I admit I have no idea on the numbers of Ibanez or Jones, but couldn't this just mean Ichiro takes over for Ibanez/Jones?
it's funny seeing some reactions on twitter. as if the Yankees trade for the Ichiro that he used to be.
maybe Ichiro gets more motivated and goes crazy in NY? but his current line isn't exactly WOW - .261/.288/.353/.642/ 4 HR/ 15 SB.
It'd be interesting for Ichiro to take over for Jones/Ibanez, as they've been much more productive than he has this year. LF has hardly been a deficit for them this season, nor has offense as a whole. If Swisher's health is in question, it makes it much more understandable.
