Seattle Mariners Congratulations to Steve Wulf for his excellent article on the efforts to sell the Seattle Mariners to an ownership group headed by a Japanese businessman (An Outside Pitch, Feb. 10). Unlike the majority of media, which have used this issue as fuel for the protectionist fire currently burning in the U.S., Wulf points out the irony that makes this issue so simple: The preference for local ownership is to provide stability. The Baseball Club of Seattle would keep the Mariners in Seattle and provide the best ownership they have ever had.CHARLIE MAHONEY Harrisburg, Pa.

Translation
I am curious to know the translation of the Japanese characters on the illustration of Ken Griffey Jr. by Kinuko Craft (An Outside Pitch, Feb. 10). While the artist's red signature mark seems to be a clever reworking of Seattle Mariners, I can't be sure. Do the characters in the upper lefthand corner represent an editorial comment? If so, I hope you'll share it with your readers.

?The characters you refer to translate into " Ken Griffey Jr." in the left column and " Seattle Mariner" in the right. The red mark in the lower righthand corner is Kinuko Craft's seal, and the characters are the artist's name.—ED.
