Thiel: Gamel's down, so Mariners talking to Ichiro

Sources say he will sign once he clears a physical test.

The future Hall of Famer has spent the majority of his 17-year major-league career with the Mariners.

Seattle Mariners outfielder Ben Gamel has been diagnosed with an oblique strain and is out for 4-to-6 weeks. "(Mariners general manager) Jerry Dipoto probably didn't feel like he needed to go out and make a big move because these injuries are sort of minor".

Gamel is added to a growing list of ailments for the Mariners. Outfielder Guillermo Heredia is also still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, leaving Seattle thin at the position.

Ichiro Suzuki, at 44 years old, is getting closer to continuing his major league career where it all began - with the Seattle Mariners. He batted leadoff and played right field for a team that won 116 games before losing to Lucifer's own New York Yankees in the ALCS.

There isn't anything someone could say about a Bo Jackson athletic feat that I wouldn't believe at the drop of a hat. But hours later, Jackson said he was "shocked" by the news because "no teams have asked me to play wide receiver".

The new deal comes just four months after Ichiro became a free agent when he was released by the Miami Marlins.

Ichiro is only the sixth player who is 43 years of age or older to have 50 hits or more in a season.

In his first 10 seasons, he accumulated at least 200 hits each year, including an all-time single-season record of 262 in 2004.

On July 4 of a year ago, Ichiro's batting average was.202, but the remainder of the season he hit.315 and finished at.255.
