Ichiro Watch

Aren't you glad there's no game tomorrow?

Ichiro started off tonight's game with a solid hit into left field. A single, but that's fine. That's hit number 244. Fourteen more hits will break the record.

The next milestone is Sisler's 1922 record of 246 hits. Again, he could reach that tonight. Like last night, it's incredibly unlikely. But then, look what happened last night...

The next milestone after Sisler's 1922 would be Ty Cobb's 1911 record of 248 hits. Ichiro would have to equal last night's amazing feat to tie that record tonight. Not freakin' likely.
