Were The Mariners About To Issue A Code Red On Ichiro?

This comes as news to me, but then I haven't followed the Mariners very closely since, well, ever; and that includes the years I lived in Seattle. Apparently Ichiro Suzuki is so unpopular with his teammates that several of them got together earlier in the season and planned how they were going to "go after him."… » 9/25/08 1:00pm 9/25/08 1:00pm
