San Diego Union-Tribune (scroll down): "Before last night's game, Dodgers GM Ned Colletti and Tony Attanasio, the agent for Ichiro Suzuki, chatted for more than an hour. Suzuki, the Mariners' leadoff man and center fielder, is eligible for free agency in November. The Padres are among the teams that covet him."

It doesn't say they talked about Ichiro, only that the agent represents him.

If the agent has other clients who happen to be Dodgers, then it's possible the meeting was on the up and up.

If they were talking about Ichiro, then yes, it's tampering.
