Ichiro Signs Five Year Extension With Seattle

Seattle Mariners outfielder and 2007 MLB All-Star MVP Ichiro Suzuki signed a five year contract extension with his team on Friday. According to published reports, the deal is said to be for $90 million, below the $20 million per year that the Seattle Times had reported on Tuesday that the player would receive. Seattle General Manager Bill Bavasi said that the goal of the team going into spring training was to lock up Ichiro for the remainder of his career. The five year extension will end when Ichiro is 39. Suzuki leads MLB with 168 hits coming out of the break, and is hitting .355 going into Friday night's game.
