Tired of stalled negotiations with the New York Yankees, Ichiro Suzuki is reaching out to other teams, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports:
Ichiro said to be reaching out to other teams now (philly could be one). Belief strong he badly wants to stay w/ NYY tho.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) December 2, 2012
Of course, Suzuki can "reach out" to whoever he wants and it doesn't mean the team wants him.
Here is why I do not see them a fit:
- Ichiro is 39 years old
- Ichiro is left-handed
- Ichiro does not play defense well anymore
Other than that, why not?
