Cross Ichiro off the list

I guess the Yankees won't be inquiring about Ichiro's (pictured) services this offseason. He is about to sign an extension to stay with the Mariners.

The club is on the verge of locking up Ichiro, its All-Star outfielder whose contract was set to expire after the season, to a five-year contract extension, The Seattle Times has learned. Indications are the deal will approach $100 million and could be announced Friday.

An agreement is said to be imminent. Though it is not yet signed, all sides appear to be in agreement in principle on the parameters of the deal, which would run through the 2012 season (source).

Oh well. There's always Torii Hunter.
