08:05 AM ET 12.10 | In the city so nice they named it twice, Ichiro Suzuki may want another go 'round. [Ichiro] enjoyed playing for the New York Yankees so much, he likely will be back with them again. The Yankees are showing strong interest in re-signing the free-agent outfielder, according to major league sources. "They are all over him," one source says. "That (a deal with Ichiro) will happen." Ichiro, 39, would join two other left-handed hitters in the Yankees' outfield, Curtis Granderson and Brett Gardner. The Yankees then would need a right-handed complement, presuming they do not trade Granderson, an idea the team is exploring, sources say. The return of Ichiro would not preclude the Yankees from re-signing free agent Raul Ibanez.

Ichiro was a great addition to the Yanks. Another go round would be great

Gotta say I have always been a huge fan of Ichiro and I really enjoyed getting to watch him play more since he joined the Yankees. He seemed to thrive here considering where he is in his overall time line in the game.

The plan has been revealed. Throw some money on one year contracts to some vets, hope they have one good year left, then in 2014 between $60-$90 million comes off the books.

And there you have it.

I think it is a good plan--a bit heavy on LH hitters, but not bad for patchwork.

After rereading the title, I hope the Steinbrothers aren't doing something unseemly to poor Ichiro.

My thoughts exactly. Hopefully, they're not going Shawshank on him in the laundry room.
