Upon the Yankees' recent acquisition of renowned outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, diehard Seattle Mariners fan Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie unveiled a track that he hard recorded years ago, dedicated to Ichiro. Gibbard is also currently working on his solo debut, but had this to say regarding the Japanese star's departure:
Totally okay with this trade. Thanks for your best years, Ichiro. We will always look back on them fondly. #Mariners #Ichiro I wrote this song a few years ago. Today seems like the best day to share it with you. Thank you so much, Ichiro.
