Grading the Ichiro Suzuki Trade, Did Yankees or Mariners Come out on Top?

Ichiro Suzuki's time with the Seattle Mariners has officially come to an end. In a shocking turn of events, the Mariners parted ways with Ichiro by trading him to the big, bad New York Yankees Monday evening.

This is the kind of transaction that calls for immediate discussion. To that end, B/R lead pop culture blogger Gabe Zaldivar and I are on the case.

In the above video, Gabe and I break down the Ichiro trade and give our grades for the trade itself. Will Ichiro find the Fountain of Youth hitting in the Yankees' stud-stacked lineup, or will he continue to look like a player who's fallen well past his prime?

In other words, did the Yankees get themselves a steal, or is this trade not as big as the headlines suggest?
