    I agree that he will likely make the Yankees a bit more money from jersey/merchandise sales and a bit from the Japanese media/fans coming to some of the games. The question is this: will the Yankees actually look to invest some of that money in other areas of the team? Otherwise what good is it to us as fans for Ichiro to make the Yankees more money without it affecting the roster in any meaningful way?

    I think the Yankees will pocket the extra money rather than reinvest it but I could be wrong, and I hope I'm wrong.

    Anyone can play at an all star level if your projections are derived from a 2 month sample size in a very hitter friendly stadium for lefties. I disagree with that projection, however, for reasons I've stated over the last 2 or 3 pages which you can look over if you care.

    This isn't 2005 and there's no reason to believe that going forward Ichiro will be able to reverse the downward spiral that his career path has been trending. And assuming that he'll find that good old "fountain of youth" is just plain irresponsible.

I'd rather let Dickerson roam RF than have Cervelli catching if everything else is equal.
    But in the end, Ichiro generates more $$$ back to the Yankees. As they say, this is a business.

    I hope he does as well. But these numbers from last season - while he was with the Yankees - are not exactly reassuring:

    117 ABs at Yankee Stadium - .358/.380/.564

    109 ABs on the road with the Yankees - .284/.318/.339

    At the end of the day I think we'll get an Ichiro that is somewhere between the crappy Ichiro of the last 2 seasons with the Mariners and the good Ichiro that showed up from the last 2 months of the season in 2012. Basically a good 4th outfielder on a playoff caliber team which I would assume the Yankees are. Unless, of course, you choose to never play him on the road which will ultimately pigeon-hole him into a reserve role anyway.

    Oh, I agree with everything you're saying and I know his road numbers aren't that stellar, but if he can give us .300/.330 or so...I guess that can suffice. Not a huge fan of it, but it is what it is.

    Yeah I can live with him hitting sometime like .285/.335/.375 or so. I would prefer this production to come from the bench/4th outfielder/reserve player role. If this production comes from him in a starting role, there must be significant upgrades in other positions. The problem is, they will be paying him like a starter (so I think they will start him) and that money he'll be making the next two seasons may inhibit the team from acquiring that player that can represent an upgrade at one of the other positions.

    I am completely on board with this signing if they limit him to that bench/4th outfielder/pinch runner role OR if they start him and swing a big trade or make a major signing (don't really see many realistic FA fits out there besides...Swisher) to improve those other areas.

    As Ichiro signs with the Yankees, he'll be turning down a two-year, $14 million offer from the Phillies.

    If he turns down that 2 year offer from the Phillies to sign a 1 year offer from the Yankees I will be very, very happy.
