    Ichiro is coming back to Seattle.

    USA Today and ESPN report the Mariners are working on a 1-year deal for Ichiro.
    Great news for M's fans (and Ichiro fans like me) who were hoping he'd end his career in Seattle.
    Ichiro says he wants to play until he's 50, but this will probably end up being his farewell tour at age 44.

    This means that there's a chance that Ohtani will face Ichiro at some point...

    I was excited to hear this last night. He deserves a send off for his last year in MLB like other players have had in the past. Not getting signed by a team and just going back to Japan to try and play really didn't sit well with me. Going back to Safeco is a great way to end his career here in the U.S.!!

    I wonder how much playing time he will get. Seattle OF rankings (imo)

    1. Mitch Haniger (RF)
    2. Dee Gordon (CF)
    3. Ben Gamel (LF)
    4. Guillermo Heredia
    5. Taylor Motter (UT)
    6. Nelson Cruz (#1 in NL games)

    Its sad when a guy like Motter is better than Ichiro but I think it will happen this year.

    If the team is as hurt as they were last year he should be able to play 150 or so games.

    He'll probably play about 80 to 90 games. Best regards, David PS glad to see him with the mariners again.
