    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.

          Ichiro is going to get one last chance to get his second hit of the game, so far he is 1-4

            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

                      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?

                        I could break the numbers down into the individual games for today, but I am lazy so I won't, but here goes. The numbers for both of the games of the doubleheader today (the first at Safeco Field) are as follows:

                        4 H in 10 AB, 3 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 SB (I also should mention the 3 SO's, but I don't want to)

                        So all in all, not a bad night, oh and did I mention, yeah he did reach 50 hits for this month, and yeah that's his 3rd 50+ hit month this year, and yeah he is the only person known to have three 50 hit months in a year.

                        P.S. With his stolen base tonight, this is his 4th consecutive year with 30+ SB's

                          Just out of curiosity, since there's two more games left, does anyone know the all-time record for hits in a month?


                          • #28
                            The finals for today are as follows:

                            Ichrio went - 3-4, 3 R, 1 RBI, 1HR

                            That means he now has 53 hits this month, needs one more to tie the record for hits in a month since 1972 (by Rod Carew, and tied by Alex Rodriguez).

                            In 129 games, Ichiro has already surpassed his hits total from 2002 (208 in 157 games).

                            This is now his 4th year with at least 8 HR's (may not be a lot, but at least it is something)

                            Also is 1 RBI away from having his fourth 50+ RBI season

                            (I am sorry, but I had incorrect information here - check my next post for revised information)

                            He is also back on pace to get 258 hits (in 159 games), and 100 runs

                            Oh, and the Mariner's won 5-4 over the KC Royals

                              Well, it looks like the Mariner's are finally putting it together.

                              Ichiro (who has had it together all along) wen: 3-5 with 2 RBI

                              That means he has 56 hits in August. He also has tied his 2002 total for RBI, and his 2003 total hits and RBI (he has had at least 50 RBI, all 4 years).

                              So, his August finals are as follows:

                              123 AB, 56 H, 21 R, 3 2B, 3 3B, 4 HR, 15 RBI, 77 TB, 6 BB, 4 SB, 1 HBP, .455 BA, .484 OBP, and .626 SLG.

                                Let's start the Sisler Countdown!

                                Sisler Countdown: 45

                                If Ichiro can follow up 56 in August with 45 in September, he will tie Sisler's single-season hit record!
