With Gardner out for the remainder of the year is there anyone who is closer to what Gardner is than Ichiro? A fast singles hitter who plays good defense. Isn’t that what the Yankees are missing without Gardner? Gardner was never a power hitter so its not like you are sacrificing Homers. For a couple of prospects the Yankees stole Ichiro. In my mind there is still allot left in the tank for Ichiro. I’m pretty sure its just for the remainder of this season but who knows. For those of you who think Suzuki is washed up and done, put yourself on notice. Of course these are the same people that think Jeter is done too.
