I'm dreaming of a Japanese outfield..

Since we like to discuss things that are never, ever going to happen, here's one that would really be something. If we do let Eckstein walk, we are going to need a lead-off batter. I know the Mariners would be crucified for letting him go, but Ichiro has as good a right as anyone to test the free-agent waters.

Per mlbtraderumors.com and this article it looks like Seattle will try to get him locked up in the Spring.

Any chance So and Ichiro are long-time buddies that always wanted to play together? As far-fetched as it sounds, the Redbirds would be in a good spot money-wise to make a run at him.

I don't do polls or anything like that, but I would like to hear if you think this is as out there as I do. I personally would love to see him patrolling Busch III from any of the outfield spots, and I know Albert wouldn't mind it either.
