My guess: Ichiro full time outfielder... Ibanez DH vs Righties, Jones DH vs Lefties
Ichiro's been awful against lefties this year himself so Girardi has some wiggle room..i'm just wondering where Ichiro will bat..if he's batting 7th or 8th his value is unchanged IMO
Bingo. Better glove man than Ibanez. Can take over for Wise (who just got cut), play LF, DH some, primarily vs righties. It is not ike Ibanez has been a world beater in LF. Solid but a liability in the field. It's real impact is in the limiting of being able to DH ARoid while playing Chavez at 3b. Now I think Arod outright sits a little more.
As to where he bats, my guess is 9th ala Gardner or second with everyone sliding down one. but with Giradi you never know.
