Ichiro Gets 200th Hit for an 8th Consecutive Season . . .

. . . and in so doing ties Wee Willie Keeler's 107-year-old record. I hate that Ichiro, one of his era's most interesting and incredible players and a master of the lost art of the infield hit, is stuck on such an awful team. The one year that Ichiro's Mariners were really good—2001, his rookie season when they set a record with 116 wins—the team was overshadowed by 9/11 and Barry Bonds hitting a record 73 home runs. Anyway, congratulations are in order for my favorite baseball player, even if he is on a last-place team.
