GranderK is bad, Ichiro is old. That would form a sub- par outfield Dan.

Granderson is not bad at all. Yes he strikes out a lot but he does give us power and speed.


He's hit 84 homeruns in 2 years. He stays. We need that power (.916 OPS / .811 OPS)


Ichiro hit .322 while with the Yankees. Yes he is old but he lengthens the lineup like Johnny Damon used to.


Ichiro's homerun totals also increased playing in Yankee stadium and he can hit anywhere in the lineup without complaint PLUS he is capable of laying down a bunt, stealing bases, and manufacturing runs via small play.


He also is a phenomenal defender and over the course of the season, you need that. Not to mention he is one of the most humble and well respected players in baseball who is desperately seeking a WS ring before his career is over.


If the Yankees bring back Ichiro and roll with Gardner, Granderson, Suzuki they will be fine and can win many ball games because of run prevention and defensive metrics alone not to mention the speed and average dynamic those 3 will bring to the lineup day in and day out.


Ichiro was revitalized in NY. I personally loved watching him play.




All the Yankees would need to do is acquire a right handed hitter of some sort because Ichi, Gardy, and Grandy are all left handed.

And bat Gardner 9th, Jeter lead-off and Ichiro 2nd.  That gives us a lefty-righty-lefty pattern utilizing three very capable lead-off quality hitters in a row.

I agree completely. Well said.  Hopefully Cashman (who acquired Ichiro) will bring him back.


He said he WANTS to return to NY. You can't pass up an opportunity like that. He is a Hall of Famer for a reason and FAR from finished after the display he put on while in pinstripes.

Yankees picked up the options of Granderson, Cano and Aardsma.. all pretty much no brainers.

Thanks for the update. Great news and definitely no brainers.


Yankees RHP Mark Montgomery is opening eyes in AFL he could be a bullpen piece for us in 2013.


Very live and stable arm, big bodied kid. I like his potential make up.

You know that and I know that and so do many other fans.  Let's hope Cashman feels the same.

Rumor is that Tim Lincecum could be traded from San Francisco.


Ellsbury and the Red Sox are being linked to this almost entirely.

Suzuki and Ibanez are two of Cashmans best moves as GM


Hopefully Itchy comes back as a 4th OF
