Have you read this?
For me, it’s everything, his whole pre-stance windup, knees stuck together, running-swing, softball style that really grates. The guy runs around the field looking like a little girl trying to keep from peeing her pants. Good god man, are you trapping your cock between your legs? And lose that ridiculous turtleneck Mr. Bentley. It’s all just ugly, no matter the result.
As if all of the softball imitation isn’t bad enough, the guy requested that his FIRST name be put on his jersey. Not since Vida Blue fulfilled Charlie Finley’s request that his players be eccentric has a player adorned himself with such a selfish proclamation.
I don’t blame any of these guys for wanting to “knock him out.” I don’t even know him and I’d be one of the first to line up. There are few professional athletes upon whom the average American sports fan can realistically expect to whoop ass. Ichiro is one. I’d knock that 150 pound midget into the dirt if given a legal chance.
The story only confirms what I always suspected; Ichiro’s selfish and his teammates can’t stand him.
