    Here is a good article on Ichiro

    This article gave me a new perspective of Ichiro and how he became the player he is:

    Wow that is a good article. It seems in the last few ESPN has devolved into the All Stephen A Smith All The Time network, only good for hot takes and an occasional box score. Did they somehow decide that good stories are relevant again? Or is it just Wright Thompson going rogue?
    Collecting Roberto Alomar cards. Got rare ones? PM me and let's make a deal!
    Some key cards still on the wantlist:
    1992 Star Promo - 1993 Pinnacle Cooperstown Promo
    1995 Score Rules Jumbo - 1996 Aficionado First Pitch Preview
    1996 Select Mirror Blue & Gold - 1997 Fleer Ultra Platinum Medallion
    1997 Pinnacle Totally Certified Platinum Gold - 1997 Topps Stars All-Stars
    1997 Score Platinum and Premier Club Teams - 1998 Bowman's Best Atomic

    I agree with you. I barely even watch ESPN anymore and never read any of their articles. I might have to watch for Wright Thompson authored pieces though. That is a wonderfully written article. Ichiro is on my short list of favorite players that never played for the Cardinals. Not much of a list really, it's basically just Ichiro and Cutch. Talk about polar opposites.
