If/When the Yankees and Ichiro Suzuki hammer out this newest contract for the 2013 season and maybe beyond he would have turned down a significant offer from the Philadelphia Phillies. According to a plethora of twitter sources the Phillies had a two year deal worth $15 million on the table to keep Ichiro in Philly until he turns 41 years old. Why do we care? Makes you wonder what the Yankees offer is and all but cements the fact that Ichiro will be here in 2014. Ichiro = Austerity?
