Ichiro for the Hall of Fame?

ichiro_533A few of the night owls on the blog had an interesting discussion after the game last night.

Is Ichiro Suziki a Hall of Famer?

Forget what he did in Japan. It’s hard to take any league seriously where Kei Igawa was a star. You can speculate all you want about what Ichiro would have done had he been in the majors. But he wasn’t.

Focus instead on the nine seasons he has been in the majors. To me, he’s a slam-dunk Hall of Famer. Consider:

• Ichiro has been an All-Star nine times.

• He has won eight Gold Gloves.

• He is heading for his ninth consecutive season with 206+ hits. He also has gone eight straight years with 100+ runs.

• He is a career .333 hitter with a .378 on-base percentage. Among active players, only Albert Pujols has a higher average and that could change depending on the day.

• Ichiro has played in an amazing 1,387 of the 1,411 games Seattle has played since he arrived in 2001.

• Ichiro played in the postseason once, in 2001. He hit .421 in 10 games.

• He has clearly been one of the best hitters, base-runners and defensive players in the game since the day he arrived.

Ichiro is 35 and is signed through 2012. By then he could have roughly 2,600 hits and 1,250 runs scored. By any measurement, he is one of the best players in the game. That he spent the first half of his career in Japan is merely an addendum on his plaque in Cooperstown, not a valid reason to keep him out.

I’ll admit to some bias here. Ichiro is my favorite player in the majors and one of the most interesting athletes I’ve ever interviewed. He’s one of the few guys who can look cool just catching a routine fly ball.

If the Hall of Fame is supposed to recognize the best players, Ichiro has to be in.

    I’m glad that the Yankees didn’t get Ian Snell before the trade deadline. There were a lot of folks who wanted to see him in Pinstripes based on his recent minor league pitching stint, but after wathcing him last night I think Cashman and the Yankee organization did better for us by getting Chad Gauguin.

    Last Week: 5
    Boston Red Sox
    Is it just me or do the Red Sox get into more brawls than anyone since the days of John L. Sullivan? In just the past few years alone, there’s been some serious throwdowns with the Yankees (more than once), Rays (more than once) and, earlier this year, the Angels. You can now add the Tigers to the Red Sox’s fight ledger, but at least the Red Sox are showing a little fight somewhere these days. They’ve already had three losing streaks in the second half — one of five games and another of six games — and will be in for a battle for the wild card as well as the AL East the rest of the way.

    Yes, Ichiro is a Hall of Famer…. assuming he plays 1 more year to get the minimum 10 years requirement. He had been one of the best hitters in the game since he came to the US.

  5. Stephen August 14th, 2009 at 12:06 pm

    I agree..a no-brainer for the Hall.

    He may be a diva, but he’s got the first-class talent to back it up.

  6. Zero August 14th, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    Ichiro hasnt ever had any serious health problems and hes in good enough shape that he could have a productive 7-10 years left and he has shown no signs of decline. Hes close to 2000 hits right now. If he can play 7-10 more years he could be a 3500 hit guy.

  7. Cash is King August 14th, 2009 at 12:08 pm

    Yes, he’s a HOF player.

  8. Pasqua August 14th, 2009 at 12:08 pm

    I’d say Hall, but I can’t stand it when All-Star Game appearances are used as a watermark. It’s really irrelevant because of both the nature of the game and the nature of the way in which players get in.

  9. Five Iron From Fenway August 14th, 2009 at 12:10 pm

    Yankees in double secret draft signing mode:
    Does anyone have any update on who will get signed by the Yanks? The deadline is Monday and thoroughly scouring the net leads to very little information other than Heathcott wants 2mm but will most likely sign, Murphy is likely to sign, Cotham wants to sign and says they are close.
    SJ you are usually plugged in – any thoughts on who puts pen to paper over the weekend.

  10. DT - OPPC member (blood type - Positive) August 14th, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    If Ichiro and Jeter both made it into the Hall on the same ballot – they would have to close down the NYS Thruway and Route 88 on HOF weekend. Cooperstown would be a zoo.

  11. Patrick August 14th, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    “I’ll admit to some bias here. Ichiro is my favorite player in the majors and one of the most interesting athletes I’ve ever interviewed. He’s one of the few guys who can look cool just catching a routine fly ball. ”

    So true.

    I also love his funny quotes. My favorite Ichiro quote:

    “To tell the truth, I’m not excited to go to Cleveland, but we have to,” Ichiro said through an interpreter. “If I ever saw myself saying I’m excited going to Cleveland, I’d punch myself in the face, because I’m lying.”

  12. Uncle Ellsworth August 14th, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    CB and Mo were having the Ichiro discussion. More interesting was the back and forth they had about statistics and abtractions.

  13. 86w183 August 14th, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    I’m not sure it’s quite a slam dunk yet. When I discuss whether or not someone is “IN” I base it on them never playing another game.

    Has he done enough to get in as of today? In my opinion, no. He does not have 2,000 hits, he has not scored 1,000 runs. His OPS-plus is 117, which is nice but not awe inspiring.

    He is indeed an outstanding outfielder and that has to count in his favor as do his 338 stolen bases.Still, a guy with no power numbers has to reach higher milestones. Now is gets past 25-hundred hits, 12-hundred runs and say 500 SB then he would be in.

    Still has work to do.

  14. Cash is King August 14th, 2009 at 12:13 pm

    I think the Yankees sign Heathcott, Murphy, Cotham, Lyons, Meade, Stoneburner, Thompson and maybe Mitchell.

  15. Yada Yada Yada Molina August 14th, 2009 at 12:14 pm

    In less than five years, the great Ichiro should be collecting his 3,000th hit in the majors.

    Next stop, Cooperstown.

  16. vinny-b (thankful to have Girardi in charge) August 14th, 2009 at 12:14 pm

    Ichiro is a first-ballot HOF’er.

    he is on a short list, of the greatest players/hitters i’ve ever seen.

    among them:

    tony gwynn
    rickey henderson
    paul molitor
    george brett

    Ichiro fits into this above group.

  17. Ed H. August 14th, 2009 at 12:15 pm

    Ichiro’s stats are going to be where they need to be for the Hall and he’s certainly a fine player. I guess that I don’t see him having the impact on games, or upon the game as a whole, as I look for as a HOF guy. He’s not a slugger and that’s fine. Even with his BA and his steals though, he doesn’t disrupt a game in the way that a Rickey Henderson or even a Willie McGee did. I guess for now, I’d have to say that he’s borderline for the Hall. The jury is still out with me.

  18. Dr. Cox August 14th, 2009 at 12:16 pm

    Jeter is a more than a man, but less than a god.

    Jeter is all that is right with humanity.

    Jeter beat cancer…literally, with a bat.

    Tim Tebow asked Derek Jeter, not god, to bless his girlfriend’s womb.

    Fathers beg Derek Jeter to sleep with their daughters.

  19. 86w183 August 14th, 2009 at 12:16 pm

    In five years he might be in that group, Vinny but not yet. His career stats pale in comparison because it’s only his ninth season. Three-to-five more years will get it done but I can’t consider him “IN” at this point.

  20. Cash is King August 14th, 2009 at 12:16 pm

    “I’m not sure it’s quite a slam dunk yet. When I discuss whether or not someone is “IN” I base it on them never playing another game.”

    I think you’re wrong because if something tragically happened in which he couldn’t play another ML game, the voters will vote him in just like did with Koufax and his shorten career. Ichiro’s consistency throughout his ML career is just too much to ignore.

  21. Mike B August 14th, 2009 at 12:17 pm

    your favorite player is Ichiro?! I feel betrayed.

  22. JobaJr August 14th, 2009 at 12:18 pm

    I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw the tags… Ichiro..Albert Pujols……..Kei Igawa.

  23. Five Iron From Fenway August 14th, 2009 at 12:18 pm

    Cash – that would be a great haul.
    Several of the picks have absolutely dominated the Cape this year and from some of my reading the Yankees really use that as a barometer of a player.

  24. MikeBoston August 14th, 2009 at 12:18 pm

    Waste of time, he’s a nobrainer HOF…on to important matters, why the hell is joba being skipped next week and not this week??? Why go with mitre in fenway when you can have joba pitching there, where last year he shut them out through 7+, that makes no sense! Unless they tinker so it can be cc, aj and ap in fenway i don’t like this 1 bit!

  25. vinny-b (thankful to have Girardi in charge) August 14th, 2009 at 12:18 pm

    Ed: don’t forget his glove. And his arm. Aside from HR’s, he is the complete package.

  26. dadofjft August 14th, 2009 at 12:18 pm

    To me Ichiro is a no doubt Hall of Famer, but while I agree with you, Dan, that All-Star appearances have to be taken with a grain of salt, if a player is a consistant year-in, year-out All-Star, that’s an indication of the high regard in which he is held.

    A smattering of All-Star appearances might not mean all that much, but if you make the team 90% of the time I think that means you’re probably in the conversation for the Hall.

  27. Tom B August 14th, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    why do people reference all-star selections as a basis for determining HoF worthiness? He plays in seattle, how many of those 9 seasons was he the only representative from that team (which is required)? I’m not saying this disparages Ichiro in any way, he’s a great player and IMO a lock for the HoF, but for other players when they bring this up and it makes no sense.

  28. Rishi August 14th, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    From Buster:

    4. In less than two months, the Baseball Writers’ Association of America will cast their votes for the awards, and if the Yankees continue to play well, you would have to think that Joe Girardi would be the favorite to be the AL Manager of the Year.

  29. Mo August 14th, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    I think he is in, as I said last night. Me and CB disagreed on the quality of his case: I don’t think he is a first ballot, all-time great, CB does.

  30. 86w183 August 14th, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    I disagree. Koufax was far and away the greatest pitcher in the game for several years. Ichiro has never been the best player in the game.

    I didn’t realize this discussion was a prediction as to whether or not he will get in… I thought we were discussing if he has already done enough to guarantee enshrinement in our opinion. While it may well be that he’d get the votes if his career ended today he would not get mine.

  31. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Montero Fanaticus Primus August 14th, 2009 at 12:20 pm

    Rishi: He’d have to merit some serious consideration. Don’t know if he beats Ron Washington or Mike Sciosia, who’ve done more with less, but he’s got to be in there.

  32. vinny-b (thankful to have Girardi in charge) August 14th, 2009 at 12:21 pm

    “In five years he might be in that group, Vinny but not yet. His career stats pale in comparison because it’s only his ninth season. Three-to-five more years will get it done but I can’t consider him “IN” at this point”

    point taken. Although, considering he probably has a biological age of 25, I look for him to keep it up.

  33. CB August 14th, 2009 at 12:22 pm

    Ichiro’s game come directly out of the early 20th century.

    He plays the game very similarly to the way the great players from the dead ball era did.

    That’s part of what makes watching him play so interesting.

    If OPS/ OPS+/ Context independent stats are your gold standard for evaluating players then Ichiro doesn’t come close to being a hall of famer. He just doesn’t hit for any power and will get additionally dinged for not hitting for power as a corner OF.

    But, IMO, that using statisics too narrowly and using them reductively.

    He’s a first ballot HOF in my book. His ability to generate base hits in the modern era of highly specialized relief pitching is mind boggling.

  34. Cash is King August 14th, 2009 at 12:23 pm

    “I disagree. Koufax was far and away the greatest pitcher in the game for several years. Ichiro has never been the best player in the game.”

    He doesn’t have to be the best player in the game for the HOF voters to recognize his shortened career if something tragically happened to him. Again, his ML career numbers are just too much for most voters to ignore and they will do the right thing in the end.

    Are you implying Kei Igawa is not going into the HOF :evil:

  36. jpb1973 August 14th, 2009 at 12:24 pm

    I see that Staten Island Yankee, Neil Medchill, was 2 for 3 again last night with an HR and 3 RBI’s. Thats 11 HR’s and 33 RBI’s for him in only 48 games as a pro. I wonder when Peter Gammons is going to start talking about him as he does future Hall of Famer, Lars Anderson of the Portland Red Sox.

    I agree – didn’t expect Buster to chime in on it, though – I figure the “payroll advantage” is an automatic disqualifier in some people’s minds…

  39. haiku-man August 14th, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    Pete yes yes yes he’s a future HOFer. One of the best out of Japan,since Godzilla(take a guess as to which one)I’m talking about.

    ~Cash is King,from the previous thread,Bawstin lives for fights and so does their fan base,it’s required!
    Look at the tape with YUK walking to the dug out,the fan are standing (over the dug out area especially,) and clapping !

  40. tonyb August 14th, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    If I am voting, Ichiro is in. The man is a hit machine, a top flight outfielder with one of the best arms I’ve seen and a fantastic base runner.

    CB:

    interesting take (comparing to the dead ball era). Having read this i couldn’t help but think of a player like Willie McGee. I realize he is not in the class of Ichiro, however how do you regard him as a player? HOF worthy?

  44. 86w183 August 14th, 2009 at 12:27 pm

    To be clear I think the guy is a GREAT player and I agree with Pete that he is fun to watch play. I stop what I’m doing when he bats whether it’s in person or on TV.

    I am quite certain that I will consider him a Hall of Famer when he retires. From the looks of him he might have 5-8 more productive season ahead. Once his runs and hits total 4,000 I would consider him a mortal lock. That’s three more years at his current level of performance.

    Ichiro has 2,925 combined hits and runs and averages well over 300 combined per season.

  45. Seb August 14th, 2009 at 12:28 pm

    HOF? Shouln’t even be a question. He is a lock

  46. Greg August 14th, 2009 at 12:28 pm

    Ichiro is, without a doubt, a hall-of-famer. He has a shot at 3,000 hits and didn’t come into the league until he was 27. Wade Boggs was 24 when he came into the league. He is currently the member of the 3,000 hit club who started his career at the most advanced age. Most of the guys in it started between 19 and 21 years old.

  47. Yada Yada Yada Molina August 14th, 2009 at 12:28 pm

    One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen came sitting in the bleachers @OYS (section 39, you’re missed) and I watched in awe as Ichiro threw a dart to third base.

    It’s almost preternatural — a man who looks like he could be picked up off the ground w/one arm has so much kinetic energy in that body…just amazing.

  48. David Cone's Camera Face August 14th, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    ichiro is a no doubt hall of famer. especially since he’s obviously not a juicer lke albert probably is (duh) or even ricky henderson.

  49. JGS August 14th, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    Had he started in the majors, he would be the all-time hit king before he was done. As is, he might get to 3000 in an abbreviated career. What he and Albert have done since 2001 would merit their enshrinement if they retired today

  50. Rich August 14th, 2009 at 12:30 pm

    Ichiro is a HOFer, yes.

    But he won’t ever look “cool” until gives up on his attempt at growing anything that resembles a beard, or “cool” facial hair. He looks ridiculous with whatever he’s got goin on there.

  51. Yada Yada Yada Molina August 14th, 2009 at 12:30 pm

    *actually, he has potential energy, and it turns to kinetic when he unleashes it. My physics teacher would be ashamed.

  52. Laura - I like the new and improved Alex! He's a keeper. August 14th, 2009 at 12:31 pm

    He’s a HOF, but not a first ballot.

  53. CountryClub August 14th, 2009 at 12:31 pm

    Ichiro is your favorite player?? Really? While I appreciate the talent, I’ve always found him to be one of the more annoying players. Obviously I dont know him, but I dont know any of the MLBers. So I can only go from what I see and read and he seems like a huge prima donna.

  54. Don Capone August 14th, 2009 at 12:32 pm

    I didn’t realize there was even a debate about it. He’s a lock for the HOF. Incredible numbers.

  55. Jack O'Connell August 14th, 2009 at 12:32 pm

    without a doubt. He’s the best contact hitter of the decade by far and also one of the best fielders and baserunners.

  56. Cash is King August 14th, 2009 at 12:33 pm

    Ichiro in a way is this baseball generation’s Rod Carew or Pete Rose type.

  59. murphydog August 14th, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    Ichiro is an amazing athlete. No rings, but one AL MVP and ROY (2001) in addition to gaudy stats, the gold gloves and all the all star games. HOF? Probably, although I don’t know how much spending a career in Seattle hurts him with the rest of the sportswriters from the bigger markets.

    The way he settles into the batters’ box, pointing his bat seemingly at the pitcher, should be enough to get him into the HOF on style points alone :)

  60. ADam August 14th, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    what was up with the team mate that was overheard saying he wanted to “pinch Ichiro out”? Just curious.. wonder if there is anything to that…

  61. vinny-b (thankful to have Girardi in charge) August 14th, 2009 at 12:35 pm

    “But he won’t ever look “cool” until gives up on his attempt at growing anything that resembles a beard, or “cool” facial hair. He looks ridiculous with whatever he’s got goin on there”

    well then cool is in the eye of the beholder.

    will admit, from the time Tony Gwynn stepped down, Ichiro has been my favorite (non NYY) player. I love his game

  62. Phil August 14th, 2009 at 12:35 pm

    Ichiro will be in the Hall of Fame and should be. However; he is still overrated.

  64. 86w183 August 14th, 2009 at 12:36 pm

    Lots of you are basing your judgements on what he’s likely to accomplish. The question was based on what he’s done already.

    Is there any hitter in Cooperstown who didn’t play ten years, didn’t hit 100 HR, didn’t reach 2,000 hits and didn’t score 1,000 runs other than pitchers? The answer is no.

    His age entering MLB is irrelevant. His career has been superb but still comes short of Cooperstown as of today as far as I’m concerned.

  65. CB August 14th, 2009 at 12:37 pm

    “I realize he is not in the class of Ichiro, however how do you regard him as a player? HOF worthy?”

    No. McGee is not even remotely close to being a hall of famer.

    The reason why I say this is that he just didn’t generate that basehits and perhaps even more importantly he didn’t get on base all that much so he made a lot of outs.

    Alot of the knock on Ichiro has been that because his OBP depends so much on his batting average he would never be able to sustain it. Eventually he’s have seasons where the soft contact he creates just gets hit at people and he’ll make outs.

    So basically people were saying that Ichiro’s success was more due to “random chance” than true talent.

    And in general this is a concern with guys who get on base because of their batting average.

    But there are always exceptions and Ichiro has been a huge exeption and that’s because he’s a magician with the bat.

    The other big knock on Ichiro has been that he would never be able to keep getting hits and on base because his game depends on his legs. Well he’s 35 and hasn’t slowed down at all.

    Ichiro is an exceptional talent in so many ways. He’s unlike any player who has played in decades. He’s a player who is different in type and kind.

    McGee is not in that category.

  66. rconn23 August 14th, 2009 at 12:37 pm

    Ichiro’s an Hall of Famer… A .330 career hitter who gets 200 hits and 100 runs every year will get into Cooperstown.

    He does that for 10 to 12 years and it’s a no brainer. The gold glove caliber defense is just the icing on the cake.

    That being said, I think the legend of Ichiro kind of reaches mythic proportions.

    The whole “he could hit 30 to 40 home runs if he weanted to” doesn’t hold much water to me. He’s not selective enough of a hitter to do that.

    And using batting practice displays as proof that he could hit home runs on a regular basis is not a valid argument. There are AAA players who look like Paul Bunyon during batting practice.

    He’s also not as good a hitter as some of the players he’s often comapred to – Wade Boggs was a much better offensive player, for instance. His on-base percentage dwarfs Ichiro.

    And as a pure hitter, I don’t think he’s as good as Derek Jeter. In fact, I don’t see how that can really be up for debate.

    Ichiro doesn’t walk, and is a guy – like Boggs and Rose – who values his basehits. He tracks the numbers just like those guys.

    Unlike Jeter, I think it’s probably fair to say Ichiro may have hurt his team at times by not being more patient at the plate.

    Jeter is much better at getting on base and hits for more power.

    I’m glad that the Yankees didn’t get Ian Snell before the trade deadline. There were a lot of folks who wanted to see him in Pinstripes based on his recent minor league pitching stint, but after wathcing him last night I think Cashman and the Yankee organization did better for us by getting Chad Gauguin.
    ———————————————
    and Chad paints pretty well in the postimpressionist genre as well

    —————————————————–

    Before the trade deadline, Cashman could have gotten us a Rembrandt from Toronto but instead got us a Gauguin from San Diego…now we find out its a Gaudin…not a Gauguin. Either way its beter than getting a Snell from Pittsburgh. He did a pretty poor postimpression of a major league pitcher last night. :)

    I don’t see any way Ichiro doesn’t make the HOF. Anyone who thinks Ichiro doesn’t belong in the HOF basically believes that only players who hit HRs can make it. Because that’s really the only thing Ichiro doesn’t do.

  73. SJ44 August 14th, 2009 at 12:40 pm

    He’s a Hall of Famer. A great player who would have been even better if he played on better teams.

    Hey, anybody who has floor seat season tix for the Lakers is a HOF’er in my book.

    Seriously though, it shouldn’t even be a question ad to his HOF worthiness.

  74. Wait till we visit the Sardine Can August 14th, 2009 at 12:40 pm

    Ichiro’s awesome. Has to be a HOF’er.

    The Red Sox must be crushed right now. They take of 3 of 4 from the first place tigers, with pitching matchups not favoring them, and they don’t gain a SINGLE GAME on the Yankees.

    We’re on pace for 101 wins.

    Life is good. :-)

  75. GC August 14th, 2009 at 12:41 pm

    LOL. He’s a very good slap hitter with speed but he’s ultimately a COMPILER not what you think of as GAME CHANGER or HOF material that dominates the game. Even his compiled number are going to be FAR short going by traditional stats alone (3000 hits, etc.) All star appearances ROTF that is a popularity contest (who else has Mariners fans have to vote for). Sorry Pete.

  78. DT - OPPC member (blood type - Positive) August 14th, 2009 at 12:44 pm

    Strange –

    the NY Post had three Yankee stories up this morning. Two of them by G.King

    One story bi-line said “Joba would now probably start Sunday – more news coming today.”
    When you clicked the link – it went to the other King game recap article. I finally gave up trying to open the story.

    Now that write-up is gone completely. There are only two Yankee stories – not three.

  79. CB August 14th, 2009 at 12:45 pm

    “That being said, I think the legend of Ichiro kind of reaches mythic proportions.”

    I’d agree with that as well.

    Ichiro and Jeter are similar in the sense that it’s now to the point where the “myth” of the player gets so much attention in some quarters that it’s actually detracting from the substance of how good the player actually is.

    People who then critique the myth wind up going too far in discounting the substance.

    I never thought this could ever happen – but in a number of ways Jeter is now underrated.

  80. RCK August 14th, 2009 at 12:45 pm

    Patrick, that is a great line from Ichiro. My favorite was his comment about how if were watching his team play last year he would “probably be drinking a lot of beers and booing.”

    I use that one every time the Yankees have a string of clunkers.

  81. Wait till we visit the Sardine Can August 14th, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    “One day later and already the Yankees are changing the plans.

    Tyler Kepner first broke the news early this morning that the Yankees were considering changing their weekend pitching plans. A few hours later, George A. King III reported in The Post that Joba would start on Sunday and then get a few extra days off this week.

    According to King — and remember, this is an unconfirmed report from everyone’s favorite tabloid — the Yankees were concerned that by throwing Chad Gaudin and Sergio Mitre in back-to-back games, they would be left short-handed in the pen and with only Alfredo Aceves as a long-relief option. Mitre will get the ball on Saturday; Joba will pitch Sunday; and then Joba probably won’t start again until the Texas series at the end of the month. The Yanks may very well give him eight or nine days between starts.”

  82. Stultus Magnus August 14th, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    Ichiro is awesome, I love watching him play.

    With what he’s accomplished each season including breaking the single season hit record, I’d say he belongs.

    this is directly related to the teams he’s been on. Put him on the 2001-2009 Yankees, and you dammm right he would be a ‘game changer’

  84. foobar August 14th, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    Ichiro is already an above-average HOF’er per the Jamesian Black Ink and HOF Monitor tests…and the other two are
    just counting stats (Gray Ink and HOF Standards) which he’ll easily surpass given another couple seasons (or three).

    It’s crazy he accomplished that in only 9 major league seasons, not only is he a HOF’er, he is a clear-cut first ballot.

    As for the “all star games are meaningless” argument, what do you guys think the F in “HOF” stands for?
    HOF should be the HOUSNEHO? “hall of underrated sluggers neverone’s ever heard of”? Making all these all-star games
    only adds to one’s credentials…it means someone’s always in the public conscious: fame.

    I used to watch Japanese baseball when I was stationed in Okinawa. My opininion is that it is to MLB what college football is to the NFL. Great spectacle, hustle (EVERYONE runs out ground balls) Some playeres, like Ichiro, Matsui, Dice-K make the jump easily, others flame out.

  87. RustyJohn August 14th, 2009 at 12:50 pm

    No brainer he is a HOFer. And he has a shot at 3000 hits (why that is a milestone that is required is beyond me- after 9 seasons he’ll have more than 2000). He’s led the league in hits in six of those 9 seasons, led the league in batting average twice, and plays gold glove defense. Although 35 his workout routine (heavily relying on stretching) will enable him to play at this level for several more years without breaking down like the roided out Americans. He has indicated a desire to pitch in the majors once his days as a position player are done. I have not doubt if, in seven years, Ichiro desires to pitch he’d be an above average closer or decent starter capable of winning 15 games a season. His arm is that good.

  88. Cash is King August 14th, 2009 at 12:51 pm

  89. ANSKY August 14th, 2009 at 12:52 pm

    Ichiro’s a sure-thing first ballot Hall of Famer no mater how you slice it. If he’d started his career on this side of the Pacific, he’d be a sure-thing unanimous first ballot Hall of Famer.

    I can imagine SOME idiot with a HOF ballot might automatically think they shouldn’t give a first-ballot vote to a player who didn’t ‘make it to the majors’ until he was 27 or 28 or whatever he was, but they’ll be wrong. And they should forfiet their ballot to someone else who isn’t such a thick-headed moron.

    IMO Ichiro-san really should go in unanimously, first ballot.

  90. jake August 14th, 2009 at 12:54 pm

    No doubt.
    One of the best hitters I’ve ever seen AND one of the best outfielders. Not much in the power department, but he does everything else extraordinarily well. A howitzer of an arm.

    Ichiro has said that, after 2012, when he’s 38 and his current contract expires, he wants to pitch. Seriously. I wouldn’t put it past him.

  91. Yada Yada Yada Molina August 14th, 2009 at 12:55 pm

    when has being a prima donna or being disliked by your team mates ever entered the equation for Hall of Fame worthiness?

    it didn’t seem to adversely impact Ty Cobb.

    Ichiro averages 231 hits/yr. Hello? 231 hits annually does not a ‘compiler’ make. If he averaged, say, 150 hits and played for over 20 yrs, then he’d be considered a compiler.

    His game translates to any era in the history of the game. He’d be right at home in 1890, 1990 and presumably 2090.

  92. Chris G. August 14th, 2009 at 12:58 pm

    The one other point that Pete left out, which may go without saying, is that Ichiro is in the group of great players like Jeter or Griffey Jr. Maddux and Mussina where you’d be shoked SHOKED if they were ever connected with steriods. Condsidering the fact that so many baseball writers have taken a firm stance against ever voting in McGuire, Sosa, Bonds, or Clemens, they would have to take the opposite stance with those above question players. Even if Ichiro doesn’t make 3000 hits, he is still the best pure hitter in the league. The fact that most of his hits were slap shot singles should only help his case in this day and age.

  93. vinny-b (thankful to have Girardi in charge) August 14th, 2009 at 12:58 pm

    Ichiro is a Hall of Famer today not because of his stats, but because of his aura.

    Eventually, his stats will equal his aura and he will be unanimously elected. But right now, it’s mainly his aura.

    He is our first really good Japanese player. He is the best hitter in the game as far as getting on base. He has all the tools except for power, but can drive it out when he needs to. Defense is stellar. He’s essentially a Derek Jeter, but a bit better in about every way (minus power).

  97. Wait till we visit the Sardine Can August 14th, 2009 at 1:03 pm

  102. Bronx Jeers August 14th, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    Ken Singleton’s comment about Ichiro was among the most interesting things I’ve heard from the YES booth recently.

    In case you missed it, Singleton commented after a sort of bizarre swing and miss from Ichiro that Ichiro will some time swing and miss wildly on purpose to bait a pitcher into throwing the same pitch.

    And almost on cue, Ichiro swats Sabathia’s next offering into left field for a single.

    Hall of Fame?

    I don’t know. Would you put Salvador Dali into the painter’s Hall of Fame if there was one. I would think so.

    Because if you think of certain athlete’s that seem to be able to transcend pure athleticism into an art form, Ichiro is Dali. He’s in his own world.

  103. rconn23 August 14th, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    CB,

    You’re dead on. Jeter gets so much attention as a “True Yankee” that his numbers aren’t discussed.

    It’s the Captain Intangibles tag. Joe Torre, who Jeter loved, didn’t really do him any favors when he constantly gave his standard “Well, he may not put up the numbers, but…” to the press.

    Um, yeah, Joe, he actually did – and does still – put up numbers. Great numbers. So much so that he should have been the MVP in 1999 and 2007. He’s making a strong case this year, but Mauer is the favorite.

    People tend to overrate certain facets of Jeter’s game. One being his ability to hit with RISP. He’s really no better than his career average, it at all.

    But of course, his career average is .316, so obviously, he’s really good with RISP. :)

    As Leo Mazzone once said about Jeter “He hits everything.”

  104. ANSKY August 14th, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    86w183

    I’ll agree Ichiro’s still got work to do … he’s still under contract for a few more years!

    He’ll maintain pace for that long. He isn’t going to pull an Andruw Jones ‘get fat & lazy then fade away’ act. He’d have to punch himself in the face and ask for a trade to Cleveland if he did. It’s virtually obvious that he’ll be voted in when his time comes.

    By then (and I do realize it’s not exactly the same as Cobb & Rose) his combined US-Japanese hits total should surpass Cobb and could very well surpass Rose’s. The dude’s still a hitting machine, a base stealing threat, and a gold glover.

  107. ANSKY August 14th, 2009 at 1:08 pm

  108. GGBG August 14th, 2009 at 1:09 pm

    Base it off of what you have seen with your eyes. When you watch Ichiro play it’s clear he’s on the level with the greats.

    His stats will be skewed because of the time he spent playing in Japan but Ichiro not making the HOF one day would be a travesty.

  109. Tim N. August 14th, 2009 at 1:10 pm

    He’s borderline at this moment, but with two more years at his level and he’s a shoo-in.

    THANKS PETE!!! Any, and I mean ANY, excuse to post Ichiro quotes is a good post.

    Two of my favs: “I’m told I either look bigger than I do on television or that I look smaller than I look on television. No one seems to think I look the same size.” Source: Tacoma News Tribune (May 23, 2001)

    Ichiro on fashion: “Although I enjoy (what I wear), all my teammates don’t think that what I’m wearing is good fashion. A lot of times, they can’t believe what I am wearing, but if you ask my opinion, everything they are wearing is a crime.”

  111. bg90027 August 14th, 2009 at 1:11 pm

    Ichiro is extremely talented and fun to watch but he’s the most overrated player in the game in terms of his impact and value. He’s a singles hitter who doesn’t walk. Despite a .333 career batting average with an OBP of .378. He’s had an OBP of over .400 in only one season and only has only three seasons of 40 steals or more and he plays a corner OF position not center. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he’s voted in but he doesn’t even come close to deserving it.

    Everything else close to career average.

    The only thing he’s better at than normal is hitting with the bases loaded.

    Depending on when he retires and who is also up for election at the same time as him he may not be a first ballot / unanimous election.

    But it’d be hard to consider him anything but a very likely HOFer.

    He doesn’t have the HRs or RBI totals that some people want to see and his career SLG is .433 which is perhaps a bit low for a corner OF. That’s about the only knock you can put together on him, that he’s a singles / slap hitter but consider he gets 30-40 SB a year as well and many of those singles turn into effective doubles because of his legs.

    In any event, he has certainly made an indelible mark on the game. Can anyone else remember a position player coming over from Japan and excelling here before Ichiro?

    Plus, he doesn’t seem to be showing major signs of aging or really slowing down to my eyes…who knows, he could be one of those guys who is effective until he’s 40 in about 4 years…I don’t think 3000 hits is realistic but if the writers focus on rate stats instead of counting stats he ought to get in.

    You are a very trusting person or incredibly naive. There is not one player in any professional sport who I would be SHOCKED to learn had some connection to PEDs, not one.

    If that makes me too cynical, so be it.

    It’s still amazing to me how most of you think it’s a “no brainer” when it’s clearly debatable and to support your statement you point out what he might end up doing.

    He’s not the best hitter of the decade, he’s the best singles hitter and there’s a difference. He’s won all of two batting titles and has never led the league in OBP. He’s a tremendous player, but nine years is not enough to earn my vote.

    The suggestion that he should be the first unanymous selection is beyond absurd.

  120. CB August 14th, 2009 at 1:17 pm

    “Jeter gets so much attention as a “True Yankee” that his numbers aren’t discussed. ”

    Alex was by far the greatest SS to play in the modern ERA. There isn’t anyway even remotely close to playing at the level he did offensively and defensively in his first 8 years.

    But if you want to now consider ARod more a 3B/SS, there there is a legitimate argument to be made that Jeter has been the greatest SS in the modern era – based on his numbers alone.

    The only caveat to that whether you believe that his SS defense was as bad as it was documented to be from 2005-2007 for a longer period of time.

    But even then in the modern era neither Riplen or Banks were great defenders.

    And Jeter has been a more productive player than either of them.

    Now, by the time Hanley Ramirez is done Jeter will have no claim to being the greatest.

    But for right now there is a real argument to be made and his ability to stay at SS for so long has to be factored in.

  121. Wait till we visit the Sardine Can August 14th, 2009 at 1:17 pm

    Between Jeet and Ichiro…I would have to take Jeter, I can’t help it, but I should take Ichiro.

  122. Pinstriped Assassin August 14th, 2009 at 1:18 pm

    Ichiro is a no-brainer for Cooperstown. Rarely do these international players meet the hype that comes with them after they toy with their respective leagues overseas. Matsui has proven to be every bit the player the Yankees thought they were getting and if they win the World Series this year I will be especially happy for Hideki.

    There may not be a more deserving guy on that roster.

    Though the Japanese league is lauded for its talent, especially all its funky-delivering pitchers, we’re lucky to have one of the two or three players from over there that actually is as good as advertised (Ichiro being the obvious other and Hideo Nomo getting a tiny golf clap despite his somewhat disappointing MLB career).

    We’re going to miss Hideki when he’s gone next year. We really are. Hopefully, Cashman can convince him to go year-to-year with the Yankees going forward, same with Damon. But if I’m Cashman I bring them both back when there deals are up.

    I know many think you need to win a championship in New York before being considered a “true Yankee,” but both Matsui and Damon should be remembered for being worth every penny spent, if nothing else.
    Because without those two guys, players who were, at times, written off during the offseason, the Yankees aren’t where they are right now. Unfortunately, they can’t both DH going forward

    Here is a question: Will Joe Girardi make the Hall of Fame?

  124. Wait till we visit the Sardine Can August 14th, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    Interesting point CB…don’t punch Hanley’s ticket to Cooperstown just yet. He’s too young, he has far too much time to get injured, and as of right now you’reright. Jeter, if you count A-Rod more as a shortstop/3rd baseman, is porbably the best shortstop of the modern era.

  125. losjanks August 14th, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    Oh and I think it’s unfair to knock him for not having an OBP above .400 considering his .333 AVG.

    Walks are good because they don’t waste outs but hits are better because they can advance base runners.

    .378 is a VERY good OBP (not otherworldly, but definitely VERY good). I’d rather have a guy who has a .378 OBP and a .333 AVG than a guy with a .378 OBP and a .250 AVG.

    This isn’t a discussion about if he’s the best player ever…because that is clearly not the case. But he is a very likely HOFer.

  126. SJ44 August 14th, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    And that’s what happens when you spend too much time reading stats and not watching games.

    The guy impacts every game he plays because of the way he plays. He’s not surrounded by a great offensive team. Yet, he still finds ways to hit and be productive.

    That’s the sign of a great player because teams constantly try to pitch around him and he still is productive.

    The game is more than just reading, and often misinterpreting, stats. You miss a lot when you do that.

  127. GGBG August 14th, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    A couple of posters yhave made some great points about Jeter. Because all he did was win when he first got the majors, because he is alwaysthe coolest guy in the room, because he was elected captain at a young age, because everyone talks about his intangibles…the fact that he is one of the best pure hitters in the game (and has been for a long time) is obscured.

    I remember a couple of years ago I saw that he had a shot at four thousand hits. I was flabbergasted. Not just because that is a mind-bendingly stupendous accomplishment, but also because he is the biggest star on the biggest American sport’s team, I am a fan of that team, and I was not aware of that fact.

    So maybe instead of focusing so much on the fact “he does all the little things right,” we should acknowledge that he is also something else far above and apart from his “captain-y-ness”: An all-time great hitter.

  136. Patrick August 14th, 2009 at 1:25 pm

    SJ44,

    You are coming down too hard on stats. Ichiro is a hall of famer and the stats back it up. There are just some specific stats that don’t really support Ichiro’s greatness and those particular stats happen to be really popular right now.

    Pete has covered it all in his post. We can all watch Ichiro and know that he is a hall of fame talent from our eyes alone but the stats do back it up.

  137. CB August 14th, 2009 at 1:25 pm

    “Ichiro is extremely talented and fun to watch but he’s the most overrated player in the game in terms of his impact and value. ”

    Only if you have a priori defined impact to depend overwhelmingly on slugging percentage and on base percentage, particularly context neutral slugging and on base.

    Picking a gold standard for evaluation is a value judgement it’s not a statistical judgement.

  138. sox r done August 14th, 2009 at 1:25 pm

    86 u don’t have a vote. and uhhhhhhhhhh Ichiro is a hall of fame player. THere isn’t much of a debate at all. Broke the single season record in hits and “ONLY” a two time batting champ in nine seasons… not sure of his exact pace but if he played here is whole career I’m sure he possibly would have ended up w/ more hits than Rose or somewhere near the top… not to mention top notch defense and a feared arm… he’s in, sorry haters. Also so is Jeter, but why would u even compare the two players, they are different in almost every way

  139. Wait till we visit the Sardine Can August 14th, 2009 at 1:27 pm

    Jeter is probably the only person playing right now that has an over 3% chance of breaking Rose’s hit record.

    will he break it? Almost definitely not. But he has a VERY outside shot.

  140. Uncle Ellsworth August 14th, 2009 at 1:27 pm

  143. Baseball Guy August 14th, 2009 at 1:29 pm

    Ichiro is a SLAM DUNK Hall-of-Famer. No doubt.

    The better question (I did not have time yet to read all the posts) is – Is Hideki Matsui a Hall-of-Famer IF you consider both leagues?

    Based on his USA play only, he is NOT, but considering his play in Japan, is there room in the Hall-of-Fame to consider that?

    I guess the question isn’t really, “Is Hideki Matsui a Hall-of-Famer” as much as it is “AS the game becomes more global and more stars from other countries come to play in the USA and play for many years, shouuld their play in another country have any impact on Hall-of-Fame consideration?”

    Continuing the Matsui discussion – 19 homers, 60 rbi’s – he is having a BIG year. If I were running the Yankees, I would (all things considered) bring him back in 2010. What a weapon to have as a DH and off the bench.

    Hideki would have to accept a reasonable salary (maybe work it out like the contrcat they did with Andy pettitte – lower base pay with huge incentives) – but I think Hideki is a huge part of this team’s success.

    (Plus he’s my 10 year old son’s favorite player – and has been since he was a baby – and I hate to see his favorite player a Yankee no longer…)

  144. Bronx Jeers August 14th, 2009 at 1:29 pm

    Speaking of the HOF, there’s a cool show on now on the MLBTV that’s reviewing many of the top players NOT in the HOF.

  145. CB August 14th, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    “We can all watch Ichiro and know that he is a hall of fame talent from our eyes alone but the stats do back it up.”

    Depends on which stats. By OPS, OPS+, and context independent runs created stats he’s not even remotely close to being a hall of famer. He’s not even in the discussion as a RF.

    By those kind of statistics Ichiro is hardly even a “good” player amongst players playing now as a right fielder because of his lack of power.

    Forget hall of fame – he’s not even that good – if those are the stats you use to evaluate him by.

  146. SJ44 August 14th, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    Patrick,

    90% of the people on here who live and die with stats as their sole evaluation of a player have no idea how to apply them properly.

    Just because a set of stats are “popular”, do not make them relevent.

    A month ago, people quoted Catchers ERA on here as if its the only way to evaluate a catchers competency. Problem is, while its a “popular” stat for some, its a stat nobody in the game uses to evaluate its catchers.

    I’m all for using statistical analysis as a tool to evaluate players. As the SOLE tool? That’s fools gold.

    Especially for those who don’t know how to use the data properly.

  147. Rishi August 14th, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    George (NY)

    What is your opinion on how the Yankees are handling/have handled Joba Chamberlain? More specifically, do you agree with the “revised Joba rules” recently talked about giving Joba extra days off and having him start in the PS or would the Yanks be better served moving Joba back to the pen for September and the PS to keep his inning sdown this year? I ask b/c I believe Pettitte will be the 3 starter in the playoffs so Joba may only have a couple of starts even if the Yanks win the WS while as a RP in the playoffs Joba can be leverages in the late innings of tight games.

    Jayson Stark (1:29 PM)

    Look, I’m all for being aware of the dangers of overworking young starters. So the principle here is sound. It’s just the execution of it that could get tricky. The Yankees are lucky they have such a comfortable lead, so they can pull this off. But if that lead shrinks at all and they HAVE to have a big September to win the East, I wonder how this plan will look then.

  148. pat August 14th, 2009 at 1:31 pm

    “Is this the place where they have the running of the bulls?” Chapman asks in Spanish. He’s told that happens in Pamplona. “Man, I don’t understand that,” he says, shaking his head. “Those people are crazy.” Someone in the car jokes that perhaps Chapman is loco for leaving Cuba’s league, the Serie Nacional, to face the likes of Albert Pujols, who may be even scarier than a bull. “Pujols?” he says. “Who is that?”

    When asked which big leaguers he’s heard of, Chapman names David Ortiz, Manny Ramírez, Alfonso Soriano, Alex Rodriguez — and there’s one other. “What’s the name of that Yankees shortstop?” he says.

    Pete! I can’t tell you how it warms my heart that a skinny little Japanese player is your favorite!

    I don’t follow Icihiro. Like at all because he’s not a Yankee (I know, terrible), but I always root for him and admire him from afar. So everyone’s comments and opinions on him are very gratifying.

    As an interesting sidenote, Kaz Matsui is 1 hit away from entering a very prestigious fraternity:

    “Matsui is trying to join the exclusive Meikyukai, a fraternity of players considered the greatest in the history of Japanese baseball.

    There are more than 50 players in the club, but Matsui would be only the fourth Japanese Major Leaguer to do it, joining Hideo Nomo, Hideki Matsui and Ichiro Suzuki. Players are eligible for induction if they reach 2,000 hits, 200 wins or 250 saves in Japan, the U.S. or combined.”

  152. Patrick August 14th, 2009 at 1:33 pm

    CB,

    That’s exactly my point. You can’t measure players by one or two metrics to decide on if they are good or not. My point is that although some very popular stats nowadays (OPS, OPS+) say that Ichiro is not that great there are other very valid stats that say he is amazing.

    Batting average, hits, runs, stolen bases, OBP all point to Ichiro being a hall of fame player. I just feel it’s unfair to say “Well Ichiro is clearly a hall of famer but the stats say he isn’t therefore stats are dumb”

    Alex Gonzalez was (I only paid attention when he was in Boston the last go round) a fantastic defensive shortstop. He will at least shore up that side of the ball.
    Can’t hit a lick. For a lineup that is currently struggling, and has struggles outside of Fenway all year, he will not help much.

    Well, I think most agree that Ichiro is a slam dunk for the Hall.

    However, I’m seeing the phrase “great hitter” thrown around for Ichiro.

    It’s subjective I know, but it always begs the question of what defines a great hitter. In comparison to Ruth, Musial, Gehrig, Ted Williams, etc. Ichiro is not a great hitter.
    Those guys all hit for average, power and had incredible – yes I’m saying it, on base percentage.

    People will say aboiut Ichiro “He’s a .333 career hitter. He’s the best hitter I’ve ever seen!”

    In comparison to Tony Gwynn, Rod Carew, and Pete Rose he is. If you consider those great hitters.

    It’s an interesting argument. Rose has the most hits of anyone in the history of the game. But Ty Cobb was light years better as a player than Rose.

  164. Proctor's elbow August 14th, 2009 at 1:37 pm

    I think Ichiro is a Hall of Famer without a doubt. You’d be hard pressed to find someone that doesn’t think that he is. The Hall of Fame has inducted far less talented players than Ichiro and if he had played his whole career in the U.S. who knows where he would have ended up in total hits? I think he would have finished with more than Rose for sure.

  165. BBB August 14th, 2009 at 1:37 pm

    ugh, I just wrote a really long post and got a Word Press error msg. and it disappeared. No way am I writing all that again but in summary:

    Yes Ichiro should be in the Hall, he silenced the critics of the extension the M’s gave him back in 07…ya know, the doubters who thought his legs wouldn’t hold up, he wouldn’t be able to beat out as many grounders and his avg. would plummet. I was one of these doubters…Ichiro 1, me 0.

    Also, his induction speech would be hilarious. I remember he gave an absolutely priceless quote about facing Dice-BB for the 1st time in America, something about how he hopes he awakens the inner fire in his soul?? It was complete comedic gold!

    Is there any way anyone can find this quote for me? If so, I will be your best friend. Freakin hilarious!!!!

    Just for clarification, if Ichiro were to never play another game, he would NOT make the Hall, because a player must play a minimum of 10 years in the majors to qualify. He will need to play through 2010 to be eligible.

    The Giants should have a top three defense in the league this year. We have a pro bowl quarterback in Eli. And we have an awesome running game. Our big problem is the receiver position; my guess is Smith steps up this year.

    86

    I don’t think I said he would be a first ballot unanimous selection, and I made no reference to his future stats, I said that even IF he DOESN’T make it to 3000 he would still get in. My point about the writers was less about Ichiro himself and more about the rhetorical corner that the writers have backed themselves into. They’re so ready to rebuke cheaters that they jump all over the people that can be perceived as pure. Last year they voted Pedroia MVP, and I completely think that he was the poster boy anti-steroid selection. Does it make me naive that I don’t think the lithe Japanese man who weighs 20lbs less than I do but stands at the same height is not juicing? I won’t think so until someone fingers him. I wasn’t surprised by AROD, nor Otriz, nor Bonds, nor Clemens. But Jeter, Ichiro and all the other guys I listed. Hell yes I would be surprised. I think it’s okay have continue to hold players up to the old standards and praise those that live up to those expectations.

  178. Pinstriped Assassin August 14th, 2009 at 1:50 pm

    Ichiro could hit 25 homers in any season if he wanted. The guy has serious power. He just knows his role and does what he’s supposed to do, which is get on any way possible, steal whenever possible and score on outs.

    I would venture to say if he batted third in a lineup he’d be good for 25, 100 and .330 on a yearly basis. He bats .360 because he’s a masterful “hitter,” and doesn’t feel the need to be a “slugger.”

    The guy’s the man. No two ways about it.

  179. BBB August 14th, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    Kevin, thank you for mentioning Jim Rice moments after I asked if Edgar Martinez should be in the Hall. Jim Rice is the prime example of why Martinez is a HOF! If he can steal a spot, there is absolutely NO reason Martinez shouldn’t be in there as well. Martinez >>>Rice all day.

  180. Peter R August 14th, 2009 at 1:54 pm

  184. ANSKY August 14th, 2009 at 2:09 pm

    Big Matsui fan here.

    If he continues to make improvements through the end of the year, it’ll be hard not to at least consider him for year-to-year contract(s) primarily as a DH. Let’s say he finishes the season hitting in the 280s, hits 25HR and knocks in about 90 runs. Considering he hasn’t quite played full time due to early-season recovery time from his knee surgery, that’s almost the old Matsui … at least on the offensive side of the game.

    Not saying at this point I’d absolutely re-sign him if I was Cashman. But I’d like to look at his second half (‘healthier’) numbers by themselves when the season’s done, and see how the other options look too. Money would be a topic for discussion too … I wouldn’t absolutely rule it out at this point.

    I happen to know from watching a NYC-based Japanese TV news program that a Japanese team has been talking to him about next year. It wasn’t the Giants, but that’s not to say the Giants aren’t also an option for him either. Curious to see how it pans out for Sushi-san

  186. ANSKY August 14th, 2009 at 2:11 pm

    Bardos –

    That’s only for the tuna they found last year with ‘enhanced’ mercury levels.

    (das’ funny, yo.)

  187. ANSKY August 14th, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    Jon – I think Tim Raines will get in. It’s an apples & oranges comparison, but I’m confident both of them will get in.

  188. Kevin S. August 14th, 2009 at 2:13 pm

    BBB, while it’s not a be-all, end-all, I generally use a WARP-3 of 80 as my cut line, while listening to arguments for players less than ten shy and against players less than ten above. Edgar finished at 88 or so. Ichiro already has 60. Rice retired at 55. Which of doesn’t belong, again?

  189. Manfredo August 14th, 2009 at 2:26 pm

    sox r done,

    These posts multiply quickly so it’s hard to keep the threads connected sometimes, but my post was a response to discussion earlier in the string about whether he’d make the Hall if his career ended today, with reference to Koufax (who, for the record, played 12 years).

  190. bg90027 August 14th, 2009 at 2:35 pm

    “And that’s what happens when you spend too much time reading stats and not watching games.

    The guy impacts every game he plays because of the way he plays. He’s not surrounded by a great offensive team. Yet, he still finds ways to hit and be productive.

    That’s the sign of a great player because teams constantly try to pitch around him and he still is productive.

    The game is more than just reading, and often misinterpreting, stats. You miss a lot when you do that.”

    I couldn’t disagree with you more on this. No one disputes his talent or that he is very fun to watch. He is a great singles hitter. To dismiss the importance of his OBP when his primary offensive contribution is to get on base is crazy. His OBP is pretty good but its not HOF good.

    And on your dismissal of stats in general, stats are especially valuable here because watching him play alone you tend to overrate his contributions. It seems like he’s always on base when he isn’t that great at getting on base which is especially surprising given the tendency of teams to pitch around him. He leads the league in IBB but only has 11 non-intentional walks in 500 plate appearances this year. He makes Robinson Cano look selective at the plate.

  191. MAC_1103 August 14th, 2009 at 2:37 pm

    “It’s hard to take any league seriously where Kei Igawa was a star.”

    Of course, Suzuki didn’t play in that league. Igawa played in the Central League, which is far weaker than the Pacific League where Ichiro played.

  192. rover August 14th, 2009 at 2:48 pm

    Well I’m sorry we just don’t know if Ichiro can dance. No dance no hall.

  193. austinmac August 14th, 2009 at 3:21 pm

    Once Ichiro has completed the mandatory ten years in the league, he seems to me to be a lock for the Hall. If the Hall is to recognize the best players of one’s generation, he certainly is that. He has, I’m certain, more hits per year than anyone else. He is also a fabulous outfielder. Lastly, no one is more fun to watch. It seems to be a no-brainer.

  194. Thank You Michael Lewis August 14th, 2009 at 3:32 pm

    I can’t believe this is debatable. Ichiro is a slam-dunk lock for the Hall.

    This was a fantastic article in The Hardball Times (a Sabermetrics publication) on Ichiro and whether he’ll be the first players in two different Halls of Fame. It goes into great detail looking at his productivity as compared with stretches of other great players.

    http://www.hardballtimes.com/m.....which-one/

  195. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes August 14th, 2009 at 3:39 pm

    He was also the 2001 MVP and Rookie of the Year not to mention he set the all time record for hits in a season…262 I think.

  196. Michael T August 14th, 2009 at 3:39 pm

    All this support for Ichiro demostrates misunderstanding of the objective of offense in baseball- not making outs. Career OBP of .378 for a guy who spent most of his career as a corner outfielder is barely average. He has been in the top ten in outs made in baseball every single year of his MLB career- finishing 2nd twice and 3rd once.

    Look at Dwight Evan’s stats compiled over 20 years while playing great right field defense in a very difficult park for the position. Career OBP of .370- almost as good as Ichiro currently and for more than twice as long; and OBP+ of 127- much better and adjusted for the era. Also almost 400 career HRs and the guy can’t get arrested in Cooperstown.

  197. NO HYPE August 14th, 2009 at 3:48 pm

    I didnt even realize there was a question regarding this

  198. NO HYPE August 14th, 2009 at 3:50 pm

    OBP is overrated. Ichiro is a PHENOMENAL contact hitter… the type of hitter that drives in runs and the type of hitter that the 1998 Yankees were based on.

  199. Kevin S. August 14th, 2009 at 3:50 pm

    Actually, a .378 OBP is still really good for a corner outfielder. Don’t forget, he’s mostly been a plus corner outfielder defensively, and he’s been a high-volume, high-efficiency basestealer. That OBP isn’t ZOMFG!!!1! amazing, but it’s typically puts him solidly in the top quartile of corner outfielders.

  200. Kevin S. August 14th, 2009 at 3:55 pm

    “OBP is overrated. Ichiro is a PHENOMENAL contact hitter… the type of hitter that drives in runs and the type of hitter that the 1998 Yankees were based on.”

    Not to let facts get in the way of a good argument or anything… but the ’98 Yanks had seven players with 300 or more plate appearances who walked in greater than 10% of them, plus Chili Davis (who didn’t meet that PA threshold). I love me some Ichiro, but that ’98 juggernaut was hardly a bunch of ‘contact hitters.’

  201. Little Chip August 14th, 2009 at 3:55 pm

    My favorite Ichiro quote. (Talking about Bret Boone in 2001)
    “I don’t know if it’s a good memory or a bad one,” Ichiro Suzuki said. “But when I first came over to play in the United States, I had had a few teammates from the U.S. who had played on my team in Japan. So I had somewhat of an idea of what American players would be like.

    “But when I met him, he was kind of a human being that you would never meet in Japan. So, whenever I was around him, I almost felt like I was witnessing a creature, not a human being. It was fun for me to watch him.”

  202. Thank You Michael Lewis August 14th, 2009 at 3:58 pm

    Michael T:

    Your statement indicates a deeper-than-normal understanding about baseball evaluation.

    Please read the article from The Hardball Times in which it uses different metrics to analyze every part of his game.

    For example, the amount of wins above average that he was worth over his eight years in the majors is greater than any eight year stretch put together by Manny Ramirez or Vlad Guerrero

  203. Jim August 14th, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    I don’t really think there is any argument to be made that Ichiro is not a Hall of Fame player.

    Its too bad he hasn’t had the opportunity to play on a few more playoff teams.

  204. Kevin S. August 14th, 2009 at 4:20 pm

    Well, sure there’s an argument. See: Albert Belle. I don’t think that’ll happen, but if Belle can get denied on career brevity, so can Ichiro.

  205. tj August 14th, 2009 at 4:30 pm

    “Forget what he did in Japan. It’s hard to take any league seriously where Kei Igawa was a star.”

    That is an incredibly asinine and short sighted comment. As a baseball writer you should be better than that. In one broad stroke with one ignorant fact you’ve discredited, discounted, and pretty much write off an entire country’s professional sports league. Why not just say the same about the Negro Leagues too? Yes those players were kept out by segregation and racism but Japanese players are bound to their league by contract and cannot simply defect to the MLB, thus they either have to be posted or accumulate enough service time to qualify for free agency.

    I think Ichiro, Matsui, Kaz Sasaki, Hideo Nomo, Okajima etc prove that talent can be just as good in some cases.

    The HOF in Cooperstown is the BASEBALL HOF NOT THE US MAJOR LEAGUE Baseball HOF.

    Seriously, think before you make some idiotic statement next time.

  206. DaSaint007 August 14th, 2009 at 5:11 pm

    Ichiro is a first-ballot HOF in my opinion. It’s always a pleasure to watch him play when my Yankees play them.

    It would be interesting to see if Hideki Matsui would consider playing in Seattle next season if the Yankees don’t offer him a contract. Ichiro, Matsui, and Johjima on the same Nintendo-owned team. Now that’s marketing!

    Saint

  207. Paco Dooley August 14th, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    Ditto on Ichiro – my favorite non-Yankee to watch play. He’s exciting and is the coolest player in the league. The fact that he has also lead the league in hits so many times (including that crazy season where he had something like 260+ hits), plus the fact that he will actually get to 2500 hits despite not playing his whole career in MLB makes him a no-brainer HoFer.

  208. Michael T August 14th, 2009 at 5:36 pm

    Thank You Michaei Lewis-

    I read the article and it was pretty eye-opening- Ichiro much less overrated than I thought. I am now on the fence, based on peak value to date alone. A few more years production at current levels and I suppose he has earned it, amking it moot. Although I would set the bar higher than it currently is so guys like Billy Williams would be well below it and (ack!) Jim Rice nbot even part of the discussion.

  209. gianthinker August 14th, 2009 at 7:51 pm

    Yes, he should be the first in both the American and Japanese Hall Of Fames.

  210. Rathipon August 14th, 2009 at 8:35 pm

    Career stats are how players like Don Sutton, and one day Jim Thome get into the HOF. Ichiro gets into the HOF the same way Sandy Koufax got in.

  211. MX August 14th, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    Don’t forget his rocket arm. He has “The Throw”! And there is the unwritten rule: Don’t run on Ichiro!

  212. jake August 14th, 2009 at 9:22 pm

    On Albert Belle:
    I think that longevity has just about always been a factor in the HoF. Koufax was an exception. Koufax was a more dominant player at his position than Belle was at his. But Belle was a powerhouse of a hitter. Koufax was amazing, but his career wasn’t any longer than Belle’s. I think Koufax got into the HoF not just because he was so good, but because the sportswriters liked him a lot, too. Sportswriters are human, after all, and their feelings about a player matter in terms of how they vote. After all, how else can you explain a sportswriter NOT voting for Rickey Henderson? And was Kirby Puckett really an all-time great? Belle was known for being surly and difficult. None of the sportswriters complain about Ichiro.

  213. Jason from The Heartland August 15th, 2009 at 1:44 am

    It’s an absolute no-brainer that Ichiro is a Hall-of-Fame player right now. He’s one of the greatest hitters ever, has lots of speed, and is one of the greatest defensive outfielders in the history of the game. I remember watching him throw out Magglio a couple years ago tagging from third on a fairly deep fly in right field and, while it was a slower runner in Magglio, Ichiro made it look so easy that Magglio didn’t even try to slide. He was out by several steps. In his rookie year in 2001, Ichiro nailed Vlad at third on a long throw from right field with ease. He won me over at that point.

    To be honest, Ichiro is my favorite non-Yankees player ever, so I am biased. But the guy is flat-out amazing. If Ichiro isn’t in Cooperstown five years after he retires, it would be an abject disgrace. The guy is incredible.

  214. yanksince57-was this 1959 or was it 1965? August 15th, 2009 at 2:26 am

    as a nyy fan since 1957, i can truthfully say that jeter is the greatest ss i have ever seen and is a certain first ballot HOfer! as for ichiro, if he completes 10 full seasons in american baseball, he will be in the HOF (but probably not first ballot due to several different prejudices being in play

  215. mrkessler August 15th, 2009 at 6:54 am

    Ichiro is your favorite player in MLB? Really? That just seems so odd. Sure, you don’t HAVE to be a Yankee fan to cover them (are you?), but Ichiro presents himself as a highly unlikable and stat-driven machine. Playa, gotta have soul !!!

  216. RollingWave August 16th, 2009 at 7:26 am

    power number isn’t a fair indicator of Ichiro’s ability, he steals a ton of bases too. there’s a huge difference between him and a 120 OPS+ slow slugger.

    his HOF monitor # in BR is already good enough for a HOF RIGHT NOW. his BP’s career WARP3 is already 60 , Jim Rice had only 55 and he played 5+ more seasons.

    Even without considering his Japanese exploits. he’s a legit candidate. and being the first truely successful Japanese position player in the US should easily throw him into a slam dunk.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  389. videos humoristas chilenos callejeros September 7th, 2014 at 5:17 am

    Dear Katie, I’m sorry to hear that your doctor made a mistake and put you on Depo injections. You say which you are nonetheless getting injections? These injections are produced from progestin, a synthetic form of progesterone which is used mainly as a method of birth control for women who cannot use any other form of birth control. Among the drug’s side effects is weight gain. A single injection lasts for three months. So should you are still obtaining these injections, please, please, tell your doctor which you don’t want to receive them any longer. The effects with the drug will remain within your body for three months, so during these three months, it may be difficult to lose the added weight which you gained, no matter what you do. You’ll find other far more gentler ways to regulate your periods and menses, specifically at your tender formative age. Here are some of the negative reasons for not utilizing Depo-Provera: it can cause decreased bone density which can lead to osteoporosis, depression, increased blood clots, liver damage, headaches, hair loss, leg cramps, nervousness, dizziness, abdominal bloating, and weight gain. For your stretch marks on your stomach, it is possible to rub some vitamin E on them. Just puncture a capsule of vitamin E and gently apply to your stomach area once or twice each day. The stretch marks will respond towards the vitamin E in case you use it regularly and use it as soon as they appear. The older the stretch marks, the longer and a lot more difficult they are to rub away. It is greatest to use natural vitamin E, which can be distinguished from the synthetic form by the following small print and notations on the vitamin bottle: d- will be the natural form, and dl- is the synthetic form. Use only the d- form which may be the natural form. I believe that synthetic substances have caused enough harm already, and really should be laid to rest. Locate a doctor who will listen to you, have patience until the Depo drug gets out of your system and body, and continue follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen to get back to your former weight. Please read the posts above to learn more about dieting. Good luck.

    Hi, A lot of what you’re experiencing are called “break-in” side effects. When I started taking Lexapro, I also had very vivid and bizarre dreams – fortunately they went away with time. That should also hold true of the dizziness.. . The drowsiness and fatigue depend a lot on when you take the Lexapro. I found (by experimenting) that the best time for me to take my Lexapro is with dinner. I sleep a lot better, and I’m more awake the next day.. . If the drowsiness and fatigue continue, you might think about asking your doctor if you could add Wellbutrin SR to your meds. I take it – in the morning – and it helps get me going. And, you might also be able to lower your Lexapro dose, too – which also helps.

    The processor or CPU could be the brains of the personal computer – it does most of the calculations your video game titles need to have to have to run (with the movie card undertaking most of the graphics function). With it getting such an critical part, you would instinctually go for the fastest – and most pricey – processor you can find, but there is really a improved alternate to blowing hard cash on one thing that will probably be obsolete in a year: receiving a processor that will play tomorrow’s video game titles at a low cost is the sweet spot for any gaming computer.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
