I was just taking a look at his brief career in MLB and in 9 years has collected 2,030 hits, which is basically averaging 225 hits per year. If he plays for 5 more years and maintains his average he'll be over 3,000 hits.

The quickest to get to 3,000 hits was Ty Cobb with 2,135 games and I think Ichiro would shatter that mark.

Pete Rose's record of 4256 might be out of reach, I didn't realize he is already 36!

What do you guys think about his chances of 3,000 and the rest of his career?

Unless something really crazy happens, he will reach it with no problems. He's apparently one of the best, if not the best, conditioned players in the game, which means he can probably play into his 40's. Just imagine what kind of numbers he could have had, had he been here since his early 20's. Incredible.

Exactly, he came here when he was 25, and if you figure him coming here at the age of 20 or 21 he could almost be if not past 3,000 already.

If he played his entire career here, he would probably break Rose's record.

I completely agree, considering he's already over 3,000 career hits if you include his Japanese league stats.

I read he said he is going to start pitching soon, for what its worth. I couldn't tell if he was serious.

Ichiro is my favorite player in the game, and my second favorite player isn't even really close.

I think he breaks 3,000 pretty easily.
