But Ichiro only has 4 of teh 5 tools necessary to be Special. Until he learns that fifth tool, he may not speak in his native tongue.

Don't worry-- Ichiro will bulk up at he approaches his mid forties--- and start hitting for MAJOR power. He just needs some " Cleah-tine".

Then he rill speak engrish.

Re: how come?


these unneccesary translators can only mean one [sign in to see URL] players have developed "special" relationships with their translators. keeping the translators around is just a duvet cover for their, ahem, preferences. not that there is anything wrong with that. what's wrong is denying urges.
