Ichiro Suzuki’s agent came out this week saying that Ichiro prefers to stay with the Yankees. Ichiro had a bit of a resurgence once he put on the pinstripes.
My feelings are mixed. I love Ichiro. He’s always been one of my favorite (if not my #1 favorite) non-Yankees players. I wouldn’t mind him back in the least.
I don’t feel comfortable with a team that may have a 39 (in June) year old starting SS (Jeter), a 38 year old (July) starting 3B (A-Rod), a 39 year old starting OF (Ichiro), a 41 year old (June) starting DH (Ibanez), a 35 year old utility infielder (Chavez), a 38 (Feb). year old starter (Kuroda), a 41 (June) year old starter (Pettitte) and a 43 year old (this week) closer (Mo.)
