The Yankees left Seattle having won two out of three games at Safeco Field. Ichiro left with them undoubtedly nursing a sore ankle after Felix Hernandez lost control of a pitch in Tuesdays game. Ichiro wasn’t the only Yankee to be assaulted as if King Felix was playing dodgeball, rather than baseball.
Alex Rodriguez, who many Mariners fans still hate with a passion was also a victim of Hernandez’s. Not only was A-Roid hit with a pitch, he was hit in his hand and will be sidelined for approximately eight weeks. That’s two months of baseball that we can enjoy without Alex Rodriguez.
We here at Seattle Sports Central never cheer injury or wish harm on any professional athlete just because he or she plays for a rival team. Unless that persons name happens to be Alex Rodriguez.
