Aoki aims to brew up championship in Seattle
SEATTLE (AP) — Nori Aoki expressed only a few words in English during his introduction as the latest addition to the Mariners’ offseason makeover.
They were words everyone in Seattle could appreciate, though.
“I came to Seattle for the coffee,” Aoki said with a chuckle, “and also to win the World Series.”
The Mariners finalized a $5.5 million, one-year contract with Aoki on Thursday, including a $6 million conditional option for the 2017 season for the free-agent outfielder.
