Okay, Seriously -- The Sox NEED Ichiro

http://ussmariner.com/2007/06/11/best-ichiro-quote-yet/

Ichiro on going to play in Cleveland:

"To tell the truth, I'm not excited to go to Cleveland, but we have to," Ichiro said through an interpreter. "If I ever saw myself saying I'm excited going to Cleveland, I'd punch myself in the face, because I'm lying."

That's fucking awesome -- get this guy in a Sox uniform ASAP.

Here's another link to some other real good quotes, as Ichiro has his say on Tiger Woods:  the athlete, and steroids.

And here's another one that I posted in a different thread but it deserves to be posted again (via Deadspin):

"The ball became the same color as the sky,'' he said, through interpreter Ken Barron. "So, I wasn't able to see it ... I was sending mental signals for the ball not to come my way, because during that time of day it's impossible for me to see the ball so I lacked mental signals. I lacked in that area.'

"Usually, I don't send mental signals," Ichiro replied. "So, because this is the first time, I thought, please don't come my way."

Combined with his above average baseball ability, Ichiro has now become the guy I want the Sox to go after this winter.  These quotes are golden!
