What? Did umpires in the majors finally learn how to say "Fuck You" in Japanese?
Looked like a strike, hit the catcher's target and he framed it perfectly. I'm surprised Ichiro reacted this way with all of his experience. I'm sure there have been balls called strikes worse than this.
You're not allowed to argue calls and strikes and drawing a line embarasses the umpire. He knows better after playing for nearly 20 years.
Think the pressure is getting to him that he's in a tight race for the batting title and that he plays for a shit team.
