Did Ichiro Just Diss the New York Yankees?

As we learned earlier in the week the Miami Marlins lured former New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners player Ichiro Suzuki with a one year deal worth $2 million plus a load of incentives. Miami, as we learned yesterday on the blog, actually flew all the way out to Ichiro’s native Japan to introduce the 41 year old in a press conference. During that press conference Ichiro was quoted as saying the following:

"When I met (Miami) team executives yesterday, I felt incredible enthusiasm," Suzuki said at a press conference on Thursday. "So I wanted to respond to their enthusiasm and I believe that is something I have been looking for the last two years."

 Did Ichiro just diss the New York Yankees? Ichiro has been with the Yankees the last two years as he was earning a cool $13 million. I am not sure if I am simply reading too much into the comment and he is speaking of HIS enthusiasm lacking in New York or if that was a little jab against the Yankees organization.

What say you?
