This JR Wolf character really dislikes PEDs and Ichiro.
Now, what else do you have to say?
How is this even a question? Ichiro had more big hits in the playoffs last year than Swish had his whole career as a Yankee. And Swisher is a complete joke on defense. Below average arm with below average range and below average judgement. Ichiro is well above average in all those categories. He is also much faster than Swish and a better timely hitter. Swisher is the classic homer or bust hitter in clutch situations and there are already too many of those hitters on this team. Just ask yourself this. Who would you rather have up in the 9th inning, down 2 runs and needing a baserunner? Easy, Ichiro.less

Have the Yanks been connected to any more potential platoon partners for Ichiro (or, like their entire left handed OF) and I've just missed it?
But all through this past season there seemed to be absolutely no question about bringing him back, and from what I can understand Yankee fans seemed happy to see him go.
I think it was widely assumed that Swisher wasn't coming back for financial reasons, so people started getting ready for him to leave. Also, Swisher has been dreadful in the playoffs recently: .184/.241/.286 the last two years, which tends to (fairly or not) turn people aganist you.

Did Swisher do something recently to piss people off? I seem to recall him being a bit of a fan favourite in New York (or at least an affable guy that people seemed to like).
