The one, the only, Raul Ibanez. - Justin Sullivan
Raul Ibanez is apparently in agreement with the Mariners, his first home in major league baseball.
Can it really be called a farewell tour if it has just one stop?

Ken Rosenthal is reporting that Raul Ibanez, who will be 41 in June, has reached an agreement with the Seattle Mariners. No further details about the length of the contract or the amount of money is available at this time, but we'll update you as further IMPORTANT BREAKING NEWS about this story becomes known.
Ibanez played 10 total years with the Mariners, starting his major league career with them in 1996 (he was drafted by them in 1992). He played five years for the Mariners before doing a tour with the Royals from 2001 to 2003, and returning to Seattle in 2004. He played there until he was signed by the Phillies, and played with the Fightins from 2009 to 2011. And then he played a year with the Yankees, but I somehow don't care so much about that.
So as I said, stay tuned for further IMPORTANT BREAKING IBANEZ NEWS.
