Area 51 needs a makeover
As we are kids growing up watching our favorite sports, we always find that one player that lights up our eyes. For some, it may be the kid, Ken Griffey Jr.; it maybe the dominant Randy Johnson; but to some of the new era of Mariners baseball, it's Ichiro Suzuki.
In 2011, Suzuki struggled, should I say, pretty badly. He hit only .272, with 184 hits in 677 at bats. He also missed out on his first 200-hit season after 10 consecutive years of doing so.
Although he struggled this past season with an injury at one moment, he still needs to find a way to fight off the struggles and get back to his dominant Ichiro that everyone knows.
If the Mariners want to improve, they must find a way to improve Ichiro and bring him back to his dominant leadoff position that he has been known to be in Seattle.
