Ichiro Will Be Back In The Lineup Wednesday For The Mariners, Banishes Bleeding Ulcer To The Land Of Wind And Ghosts

ichiroIchiro Suzuki has announced that he plans to be back in right field for the Mariners on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Angels of Ahaheim, California, United States, North America, Earth, Milky Way Galaxy. Ichiro is feeling so good right now it’s “annoying” him.

I wish we had a better quote from Ichiro on the topic, like this one from 2007:

“The ball became the same color as the sky,” he said, through interpreter Ken Barron. “So, I wasn’t able to see it … I was sending mental signals for the ball not to come my way, because during that time of day it’s impossible for me to see the ball so I lacked mental signals. I lacked in that area.’

“Usually, I don’t send mental signals,” Ichiro replied. “So, because this is the first time, I thought, please don’t come my way.”

That is one far out statement, man. I envy Ichiro and his ability to send mental signals. Whenever I try to send mental signals to something, I get a busy tone – you would think the Doritos in my cupboard would have call waiting or something since Frito-Lay is a pretty big company. Apparently they do not place a high priority on such things so I have to get up and get the Doritos myself. Sometimes life is so unfair.
