Ichiro Updates

Some updates regarding the signing of Ichiro Suzuki...

Earlier today Joel Sherman tweeted that the Yankees were going to have to offer Ichiro two years, due to the fact that the Phillies had offered two years already. Personally I'm not crazy about that, as I didn't even want the Yankees to bring Suzuki back in the first place, but it's far from the only decision the team has made recently involving it's roster that I didn't like.

About an hour later Jon Heyman tweeted that the deal would be worth between $12 and $13 million. I really don't think Ichiro is an everyday player any more, nor do I think he'll put up similar numbers to the .322/.340/.454 we saw after the Yankees dealt for him, so $6-$6.5 million for a part-timer seems a bit much.
