Nice outing for Felix, as he readies for the MLB Opener in Japan vs. the A’s…

3 IP – 0 H – 0 ER – 0 BB – 4K

Ichiro’s best day so far in his new 3-hole spot…

3-3 with 2 RBI and 1 run scored (he did have a little mix-up on the bases though when Justin laced a line drive and Ichiro was called out at 3B, cuz Kawasaki was already there 😉 )

Adam’s number for the day was TWO… 

2-2 with 2 RBI and 2 runs scored

The big news of the day – Carlos calls it a career…

“My first two boys were born in Seattle, so that’s why I wanted to come here,” he said. “I never thought to end my career here, but I feel like I have to. I learned a lot of good things from Jay Buhner and all the players when I was here — Edgar Martinez, Junior, A-Rod. They were fun years for me and the fans in Seattle.”

I’ll never forget “the bunt” “the bunt”…

I was crossing the Narrows Bridge in Tacoma on my way to my Grandfather’s memorial service in Sequim when I heard Dave make that call. I cried tears of joy knowing he was cheering from above.

Seattle Times

Best Wishes in Retirement, Carlos!
