Keep the faith. I am a die-hard Mariner fan and have been watching Ichiro closely. He is hitting the ball fairly well, however he's just not finding the gaps. His natural hitting ability is being questioned right now, and he knows it. Therefore he may be pressing a bit. He has the best eyes and the best bat control I have ever seen. He literally swings the bat like a tennis racket! All it will take for him to break out, is one or two good games to build his confidence back up. I would make a move for Ichiro while his stock is down, because once he heats up, there's no looking back.
