Buhner told ESPN 710 Seattle that he'd "vomit" if the Mariners offered Ichiro any type of long-term commitment.
Here's Buhner's full comment:
I'd vomit. I mean, really, no offense. No offense, we've got to get this organization turned around. You can't be spending all the money on one guy.
I'm sure if the Mariners offered a guy like Felix Hernandez or Jesus Montero a multi-year deal, Buhner would have absolutely nothing to say about it.
Buhner likely has absolutely no problem with the Mariners offering a ton of money to one guy, as long as the one guy isn't an aging right fielder who is experiencing the worst season of his MLB career.
