 ブルペンに入り力強い投球を披露するマリナーズ・イチロー=スカイマーク

ブルペンに入り力強い投球を披露するマリナーズ・イチロー=スカイマーク

WBC日本代表候補のマリナーズ・イチロー外野手(35)が7日、神戸市内のスカイマークスタジアムでブルペン入りし、56球の投球練習を行った。「今日はそれが目的で来ました。遊びじゃない」。その言葉通りに140キロ超えの速球を連発。延長タイブレーク制があるWBCでの緊急登板を見据えて、「備え」にも余念がないイチローだ。

Translation: Ichiro throws 56 pitches in the bullpen. Busts out his fastball to the tune of around 90 MPH. "I ain't shittin' you today. This is fuckin' serious," Ichiro said. Reports say he also busted out a forkball.

"I expect to be closer for the Mariners," continued Ichiro. "Roy Corcoran? Tyler Walker? They traded J.J. for a 4th outfielder and a pair of socks. WTF. I'm just making sure we're better than that."

With extra non-translation translations...
