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.
