Alright then. Ken Rosenthal is taking the pulse of the M's clubhouse (some scrolling required)...
Meanwhile, the Mariners' clubhouse remains toxic, sources say, with both Japanese players, Johjima and Ichiro, drawing resentment. Several starting pitchers dislike throwing to Johjima, and his new contract is a source of envy. Players also are jealous of Ichiro, who follows his own training regimen and is perceived by some to be selfish.
Johjima's contract remains a point of envy? Seriously? Nearly a third of the team makes more than Joh does.
If this is even remotely true then the only proper course of action is to turn the M's roster into a Japanese All-Star team. That should fix the resentment right quick. Yes indeed.
