ichiro on his hitless streak according to seattle times:

Ichiro on his smash in the ninth that completed another 0-for-4 day on Tuesday: "Part of me said, 'Go through so it can be a hit,' but another part of me said, 'Make this out so the streak can continue.' "

...“To tell you the truth, some of this is kind of fun,” Ichiro said, speaking through translator Ken Barron. “To be in a situation this early in spring training, and have this bit of an intense environment, it’s something I couldn’t experience before.

“Basically, it’s a situation where I need to battle within myself mentally. That’s something I haven’t experienced this time of year, and I get to experience that right now. That is something that is great for me.”

"Once I get a hit, it might actually make me sad this experience isn't going to be there anymore," he said. "At the same time, I understand I need results."

Good, I was about to flood Yahoo's email requesting that Ichiro be removed from their Can't Cut list. ;-D

Didn't he just get a 5 year $18 mil contract?
Maybe they can trade up to Juan Pierre to save some money

I think a lot of Ichiro's 'strangeness' is actually him having fun with the media.
