Ichiro to move FO

While it's a nice PR move (and still not a bad baseball move) I'm surprised people are overlooking the fact that this was done because he now sucks and is a cover up to him being DFA'd. The Mariners coaching staff and front office likely all got together and said "We gotta cut this guy, how can we do this in a way that won't encite riots?"

Completely accurate, but at the same time I'm sure he's still working on his baseball abilities. One thing he could do is stand in during his pitching teammate's side sessions and give them a live batter, then they improve [you would imagine, perhaps], Ichiro's batting eye stays sharp, and who knows, maybe he comes back later in the year.
