Ichiro's not only a hit machine, he's a quote machine too. He's had a number of dandies over the years. The one about wanting to punch himself in the face rather than spend time in Cleveland might be his all-time best, but this one following the Mariners' fourth consecutive blowout loss Friday ranks right up there:
Via the Seattle Times: "Playing on this team and seeing what is happening around me, I feel that something is beginning to fall apart," Ichiro said, through a translator. "But, if I was not in this situation, and I was objectively watching what just happened this week, I would probably be drinking a lot of beers and booing."
You gotta hand it to him, he really knows the fan base.
