Yankees Finalize Deal With Ichiro
It appears that the Ichiro signing is officially official. Although the terms of the deal have not been disclosed, reports have indicated that it was for money, paid in the form of US currency. This locks down right field for the next couple years, which makes the outfield all-lefty leaning. An all-lefty outfield has been Cashman's dream since he was a child, and its great to see him achieve his life's ambition. To ensure his all-lefty outfield is not polluted by a right-hander, Cashman is also in talks with outfield/DH option Raul Ibanez. The 2013 Yankees are shaping up to be like the 2012 Yankees only 1 year older, and missing key contributors in Nick Swisher, and Russell Martin. Should be really exciting!
