I bet Ichiro would have had 4000 hits if he had been in the MLB the whole time. The only question in my mind is when his team would have called him up. He'd need to be a regular by 22.
Imagine him having his best seasons now, with so much of the power sucked out of the game. He'd finish in the top 3 in MVP voting every year.
Yeah, he's a memorable figure. I love just watching him catch a routine fly ball. Dude's got style to burn.
It's still a strange little jolt to see him in pinstripes, but at the same time, it feels like he's been here as long as that other former Mariner.
2) definitely a joy to appreciate him every day, even at this stage of his career.
 yea ichiro is a stylish mf.
 i wonder if he started in mlb if he would have been pushed to hit for more power.
1) He has more hits than anyone in the number iof years played in MLB
2) Only guy to have 200+ hits a year for 10 straight years
....or so they say.
