Ah, So    

Thanks, Ichiro, for giving us all insight into the Mariners' Wrinkled Fruit (and thanks to deadspin for the quote).

“If there is a problem, we need to notice what creates the problem. The problem usually isn’t just on the cover. You need to look much deeper. For example, if we’re talking about a tree and the tree has a problem, you need to look at the root. But you cannot see the root. The mistake is to keep watering the fruit. That’s not going to solve anything.”

  • Speculation over what Ichiro meant over at USS Mariner today:

    It seems pretty clear to me that he's trying to criticize the way the team is being run without anyone in the organization losing face.
