川崎ムネリン降格 Twitterで「kawasaki sad」検索すると悲しみのツイート多数


メジャーリーグのブルージェイズは今月25日、ムネリンこと川崎宗則内のマイナー降格を発表した。 左足首捻挫で戦線を離脱していたホセ・レイエスが故障者リストから復帰するため入れ替えとなった形だ。
これまでにもお伝えしてきたように、強烈なキャラでファンやチームメートから人気を集めていた川崎だけに、ファンやメディアからは今回の降格を惜しむ声が多く寄せられている。



4月13日のメジャー昇格以来、60試合で打率2割2分5厘・1本塁打・17打点と成績は地味ながら堅実な出塁率や、なんといっても最強のムードメーカーとして愛されていた川崎。
チーム内からも降格を惜しむ声があがっており、「ピッチャーのマーク・バーリーはこう言ってた。『(レイエスの復帰後はどうなるかわからないけど)カワサキへの給料を払うために、お金を出し合う奴はたくさんいるだろうね』」と地元メディアが報じるほど、彼の離脱は波紋を呼んでいるようだ。

当然ブルージェイズ・ファンたちも黙っていられるはずがなく、Twitterを「kawasaki sad」で検索すると、

「レイエスの復帰は嬉しいけど、カワサキがいないのは淋しいな...」
「ため息。カワサキがマイナー落ちするなんて、とても悲しいよ :(」
「レイエス、お帰り! ブルージェイズのお気に入り選手の#カワサキがいなくなるのは淋しいけれど、"ありがとう、また近いうちに"」
「レイエスの復帰で大喜びではあるけど、カワサキを(ブルージェイズに)戻してくれ! ブルージェイズは2人ともキープするべきだ!」

などなど、川崎との別れを惜しむ声が大量にヒット。ここまで愛された日本人選手がかつていただろうか!?

なお、ギボンズ監督は「カワサキを落とすのは厳しい決断だった。しかしリリーフを残す必要があったんだ」とコメントしつつ「彼は戻ってくる」と付け加え、早いタイミングでの復帰の可能性も匂わせているが...。

さて川崎本人はというと、ファンに対し「自分はラッキーだった。いつ降格させられるかわからない日本人選手を応援してくれて、本当に感謝している」と非常に真摯なコメント。しかし記者に「ファンに最後のメッセージを」と求められたのに、「アイムハングリー」と答えるなど、相変わらずのド天然っぷりで周囲を笑顔にしていた。



まさに愛されまくりのムネリン、本人もそのつもりだろうが、1日でも早く昇格できるよう頑張ってもらいたいものだ。ガーヒー!
