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.
Sample size. Like how Josh Hamilton hit .177 in July and .360 with 21 homeruns in April and May.
I'd be willing to bet Ichiro is more the .280 hitter than the .300+ hitter.
You're missing the key thing though, who will sign him? Surround him with talent, what high up there team wants to spend a lot of money on an average outfielder?
