One surprise (and one money) reason Marlins want Ichiro back | New York Post

With the healthy return of Giancarlo Stanton, will Ichiro be able to get enough AB to reach 3000 hits? He has 89 hits in 368 AB this year. Although he should get a few more in the last couple of weeks, he’ll probably need about 60 hits next year. If he hits .250, he’ll need 240 at bats to get there.

Ichiro Suzuki’s Hitting Remains Constant Amid Changes -

He has 2,849 hits in the majors and is closing in on 3,000. He probably needs another season to do it, but Suzuki is exceptionally fit, and motivated. Asked how badly he wants to reach 3,000, he responded this way:

“That question is really similar to ‘Do you want to get a hit this at-bat?’ or ‘Do you want to go to the World Series?’ ” said Suzuki, who is 5 for 21 this season. “You want to get a hit every time you get up there, and everybody would love to go to the World Series. And I also know in one at-bat, you can’t get two hits. Of course that’s something I would want to do; that’s a given.”

The team, the league and the bats have changed. The pursuit rolls on.
