    SEATTLE (AP) -- Ichiro Suzuki is headed to a new team and, after all these years, maybe a shot at playing in the World Series.

    The New York Yankees acquired the star outfielder from the Seattle Mariners in a trade Monday for two young pitchers.

    The Yankees, with the best record in the majors, also got cash in the deal that sent 25-year-old righties D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar to the last-place Mariners. The trade was announced a few hours before the Yankees played at Seattle.

    The 38-year-old Suzuki had spent his whole big league career with Seattle. The 10-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove winner is batting .261 with four home runs, 28 RBIs and 15 stolen bases this year.

    Suzuki is a career .322 hitter, a former AL MVP and holds the record for most hits in a season. He had batted over .300 in every season until dipping last year...................

    I was disappointed to see him go to the Yanks or even Boston.
