ORIOLES COULD STEAL AWAY ICHIRO
Ichiro Suzuki is a free agent and to be honest with you, I don't care if the guys 41 or 61, I love Ichiro on our club. I love his approach to the game. I love his discipline and I just really enjoy watching the guy play. I do understand that his days in the Bronx are probably numbered though. We re-signed Chris Young and no doubt he will be our 4th outfielder. That being said, I love watching Ichiro in pinstripes and with 2844 hits, I would have loved to have seen him get 3000 in New York. I have a sneaking suspicion that's not in the cards though.
A report from Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says the Orioles are looking at Ichiro.
"Ichiro Suzki, the Japanese outfield sensation who's 41, is receiving some consideration from the Orioles.
Ichiro, who is hoping to play to reach the coveted 3,000 hits in Major League Baseball, is 156 hits short and looking for a job, and the Orioles seek another outfielder."
"Consideration" doesn't mean much. I guess technically you can say the Yanks are considering him too. That being said, it's a report and it needed to be posted here...
Let's see what happens
