According to Deadspin, Ichiro is not a fan of Cleveland:
The Mariners were clearly not thrilled with the detour before opening a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday. "To tell the truth, I'm not excited to go to Cleveland, but we have to," Ichiro said through an interpreter. "If I ever saw myself saying I'm excited going to Cleveland, I'd punch myself in the face, because I'm lying."
Punch himself in the face? Wow.
