    The breakdown of Ichiro's 3,000 hits by team:

    Seattle Mariners 2,533 hits (11 1/2 seasons); New York Yankees 311 hits; (2 1/2) seasons, 156 hits (1 2/3 seasons).

    In a sense he'll always be a Mariner, but it's been a joy to see him make slow, but steady progress and ultimately achieve his goal for us fans in Florida. I tune in to Marlins games each night to see how he'd doing. That was an attraction for me even last year, before things started to come together for the Marlins as a team this year.

    Missed this the other day, but congrats to Ichiro on his 500th Stolen Base!

    He is currently sitting 53 hits away from 3000 and has been decent in his limited role so far this season and should be able to reach that mark this year!

    Ichiro has the 2nd most hits from age 27 on (when he joined the league), behind only Pete Rose.

    He currently has 4225 professional hits, just behind Pete's 4256, also a number he should surpass this year.

    His defense is so so at this point. Batting average really is not a good stat. He does not walk and has no power. He has a very empty average.

    No. I am fair about players who should have retired years ago.

    I enjoy watching the older guys that still perform. Mo and Andy fit that bill.

    I grew up halfway between Philly and NY so followed the Yanks and the Phils. I hated watching Carlton and Rose in their last years. I hated the way Torre overused Bernie at the end.

    Even Stephen Drew can have a good game. Suzuki is still terrible.

    Hey, NJ Yankee Fan: Ichiro just went 4 for 8 against your Yankees. That hardly fits the description of a player that according to you "should have retired five years ago".

    Ichiro plays for the Marlins now, not the Mariners. You should probably post about his current situation in either the Marlins forum or the Current Events forum. He hasn't played for the Mariners since July of 2012.

    2 Games played now and Zero starts for Ichiro with the Marlins. Was this a bad decision on his part to sign with them or was Miami the only team that showed any interest him this past winter. In his place, I'd have held out for an American league team where he could get additional at bats as a DH.
    His chances of reaching 3,000 hits even if he plays in 2016 are beginning to dim.

    That's an absurd comment. Ichiro may not reach 3,000 hits thanks in large part to your team the Yankees playing him so infrequently. I'd play him instead of Gardner in LF.
    He's not going to play 10 more years, obviously but in the right circumstance he could reach 3,000 hits in two more years and possibly only one more season. I'll bet Joe Maddon and the Rays would love to have him be their everyday DH and several other teams would like him in their lineup every day. If he reaches 2,850 hits by the end of this season then he'd have a real chance to reach 3,000 hits in one more season, by the end of 2015 if he gets enough at bats.
    Anybody that would love to have him can. He is terrible. He should have retired 5 years ago. The idea of plating him over Gardner is laughable.
