Saw some of this last night.
I didn’t have a favorite, but I saw some really good baseball.
It’s a nice idea to have an international baseball tournament. It’s tough to have it during spring training with a hodge podge of players, as opposed to an all-star team. At least the Americans didn’t field an all-star team of the best we have to offer.
Suzuki needs to be kicked out of the USA. He is taking a multi million dollar job from a deserving american when he plays for the Seattle Mariners.
Please tell us you are joking.
Ichiro Suzuki is one of the best baseball players in the world - Seattle is VERY lucky to have him. Ten's of thousands of Japanese citizens have come to Seattle to watch him play.
Ichiro Suzuki has been a minor ‘boom’ to the Seattle economy.
Ichiro Suzuki currently holds the record for most hits in a season: 261, and most seasons with more than 200 hits: 7.
He is a world class talent and we are lucky to have him!
Now it is whiny ass liberal boobs who whine if they are not making 250 million a year.
Do not get me started on the Yankees. Which I actually used to love watching. Jackson, Hunter, Mercer, Chambliss.
Why did the Koreans pitch to Ichiro, who was already 3 for 3, in the 10th inning with a base open and 2 outs?
1907: 212 hits
1909: 216 hits
1911: 248 hits
1912: 226 hits
1915: 208 hits
1916: 201 hits
1917: 225 hits
1922: 211 hits
1924: 211 hits
And if they had a 162-game schedule back then, he'd have 6-7 more.
I like Ichiro, and think he's one of the best pure hitters of our time, but he has a lot more advantages than the earlier guys (including getting to face my Royals pitching staff for the past 7 years).
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki matched Willie Keeler’s major league record of eight straight 200-hit seasons Wednesday night, beating out on infield single in the eighth inning for his third hit against Kansas City.
I hope he will tie Ty Cobb this season.
I agree about the extra games...but pitching is better now, too.
Hey, at least the Royals...at least the Royals...uuh, uuh. Well, the Mariners weren't too hot last year either.
A good 2009 MLB season to you.
