Mariners Management Suffers Collective Heart Attack

From Diamond Leung:

...apparently Ichiro is working out as a pitcher in preparation for a possible appearance in the World Baseball Classic. Check out the pictures. Just don't give James Loney any ideas.

Yeah, you never want to see your star outfielder airing it out on the mound. Still, I'm curious to see how fast Ichiro's fastball is.

The article you linked says he hit 90-92 mph. Sweet. I really, really hope he doesn't pull a Canseco and find himself needing surgery.

Are you kidding. 90 right out of the box. Amazing.

I still think he could outrun the ball to home plate.
