    Yankees acquire Ichiro from Mariners

    As per Jack Curry and RAB.

    @JackCurryYES: The Yankees have acquired Ichiro for DJ Mitchell and Danny Fahrquar, a source said. Yanks also get cash in deal

    The Yankees also save the travel costs to have him meet up with the team.
    Whatever you think...
    Well, you're wrong.

    is this a joke?

    Why would the Mariners want DJ Mitchell? Don't they need some hitting prospects at this point?

    Numark, it's legit. The Mariners think he is on the decline and didn't want to pay him his salary the next three years. Love the move by the Yankees!

    Ichiro waived his 10 and 5 rights and asked to be dealt to the Yankees? Also, tell me Cashman sent Pineda back for Noesi and Montero?

    Very interesting strike by Cashman to bring Ichiro to NY. Adds the outfield depth the Yanks were seeking and at modest price.

    I understand the logic behind it, i just viewed him as one of the few players that are attached to a team no matter what. He is on the decline but still a great player and this is a great trade for us

    He had an 86 OPS+ last year and an 83 OPS+ this year. Yikes. He has 3 years left on his contract?

    He is on the decline but considering who they gave up, that's a steal.

    He'll hit 15 HRs in Yankee Stadium this season.

    Well, you're wrong.

    Re: Yankees acquire Ichiro from Mariners

    Aside from the shocking news, he's pretty much crap these days and has been for a couple of years. Still, someone we can use this year...and for nothing.

    The cost was ridiculously minimal. I love the trade for that alone.

    I wonder how much of his salary the Nintendo's picked up?

    Well, you're wrong.

    Little give up but most likely little gained. Maybe we get lucky, I dunno.

    Seattle is also pitching in some cash I heard so that's that.

    He's league average against righties, garbage against lefties, but still has plus defense and speed.

    Maybe the change of scenery and a playoff run will invigorate him somehow.

    http://www.baseball-reference.com/pl...uzukic01.shtml says he's a free agent after this season.

    Re: Yankees acquire Ichiro from Mariners

    My concern is if Cashman considers him a replacement for Swisher in 2013.

    e. Nevermind. Ichiro's a FA after this year

    Picking up the tail end of a big contract for a guy who looks like he's on the way out. Someone convince why I should like this move?

    I'm thinking that this is a real possibility.

    Cashman strikes again. Now we need an Inchiro resurgence

    Wow, did NOT expect this. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.

    Ichiro is seriously declining but I still cant fault this trade.

    I love baseball in general and the Yankees just happen to be my favorite team since I knew what baseball was.
