Ichiro Suzuki: High Mental Stress, May Leave Seattle Mariners
Ichiro Suzuki has always been one of the more stoic major superstars in the world, but losing and seeing his streak of 10 seasons with 200 hits come to an abrupt end was enough to cause the greatest hitter in the world some frustration. He has always kept a controlled buffer with the media, but recently he decided to open up and reveal to the world — in his opinion — just what went wrong last season.
Commenting on his own self-imposed pressure to be the best hitter in the world, Ichiro recently stated, “I felt desperate last season. That doesn’t happen to me very often. Mental stress is a lot worse than physical stress. Yes my skin gets dry but it’s a lame conclusion to blame everything on age. People are quick to point to age. Those kinds of people don’t interest me.”
I expect Ichiro Suzuki to bounce back this upcoming season because he certainly wants to prove last season was a fluke, however, if age was the reason for his decline, then it is realistic to expect that he may be interested in leaving the Seattle Mariners soon.
After all this great Hall Of Famer deserves a better opportunity to win a Commissioner’s Trophy, before he retires.
