At the moment, he's stretched out in right field - lying on his back, talking to manager Don Wakamatsu and trainer Rick Griffin.
They're standing up.
The conversation undoubtedly is about whether Ichiro is ready to play after missing three games with a strained calf.
Ichiro wants to play - he has said he's ready to play and was held by as a precaution against hurtnig himself more.
He's run in the outfield, taken batting practice in the cages beneath Safeco Field and done all the drills they've asked of him.
Now, Ichiro trots like a stallion into center field, walks back slowly. Stretches again and has another convesation with Griffin.
Clearly, he wants in tonight. It's not clear what Griffin or Wakamatsu think.
More soon, as the Ichiro turns.
