Ichiro Suzuki Trade Proves ‘Face of Franchise’ Title Means Less and Less in Today’s Game (Video)

When Ichiro Suzuki was traded to the Yankees on Monday, many around the entire baseball world scratched their heads.

Not because Ichiro is going to turn the tide in the pennant race, however, but just because after everything he meant to the Mariners, nobody knew that the team was willing to trade him, nevermind that he would request the trade himself.

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette asked our Twitter followers who they think will be the next “face of a franchise” to get shipped out of town. See what they had to say in the video above.
