Ichiro’s future beyond this season was a topic discussed Monday when 710 ESPN Seattle’s Shannon Drayer joined “Bob and Groz” for a 17-minute discussion on the Mariners.

Drayer thinks Ichiro — who’s 38 years old, struggling for the second straight season and entering the final year of his contract — wants to return to the Mariners. She wonders, however, whether after years of futility in Seattle he would strongly consider joining a contending team with his legacy in mind.

In the video below, Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby share their thoughts on what the Mariners should do with Ichiro right now and once he becomes a free agent at season’s end.
