Mark my words: this will go down as the best trade of 2001… Alright, so Ichiro has fallen a bit from grace, but how motivated could you possibly be playing on a team that entered the season 15 game out of first? With Gardner out, I love the dynamic that the suavest guy in the league will bring to the the lineup. Not to mention that little shoulder jersey pull is gonna have the bitches swooning every time he comes to the plate. Bust out the yellow signs, you devout, die-hard Asians that are currently crashing the NYC stubhub servers. Great work, Cashman.

P.S.- I expect my girl Meredith to be ALL OVER this awkwardness tonight in Seattle.
