I'm fascinated with the way Ichiro puts the bat on the ball. I really only saw his last at bat last night but he was looking fastball inner half and he could foul off every breaking ball on the outer half at will. It was very Gwynn like. The swings are different but the results were the same. He's only been in the league 7 years and he has 1600+ hits, pretty amazing player.

Look at this line up! Gerut and Edgar Gonzalez kicking it off and Carlin catching. I think Buddy is playing to win.
