Wow. A huge deal for the Seattle sports community.

He deserves a shot at a World Series, and he sure wasn't going to get one in Seattle. May he follow in Gary Payton's footsteps ( NBA ) and get a championship ring.

It'll be strange not seeing him in the lead-off spot in the batting order.

He was done anyway, what did the Mariner's get for him? Talk was he'd retire at the end of the year, or maybe it was hope that he'd retire.

Interesting the M's play the Yankee's starting tonight in Seattle, should make for quite the national show , or at least some added media attention.

I wonder if he'll be able to hit in Safeco for the Yankee's , he's not been hitting very well this season at home.

Best of luck Ichy!!

Wow...Seattle's getting rid of Ichiro--and the Melbourne trolleys...what's left, besides coffee and rain?

Love that guy. Sad he went Yankee town, but best wishes to him.

It's a pity they announced it beforehand and didn't let him trot out tonight in Yankee pinstripes, to the announcer's, "Batting 8th, Number 31, Ichiro"

:D

WTF, are we just a farm team for the Yankees? Didn't we train A Rod for them too?

Brendan Ryan will fill the void...just wait and see.... :D

He's guaranteed to at least hit his weight.
