Is that enough exclamation points?!!??
Seriously though, I’m floored. Imagine that Somebodies such as Tony Gwynn or Barry Larkin had experienced a late career trade — I was absolutely convinced Ichiro would retire, from American Baseball at least, as a Mariner. I’m about equally as surprised that Ichiro requested the trade himself, and that it was months ago.
And to the Yankees no less. Yeesh.
