I would be happy to see Ichiro get a World Series ring, but I hate that he would have to do it with the damned Yankees.

When he goes into the Hall of Fame (he's a sure thing), should his statue be wearing the uniform of the Yankees, the Mariners, or the Blue Wave?

Or maybe even Aikodai Meiden High in Nagoya ! ? !

I always wanted this type of atmosphere before coming to America,” Ichiro said Monday through an interpreter before the Yankees played the Baltimore Orioles in the second game of the best-of-five American League Division Series.

Why is he still speaking through an interpreter? We've got foreign players on our team who've only been here a short time, speak heavily accented & "messy" English, but still always give their comments in English. I'm not saying this to be mean, I'm just really curious. I've always admired him as a player, but don't understand this block about speaking English.

There's no contention since it's obviously Mariners.

He's having all these feelings and it's nice and all that,but for most of his career he played without pressure in Seattle.Him forcing the trade to the Yankees,and not having played in the playoffs since '01 would make you feel like a rookie.I'd rather have Matsui's MLB career than Ichiro's.Tho Matsui won't get in the HOF.
