    Ichiro Thread

    I just figured that with all of the different ichiro threads floating around, it was about time Ichiro was given a specific thread just for himself. This thread is for anything "Ichiro".

    I'll start it off by stating that Ichiro just had another amazing night (or day actually), he went 3-4 with a leadoff homerun in the first and 2 runs.

    He is now batting .362 with 185 hits in 116 games (on pace for 253 hits in 159 games - so probably no hits record but pretty close). He is now just 15 hits away from being the first player to have 200 hits in their first 4 seasons.

    Just as a side note, ICHIRO is leading the mariners in Slugging pct!!!

    Is there anything this guy can't do? It is only the 2rd inning and he is already 2-2 with (get this) another leadoff homerun in the first inning, 2 runs, and 3 RBI.

    Not bad, but there are still 6 more innings to play.

    At his current pace (take that for what you will), Ichiro is now on track for a record 262 hits this year...

    According to my calculation he's on pace for 259 (he's played in 116 of 118 Mariner games).

    33 hits in August so far (.516 avg) puts him in good shape for another 50-hit month.

    He's hitting .486 since the all-star break.

    Is the record for hits in a season 257? He would have to maintain a blistering pace for the remainder of the season.

    September has been Ichiro's least productive month (.283) over his first 3 seasons.

    To wrap up the day, Ichiro went 4-4 with a leadoff HR, 2 runs, and 5 RBI!!!

    He now has a .366 Avg, .408 OBP, .456 Slg, 189 Hits, 72 Runs, 20 2B, 4 3B, 6 HR, 44 RBI, 35 BB, 28 SB, and 235 TB. Not a bad year for anyone, and it's only 2/3 of the way through.

    Well Ichiro is out on a scary note today, after going 0-1 in the first, he gets hit in the head with a pitch in the third - I sure hope he is all right, but when things like this happen, you just never know. Let's hope the Mariner's use this as a reason to win.

    Yeah that was nasty! I heard he has a mild concussion. Here's to a speedy recovery!

    The article I read says he suffered a mild concussion and is doubtful for Thursday. Even if he only misses a game or two, it might be just enough to prevent him from getting another 50-hit month. I guess this too is just part of the game, though. I hope he'll be OK by game time tomorrow.

    I know it has been mentioned before, but what do you think it will take for Ichiro to make it to the HOF?

    Personally I think I will just take him playing the requisite 10 years, even if he slows down some.

    Luckily with the game getting rained out yesterday, and with Ichiro likely playing today, he will not have lost another game of play, as the game will be made up as a double header later - and the last time Ichiro was in a double header, he went 6-6 (5-5 and 1-1).

    Well the Mariner's lost again, but Ichiro had another fair night.

    In his first game since getting beaned in the head (actually he didn't miss any games because the last one was rained out), he went 3-4 with 1 run - not bad.

    His average is now up to.369 and he is on pace for 256 hits in 159 games - he could do it but it will be close.

    Is this guy from this planet?

    I was going to wait till the end of the game to post, but already Ichiro has a single double and triple in today's game so far.

    In other news Bonds went 4-4 today to raise his average to .372. He's from a different galaxy apparantly.

    So the Mariner's lose another close one (whooda thunk?), but (as if I even have to say) Ichiro still had a tremendous day.

    The final for him was:

    4-7 with 2 R, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 7 TB, and 2 RBI

    Ichiro 4 MVP!!!

    He now has 196 hits, 75 R, .372 BA, .413 OBP, .465 Slg, and 245 TB

    With his run total getting up there too, he could be the first player not only to have 200 hits in the first 4 seasons, but to have 200 hits and 100 runs.

    Ichiro also has over 100 RC this season - on pace for ~134

    He is now on pace for 259 hits this season, and if he keeps this tear up, he could even get 258 hits in 154 games - i.e. no asterisk next to his name.

    Since the day before I started this thread, over 5 games, Ichiro has:

    Raised his average up 13 points to .372( by batting .700!!! this week), had 14 hits (in only 20 AB), 7 R, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 HR (both leadoff HR's in 1st innings), 8 RBI, 23 TB, 0 SO!!!, 2 BB, 3 SB.

    This all with only playing in 4 full games out of the 5, as he got hit in the head, and he still came back and has done as much damage.

    If that does not deserve another player of the week award I do not know what does

    WOW. If he can keep this up, he'll be flirting with .400 by the last two weeks of the season.

    The final - Ichiro went 1-5 (although he did reach on a fielder's choice in his last at bat - almost like 2 hits). At least the Mariner's won.

    Ichiro is still on pace to get 258 hits in 159 games.

    Sorry I took so long to report, but for yesterday's game, Ichiro only went 1-4, as the Mariner's were slaughtered by Lou Piniella and Devil Rays 9-0. Let's hope Ichiro (and the Mariner's as a whole) do better tonight.

    As a side note, it is kind nice that Piniella will be there for Buhner's induction ceremony into the Mariner's HOF (even if he is on the wrong bench).

    Ichiro went 1-4 last night, but tonight with 199 hits, he is looking at becoming the 1st player to have 200 hits in each of his first 4 seasons. Good Luck

    Yesterday Ichiro went 0-4 with 1 run

    Tonight, Ichiro was 0-4 going into the ninth. He has not had 2 consecutive 0 hit nights since April 28th and 29th. So sitting at 199 hits, and being the leadoff man in the bottom of the ninth, what does he do? Hits a first pitch home run to right center field, to become the 1st player to have 200 hits in each of their first four seasons - and he did it with, as long-time Mariners announcer Rick Rizz puts it, "with flair".

    If Ichiro keeps up pace (or even if he slows down a bit), these are some categories that he will have been top ten/top3/led in in his 4 seasons:

    BA - top ten 4/top three 2/led 2
    OBP - 2/1/0
    Games - 1/0/0
    At bats - 4/4/2
    Runs - 3/1/0
    Hits - 4/4/2
    Total bases - 1/0/0
    Times on Base - 3/0/0
    3B - top ten 3/1/0
    SB - 4/2/1

    Thumbs up He's done it again! 50 hits in August!

    And with 2 more games to go. I think that no one has ever had 3 50-hit months in one year, correct?
