Ichiro named AL Player of the Week


Ichiro Suzuki has been named the AL Player of the Week, the league announced. He turned back the clock to the Ichiro! days by going 15-for-25 (.600) with three doubles, two homers, and six steals (in six attempts) in the club’s six games. It’s his fourth Player of the Week award and first with the Yankees, so congrats to him.

    That makes me happy. And makes Ichiro happier!


    I’ve been a strong believer in Ichiro since we got him. I think he’s one of Cashman’s greatest trades and it’ll become more and more clear why as we get into October. With Gardner back and hitting 9th we’ll have a triple lead off- Gardner, Jeter, Ichy.
