It’s official: Ichiro is back

Word of this deal has been around for a week or so, but today the Yankees officially announced that they have reached an agreement with outfielder Ichiro Suzuki to return to the team in 2013 and 2014. The 39 year old Ichiro will indeed be getting a two year contract that will pay him a $6.5 million salary in both 2013 and 2014, for a total of $13 million. One of the best contact hitters in recent memory, Ichiro is just 394 hits shy of 3,000 in his MLB career, despite getting a late start in the states due to beginning his career in his native Japan.

      Perhaps I'm being an optimist, but I read this post as being satirical. Kudos to you.

    For a moment there, I thought I had mistakenly logged onto the MLB or ESPN websites and was looking at posts from their "fan base." Noooooooooooooooooooo…!
