Two uncomfortable truths of life in the bullpen, left-hander Jeff Locke has learned since moving there, are his feet hurt from wearing spikes every day, and it’s no longer is cool to crush five cheesesteaks like he could have when his turn in the rotation still was a few days away.
Just four years ago, Ichiro Suzuki was pulling down $17 million for one summer of sweet swinging for the Seattle Mariners, but that seems like so long ago, such a faded image now that Ichiro is clearly not the player he once was.
