Yanks Get Ichiro

Posted: July 23, 2012 in Uncategorized

Coming from a series sweep in Oakland, Yankees have acquired a blockbuster deal from the Mariners. Expect Ichiro to give the Bronx Bombers hitting power at bat. The sluggers go for their 28th championship this season. Ichiro, who had an AL MVP season in 2001 with the Yankees, is a 10-time all star, maintains a career average of .322 while also earning 10-gold glove seasons.

Here are some quoted Tweets from the @yankees concerning Ichiro 

-“I’m going from a team having the most losses to a team with the most wins, so it’s been hard to maintain my excitement.” – Ichiro

-“Please be nice to me, I feel like telling them.” – Ichiro on joining Jeter, A-Rod on Yanks

-“No. 51 is a special number to me, but when I think about what 51 means to the Yankees, it’s hard for me to ask for that number.” – Ichiro

-“Ichiro can hit man. He can play.” – Derek Jeter.
