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.
