Oh Ichiro!

An interesting article from that discusses the state of Ichiro!  He certainly hasn't been the Ichiro! that we've come to, dare I say it, take for granted in Seattle for the last 10 years.  His numbers are down - 200 hits seems to be a rather remote possibility at this point.  I'm not counting him out - but what are the odds that he comes back next year looking like before?

So Long Erik Bedard

Geoff Baker over at the Times chronicles the end of the Bavasi/Bedard era in Seattle.  Yay.

The awesome Larry Stone points out that the M's could still be active in the trade market in August.

I'm happy that the Mariners ended up as sellers at the NWTD.  Looks like some interesting guys have been acquired - now it's all about next year.  And oh yeah, Dustin Ackley rocks!!
