I have this to say to some pitchers: Don't worry too much about Ichiro. The odds are pretty good that he will get a hit off you, but don't fret over that. He is unlikely to drive in a run with his hit because look at the Seattle 7-8-9. And who on that team is going to bring him home?
Unless you make a mistake, is he really going to hit a home run?
Don't worry too much about Ichiro!
