I honestly think he might come back to the Mariners if they want to for a cheap deal, he plays out his final year with the Mariners, struggling but finishing out a great career with "his" team.
Ichiro is batting over .300 with the Yankees in 26 games played.

Stick him on a team where he is surrounded with talent, like he is right now, and he will produce in the lineup, while still having an above average glove, arm, and speed.

I don't know if he will start for 3 more years, but I could see him in a starting lineup for at least 2 more years.
