Ichiro’s thoughts on Matt Murton

Just noticed a more complete version of Ichiro's comments on Matt Murton and thought some people might be interested.  Via Nikkan Sports:

What is Aoki doing?  But [Matt Murton] did that in his first year in Japan.  I've never heard of him.  A player like that goes to Japan has 210 hits so far in his first year, that's kind of shocking to me. ... So he's a player that never made it as a starting outfielder.  But, he did it in his first year.  That made me think that you can't take America too lightly.

    I want to publicly congratulate my teammate and friend Matt Murton on setting a new single season hit record in Japan. What Matt has done this year for our team is nothing but amazing. To also accomplish this feat in his first year in Japan, truly is really special. God has blessed him tremendously!! So, to my friend, thanks for the memories this year!! P.T.L.
