I don't get this move at all though. Ichiro is well past his prime (not as bad as Matusi) and why trade with Seattle after the Pineda mess?
i get the trade an OF who still has some speed and is not bad defensively for some minor leaguers that arent named betances and banuelos . its not a great trade but it isnt a bad one either. oh and he is still a base stealing threat as well
anyone that doesn't want Ichiro...how long do you want to trot out Ibanez and Jones everyday? Think you can play them forever? What happens when one of them breaks down...you want to try to get the division and go deep in the playoffs with AAA dreck in left field?
