I just got Baseball Mogul 2006. Mogul is a simulation type game. I decided to go back to 1998. My favorite year of baseball. Yankees won the world Series, The Mariners had Ken Griffey, A-rod and Randy Johnson and Ichrio in the minors and we cant forget Sosa vs McGwire. I decided to re-sim that year as the 98 Mariners. I decided to bring up Ichiro.

Here are the Opening Lineup for the 98 Mariners i designed.

Opening Day 1998
RF: Ichiro Suzuki
SS: Alex Rodriguez
CF: Ken Griffey, Jr.
DH: Martinez
1B: David Segui
2b: Joey Cora
3B: Russ Davis
LF: Jay Buhner
C: Dan Wilson

C: Chavez, Raul
C/1B: Wilkins, Rick
1B/OF: Scott Podsednik
SS: Carlos Guillen
OF: Shane Monahan
RF: Ibanez

Pitching Rotation
1. Randy Johnson
2. Freddy Garcia
3. Jeff Fassero
4. Jamie Moyer
5. Felipe Lira

Closer: Mike Timlin
Setup: Bob Wells
Short: Paul Spoljaric

Quck Stats update
Garcia is 4-1 with 35K's. Randy Johnson the Mariners ace is 4-2 with 47 K's and only 5 walks. Arod is out for 4 games and been hurt for a while. He played only 7 games so far. Griffey is hitting .305 with 6 hr. Ichiro is hitting .232 with 1 hr.

btw i know this could of never happen because the players im bringing up would not preform they way they are because well they are getting called up to early. Both Ichiro and Garcia i got of single A.

Can you post the Numbers for the NL also?

Ichiro wasn't in the minors, he wasn't signed until before the 2001 season, he was playing in Japan in 1998 and you could put him, Garcia and whoever else you want on that M's team and they still wouldn't have betaen the Yanks that year which was maybe the best team of all time.

By the way, garcia was traded for Randy Johnson so you can't have both him and randy on the team.
