Ichiro a Yank

This is one of the most shocking baseball trades I have seen in a while. The Mariners traded the face of their team, Ichiro Suzuki to the Yankees for 2 prospects. Ichiro has spent his whole career in Seattle, being the spark in the lineup and a fan favorite. To me it seems the move was made so Seattle could free up salary space, and receive good prospects before Ichiro is too old ad not wanted. Even though there isn`t a cap rule in baseball, the Mariners probable want to begin a youth movement like the have started the last 2 years acquiring young players like Justin Smoak and others.
