    • WTF...Ichiro was safe from Mirabelli's tag as the ball never touched him, Ichiro slided early and knew he didn't beat it out and was smart enough and jump over to touch the home plate...I can't believe the idiot ump still called him out, oh well, official blew calls here and there every game in every event.

      • After an amazing april, Ichiro fell quite a bit in May, only hitting .288, but that is nothing compared to his June so far, where he is only hitting .167 and has yet to have an XBH or a SB! :noidea :grouchy

        One thing I have noticed is that he has been slumping more and more, the closer he gets to 1000 hits. Now this could just be a total coincidence, but who knows. If that is true, then maybe the opposite will be true: the further past 1000 hits, the better he will play? Well he should be able to get that one more hit in his next game, which will be tomorrow as the team has today off.

        • Taking away last year's stats, Suzuki has been on a steady decline, average wise, since his rookie campaign

            • Yesterday, Ichiro had his 1,000th hit in the Major Leagues!

              Maybe now that he does not have that pressure, he will start to pick it up (so he will actually be hitting over .300).

              • It could just be a coincidence, but now that the pressure for Ichiro to get to his 1,000th hit (again) is off, he has begun to pick it up.

                he has hit 2 HR's in the last 3 days, and in the last two (yesterday and tonight), he is 5-9 with 1 Run, 4 RBI, and 1 SB (it had been nearly 3 weeks since his last one).

                So congrats, and keep it up.

                  Ichiro is having a bad drought lately. It happens. I have faith he'll get out of it and come back to have a respectable season eventually. The way it appears to me is that he's watching too many pitches and going too deep in the count, because Ichiro actually hits better when he's a free swinger. His career batting average is above .400 when he puts either the first or second pitch in play. And the deeper in the count he goes, the further his batting average drops.

                  • I go away for a little while, and look what happens. This thread was almost lost in the depths of the BB-fever archives - just couldn't let that happen, so here are some thoughts.


                    Ichiro now has 5 consectutive years with 200 hits only two (?) others have accomplished that same feat. Admitedly, he cut it close, and halfway through the season, I wasn't so sure that he could (although I never lost faith). But due to the increase in power (Sexson), He was able to pick his Run total back up to 111 again - So if Beltre improves (I know i'm being a little pesimisstic here), I would expect better results next year.

                    He showed a little more pop this year, with 15 home runs, and even legged out a MLB career high in triples (12).

                    His overall popularity remained high, and along with a good first half (due to his 1st month), he attended his 5th (consecutive) all-star game, and just recently was awarded his 5th Gold Glove.

                    So sure, he didn't win a batting title, but he still did his job - get lots of hits and score lots of runs.

                    Along with a good bit of baserunning (another year of 30+ SB - 80% success rate), and good defense, I wasn't disappointed.

                    Here's to next year!

                      LOL.

                      Done. Assuming we can keep the league going, I'll make the deal.

                      • Well, it's official, Ichiro will be playing for Japan in the WBC. Pretty much everyone figured he would, but he was just waiting for a "formal invitation".

                        • Does anyone know what the Japanese lineup will look like?

                          1. Ichiro
                          2.
                          3.
                          .
                          .
                          ?

                          • Well, Ichiro is having a decent start to the WBC, with 4 runs, 2 SB's, and a first inning, leadoff HR in today's US vs. Japan game. It's good to see him coming along, although his BA is a little low, but this is a small sample size, so that doesn't worry me. I like to see him aggressive on the bases, and would love to see him steal more this year, he may be losing some speed, but he is a smart runner, and he still is fast, so he needs to use his smarts AND speed to help us out in that department.

                              Ichiro is playing great. Too bad they got that bad call against them. I'm not saying the Japanese would have won the game, but you never know. You don't like to see a game decided by a bum call.
