So that explains Ichiro, but what about him doing it to help Seattle out, by getting them prospects, rather than walking away at the end of the year?The bottom line here is PROSPECTS. It is like raping a girl first and then giving her 10 dollars for "letting" you rape her.
You have some serious issues. Trading for an aging star player is not akin to rape and then trying to pay the girl for it afterwards.
Does this explain Pujols? A multiple MVP and multiple World Champion in St. Louis. Upping sticks and heading to Anaheim, of all places.Your argument would be valid if Ichiro stayed at Seattle. As it stands, both are greedy glory hunters.
And you would complain if the trade had brought Ichiro to Fenway?
I thought not.

Keep on ignoring us guys. It'll be that much sweeter when we whip the shit out of your teams.
Interesting case, that you make. I get the feeling that the three divisions in the NL are looking like LA, Cincy and Washington, with maybe to Giants making a run on the Dodgers later in the year. It's too early to call, just yet.
Melky Cabrera's breakout season is over, after he tested positive for Testosterone. Idiot. He was on pace to pass 200 hits this season and instead, he now gets regarded as tainted goods.
Bravo to "King" Felix Hernandez, pitching a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays, striking out 12. That's the 23rd perfect game in Major League history and the 3rd in 2012 alone. Since I've been a follower of the game (start of 1999), I've seen 8 Perfects, which is quite a lot.
Pitchers are in the ascendancy.
