    Ichiro Suzuki reached the major leagues at age 27, after playing nine seasons in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball league. He’s furiously making up for lost time in his compilation of incredible major-league statistics. Ichiro notched his 200th hit of the season on Thursday, giving him 10 200-hit seasons out of 10 seasons total. He’s led the majors in hits in six of his seasons and is 10 ahead of anyone in that category this season; during his decade of play, he has 323 more hits than runner-up Derek Jeter. And Ichiro already shares the all-time record for 200-hit seasons with...

    Housing market decline hits Ichiro's mansion Ichiro's Issaquah mansion, yours for just $1.75 million. By KOMO Staff ISSAQUAH, Wash. -- The decline in the local housing market isn't just hitting the modest homes. The pool of high-end home buyers is shrinking as well. Former Mariners' pitcher Jamie Moyer just put his Magnolia mansion up for sale at $8.9 million. The seven-bedroom Tudor is one of the most expensive listings in Seattle, and about $6 million more than the Moyers paid. Ichiro Suzuki didn't field many offers for his original asking price of $3.2 million for his Issaquah mansion. The M's...

    SEATTLE -- Three generations of the George Sisler family came to Safeco Field on Friday to witness -- and applaud -- the end of an 84-year-old Major League record dear to their hearts. The family patriarch set the all-time single-season hit record in 1920 when he had 257 hits for the St. Louis Browns. Bill Terry challenged the record in 1929 with 254 hits and Lefty O'Doul made a run the following year, also ending up with 254 hits. But Sisler's record has rested comfortably ever since -- until this season. Mariners right fielder Ichiro Suzuki used speed, bat control,...

    As they get closer to their season opener in Japan, the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners are jittery. They're not the only ones - with war possible, major league baseball is wondering whether now's the time to play ball so far from home. There were no plans Monday for the teams to call off their trip to Tokyo. The A's and Mariners are supposed to leave in a couple of days and scheduled to play a two-game series beginning March 25. But commissioner Bud Selig and baseball officials were busy talking to the State Department, the FBI and other government...
