A slightly belated congratulations to the great Ichiro on becoming the 2nd fastest player in baseball history to get 2000 hits. He did it in 1402 games. Only Al Simmons did it faster.

Anyone who says that Ichiro is not a hall of famer is crazy. Even of he doesn't get to 3000, it is only because he came over from Japan so late. Had he started in the major leagues at the age of 20 or 21, it's likely he would provide a legitimate challenge to Pete Rose's hits record.
