitely see your side of the argument. It just would make no sense to me if they actually planned on sending Judge down to not come out

    With the solid spring that Judge has had both with the bat and glove, I would hate to see a platoon situation emerge, with Hicks, based upon left/right

    That's what makes this so hard to understand. You can understand not handing Judge RF based on the problems he had last season. But he is doing everything
