Ichiro banged out his 1500th MLB Career hit. (http://seattle.mariners.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20070729&content_id=2117275&vkey=news_sea&fext=.jsp&c_id=sea) He was the third fastest to reach 1500 hits. The two people that reached that mark faster were Al Simmons and George Sisler.

He turns 34 in October; I would say that if he stays healthy Ichiro could get to 3.000.

He keeps himself in great shape, so I don't see any reason why he wouldn't stay healthy. *knocking on wood*

This is good news - I just reunited with my man crush in the WSI Roto 1 Keeper League! :gulp:

If you count his Japan totals, he would be looking at 3,000 in a couple years. Assuming he stays healthy and was as effective in MLB as he was in Japan, he could have made a serious charge at Rose.

I said Ichiro could be considered a HoF player - and asked if you'd vote for him if we only had this part of his career to consider.

Me - I'd vote for him. If he'd played MLB the whole time, he'd be flirting with 3000 right now.

1500 hits in less than 7 seasons. Uh, yeah, he's a hall of famer.

I wouldn't say right now, but if he breaks 2000 (pretty much guaranteed), I would say that is enough.

He's a first ballot hall of famer. Ichiro is a career .332 hitter, and holds the record for most hits in a single season. Also, he is outstanding defensively and an excellent baserunner.

Yeah he's first ballot for me, no doubt. Even if he didn't play in Japan he's still one of the best ballplayers we've seen in quite some time.
