    Yankees confident they can re-sign Ichiro, who wants to return

    Yankees confident they can re-sign Ichiro, who wants to return

    The Yankees are confident they can re-sign interntaional star Ichiro Suzuki after his very productive two-plus months in the Bronx.

    Ichiro's longtime agent Tony Attanasio told the New York Post Ichiro wants to return to the Yankees. New York expects to bring him back, but like some other aging greats, he'll have to take a significant cut from the $18 million he made last year. Ichiro is 39.

    The Yankees paid him only $2 million for the eight weeks he spent in the Bronx. He hit .322 as a Yankee with a .794 OPS after he hit .261 with a .642 OPS for Seattle.

    If Yankees don't trade for an outfielder, Ichiro will replace Swisher in RF, with Gardner and Granderson in LF and CF.

    I have been critical of Cashman however this was a terrific pick up and he deserves credit for this move last year. I like the idea of those three in the outfield, all can play center really, should cover a tremendous amout of ground and provide great outfield defense. Now if we could only hit a little bit in the playoffs . . . .
