That's a lot of money for someone of his age and productivity especially if he has more than this year on his contract (not sure if he does).
The Mariners are eating all but 2mil of Ichiro's deal. For 2 shit pitching prospects? I don't understand this one at all.

Anibel Sanchez is going to get absolutely lit up by AL hitting.
