    Amen Kent. If they just had someone at the top that knew baseball instead of bullshit promotions. Their entire TV presentation is so minor league that it is just embarrassing. I expect they will be showcasing Milking Contest and Sadie Hawkins Day races any day now.

    Ichiro gave it 10 good years but I think in the end the losses just weighed too heavily on a guy whose game was based on excellence. I think going to a winner will be a rush for a guy who has suffered more than a decade of Mariner bad decisions at the executive level. I doubt that he will end the season with a paltry .261 average.

    I'll be at Safeco Field tomorrow rooting for Ichiro all the way even if it does mean rooting for the damn Yankees by association..

    To often when a marquee player gets to the end of his productive career teams and players make bad choices. We certainly seen some of those happen here as well as other places. I am really glad Ichiro is moving on it was time but I am more happy about the way that the two teams, Ichiro and the fans have handled this event it has been classy.

    Jesse,

    I agree totaly. Class all around and it's not something we see a lot of in sports these days.

    We never won with him And he was a selfiah player. Never would take anything for the team. All his past teammates wanted to kick his ass.

    Oh yeah. He was the real problem. Not Sexton or Figgins or Bradley or Cirillo or Bedard or Silva or Spiezio or Batista or Wakamatsu or the terrible bullpens or awful free agent signings or almost every trade Bavasi ever pulled. The big issue was the first ballot hall of famer with the 2500 hits and 10 years of gold gloves and all star selections.
