"most seasons with more than 200 hits: 7."

Ty Cobb:
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).

Thank you, I misspoke (wrote incorrectly).

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 least the Royals...uuh, uuh. Well, the Mariners weren't too hot last year either.

A good 2009 MLB season to you.
