Wait, Tribune might just allow that. $11M per year factors out to 4 tickets sold through their scalping 'service'.

There are so many problems with this deal, I about died laughing reading it. Seattle gets so much money from Japenesse companies and fans that they'd never trade Ichiro even if it made sense in a pure on-field issue.

 

Next the Cubs will think they can trade for Bonds. :lol

The Seattle Mariners' superstar right fielder, the most dangerous leadoff hitter in baseball,

At least JP is consistent. He knows what he an do and he does it damn good. Ichiro is pretty consistent too isnt he?

Ichiro barely has more power. They talked about him on baseball tonight. He's not a home run hitter but he tries to hit home runs.

 

It's kind of like Luis Castillo. He has the power to hit one out but he has said he's not a home run hitter and he doesn't try to hit home runs. That means he knows what he can do and he does it good. Just like JP. It's not always abut swingin' for the fences. Someone tell that to Ichiro. Use what got you here in the first place.

Ichiro doesn't swing for the fences very often. They say he could have a lot more homers, he just knows his role and puts the ball in play. The last few years he's led the league in infield hits I believe. They say in BP Ichiro hits but doesn't swing for the fences in games because it isn't in the team's best interest.

Yeah, but lately he's been doing it and that's why the Mariners. Can't blame it all on him but he is their MVP and has been since he arrived. He's their leader and they rely on him to get on base.

Sad fact is that with the talented pitching prospects the Cubs have they can get just about any player they want.

Every team has talented prospects. If we were willing to deal Hermida and/or Stokes, we could get just about whoever we wanted too, the difference is we're not willing to deal them away, and after the woes with Wood and Prior, the Cubs may not be so quick to deal either.

 

I still don't see them adding anyone of significance simply because their owners never add big money to their payroll. It took months of begging for them to authorize Maddux's addition.

There's a difference between 2 good position prospects and the dozen good pitching prospects that every GM is salivating over.

The Cubs should definitely unload a bunch of those this year because they are starting to rot behind that rotation. These are the times I feel unqualified in a discussion because I know very little about any team's minor league system. :D
