Gretzky's Mullet

The MLB thread

Speechless. No wait, I'm not. Big middle finger to Jack Z and that pathetic organization and I guess Go Yankees (for Ichiro's sake). After the Dodgers of course.

I love Ichiro and all, but no way am I going to cheer for the Yankees, just so Ichiro can get his ring. Similar to Nash on the Lakers. I just can't bring myself to cheer for the Lakers no matter who is on the team.

Was gonna edit my last post, but wanted to show my wave of emotion. Hahaha.

It's what's best for Ichiro and the M's. I was just angry when I read it. Here's hoping these two prospects help turn around a crap franchise.

Wow Ichiro traded to the Evil Empire. Reports are he requested a trade 2 weeks ago.

Thanks for the memories and the all time single season hits record.

As much as it pains me to say this........ Good luck with the Yankees.

Man do the M's ever need a rebuild. Where's Edgar Martinez when you need him?

2 Pitchers

1 whos struggling in AAA and 1 who was picked up by the Yankees through Waivers...

We couldve gotten more. It was a big cap dump but still at least better prospects

I thought the M's needed offense as well. Remembered watching one game where the commentator said that King Felix had difficulties getting wins (and he basically is their only legit competent star starting pitcher) because he didn't get enough run support. Sure, having good pitching would help but even with this trade I'm not sure what the M's got.

Queue Felix leaving?

Jack Z hasn't quite lived up to his hype, eh Johnny? I guess compared to Bill Bavasi he's put a younger and cheaper group of underachievers out there to finish last. Plus he hasn't traded away Felix Hernandez yet.

For the record, as popular as Ichiro's been, he is having a very bad season, and he had a really bad season last year, and he's a far cry from the player he was 5 years ago. However, I think anyone who likes the Mariners has to be a little sad about this turn of events.

Until the Mariners stack their system with real talent they are going no where. Well at least Ichiro get's a chance at a ring.

Well, I understand not getting a ton back for Ichiro, being that he is a declining 39 year old free agent-to-be having his worst ever season. He has almost no power, though that's more because he's too stubborn to swing conventionally in RBI situations, because he can hit the ball a long way in BP when he's not trying to slap out singles. However, what I don't understand is why the Mariners had to send money to the Yankees for this trade to happen. They're covering most of his remaining salary, meaning that all Ichiro was worth to the team was a couple of million and two lousy pitchers. They'd probably have gotten more if they'd waited until after the trading deadline and seen if anyone claimed him, in which case the claiming team would've had to pay his whole salary. When you think about it, they almost gave him away for less than nothing. I realize that they wanted to accommodate his request, but I'm sure there would've been some other teams willing to give up a little more than what they got.

And it's official, the Pirates are deadline buyers for the first time in recorded history after trading for Houston's Wandy Rodriguez.
