Fantasy Impact:

This was expected, but it sounds as if Ichiro will officially be making his announcement later today. The 45-year-old has started each of Seattle's two games in Japan this week while also appearing in the exhibition contests they've played over there. The future HOFer is sitting at 3,089 career hits in the majors alone. That doesn't even count the 1,278 hits he accumulated in Japan.
