He had 1,278 hits in Japan and now has 2,702 hits in MLB and is just 20 hits away from 4, 000 hits at age 39. His average year in MLB is .320 batting average, 100 runs scored, 218 hits, 38 SB's. At 5'9" and 165lbs he has been a top defensive outfielder with one of the most accurate and strongest throwing arms in the game. He runs out every groundball at full speed, is a leader in the clubhouse, and has been ejected from a game a total of 1 time in 22 years. With all of this going on we really don't hear too much about Ichiro. Since he is about to reach 4,000 hits I would really like to hear your opinion as to what you think about him and his contribution to MLB.

Should the Yankees, or any other team, sign him and give him a chance to pass Bonds?

Denton True Young, nickname the Cyclone, is considered by many to be the greatest pitcher of all time with his 511 career wins but he also holds the record for career games lost at 316 and neither record will ever be broken. Joe Tinker is the Tinker of "Baseball's Sad Lexicon" more popularly known as "Tinker to Evers to Chance. Very few fans today know that Joe Tinker and Johnny Evers did not speak to each other for decades beginning with an on-field fight over a cab fare in 1905.

    Longtime USA today baseball writer Mel Antonen said he thinks Mark McGwire's admission to steroid use may help get Roger Maris into the Hall of Fame. Maris held the single season home run record for 37 years until McGwire broke the record as did Bonds and Sosa after that. Since all three of these players are linked to drug use this brings Maris back into the picture. Antonen believes that Maris was an honest player and deserves to be remembered for what he did. Do you agree with Antonen or do you believe his career numbers were just not enough to get him there and the McGwire, Sosa, and Bonds issues have no relevance for HOF consideration?
