The Marlins to sign Ichiro Suzuki

What has been rumored for a good while is now becoming reality, it seems:

Yesterday it was reported that Miami made Ichiro a one year, $2 million offer.

Though his best years are behind him, Ichiro can still be a useful backup outfielder. He can handle both corners and, while he hasn’t played much center field lately, can probably cover it in a pinch. And he can pinch run. As long as a superstar like Ichiro can be cool with being a bench player, this should work out just fine.
