Yankees could finalize Ichiro deal soon

The Yankees are hoping to finalize a deal with Ichiro Suzuki within the next few days.

A couple other teams, believed to include the Phillies, are talking to Ichiro, but the international star has made it known he wants to be a Yankee. And they want him back.

Ichiro hit .322 for the Yankees, and don't discount that he has 2,606 hits, putting him within striking distance of becoming the first Japanese player to have 3,000 hits.

The Yankees also would like to acquire a righthanded-hitting outfielder.
