    "Its not your money" was fine to say when the Yankees would spend whatever to fill holes. Now that they are pinching pennies and saying stuff like "beggars can't be choosers" its a real issue to talk about how much they give guys. Especially 40 year olds on 2 year deals.

    This sounds very Yankee like too. Give him 2 years so he gets his 3,000th hit as a Yankee. Never mind the fact he's 400 hits away. I guess they still learned nothing from the ARod deal.

    Well in 2 years when he's 100 hits short we can simply give him another 2 year deal....

    Yeah hold on a sec while I get mad that the team resigned a player that actually performed in the post season. Get a grip people.

    This doesn’t make sense at all. I won't be thrilled if he's receiving 2 years at the rumored range of $12-14 million. Ichiro is an exciting player and would make for a phenomenal 4th outfielder/pinch runner type for us but 2 years and at that salary range? And for a 39 year old who is reliant on the running game for the majority of his production? Plus we already have 2 lefty hitting starting outfielders already in Granderson and Gardner. Can’t say I’m ecstatic about this unless it’s for a VERY low base salary each season…but so far that doesn't seem to be the case.

    If his salary approaches anything near what Martin’s new contract pays him I will be very upset. I thought it was mostly the second year that caused the Yankees to hesitate on signing Martin but they’ll be giving Ichiro that second year for just about the same salary…it just doesn’t make sense to me unless he will be getting paid substantially less than what Martin is. Martin provides more offense for a lineup that figures to have a drop-off in production next season and is in his prime so he is more of a sure thing. Plus he's one of the best pitch framers in the entire sport and is a great clubhouse guy by all accounts. Just look at the barren catcher's market right now. It's either sign overpriced garbage or give up very valuable assets in a trade since good catchers are few and far between nowadays. According to the salary rumors, the contracts will pretty much be a wash so I feel like the Yankees made a bad decision by spending their resources on Ichiro instead of Martin.
    Martin provides more offense? Martin might be able to hit 15-20 home runs for you, but outside of this what kind of offense does a .200 hitter give you?
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect.

    Hopefully the 2 year deal for Raul is coming next since he was our best hitter in the postseason.

    Considering that the yankees have virtually no one that can perform in the post season with the exception of Jeter and Ichiro, it's probably a good idea to give Raul a 2 year deal.

    I hope it's not a two year deal.

    If this is a two year deal I'm going to lose my ****. It just goes to show that current ownership is all about the money. They give Ichiro what he wants and receive the dividends of pleasing the asian market while the team plummets in the standings. Say goodbye to granderson folks. Austerity! Austerity! Austerity! Austerity! Austerity! Austerity! Austerity! Austerity! Austerity! Austerity! Austerity! Austerity! Austerity!

    Noooo....

    The reports are the yankees are looking to pay him for 2 years at 6-7 million a year for a total of 12-14 million.

    They are deciding on going with, 1 year with 2nd year option..or 2 years.

    Ahhhhhh.thanks. That makes more sense. Still a lot but the ItchMan is worth it given his marketing value.
