Mariners Notebook: Goff expresses wonderment at Ichiro

Mariners Notebook: Goff expresses wonderment at Ichiro
Coach has gotten to know hitting star at familiar first-base stop

By JOHN HICKEY AND DAVID ANDRIESEN
P-I REPORTERS

PEORIA, Ariz. -- One of the quiet traditions in baseball is the first-base coach's words of praise when a hitter reaches his station.

When the hitter is Ichiro Suzuki, however, the coach might run out of words. That's what first base coach Mike Goff discovered last year. Ichiro ran off his sixth 200-hit season with 224, of which 186 were singles, necessitating a stop at first base.

"I finally got to the point where I just said the same thing every time," Goff said Wednesday morning. "I'd say, 'How do you do that?' "

Ichiro would play mind games with Goff, giving funny answers or talking about something entirely different.

But when the Mariners leadoff hitter had three singles Tuesday in the first of two Seattle intrasquad games, Goff was again out there asking, "How do you do that?"

Instead of talking, Ichiro hit the left side of his chest with his right palm. Translation: It's all about heart.

"It's just Ichiro; he's a marvel," Goff said. "With the discipline and the work routines he puts in every day to be the player he is, he's almost not human. His nickname should be The Machine."
