Only 300 away.. that's barely just 150 hits a season for the next two.. it'll be easy for him.

As of today, Ichiro Suzuki has 2721 Major League hits, and is a combined 3999 hits in Japan and the States. One more hit and he reaches the 4000 hit plateau that has only been reached in a major league by Ty Cobb (4189) and Pete Rose (4256). He has really slowed down as a hit machine, but since he hits predominantly singles anyway, I don't think many people notice. He can stay healthy and slap his way to 279 more singles in the next few years, I believe. He just has to keep his legs going to keep beating out weak infield hits...

Minor League Baseball Legs/ Injuries

I really like Ichiro and want to say yes to this, but if I'm answering honestly, I don't think he has much of a chance. He doesn't leg out as many infield hits as he once did and he's a big injury risk due to his age.

Every player takes the chance of the next play being their last, but the odds increase so much more with every year.

Even though I'm a big A's fan and didn't like all those years that he came into down and played against my team, I have to respect the man for his work ethic and style of play, I hope he's able to beat the odds.

Ichiro has 2742 at the end of the 2013 season and is signed to the Yankees for one more season. He will obviously need to stay healthy and get the playing time to have a chance at 3000.

At his current pace it'll take him two and a half seasons.

It's not looking good for Ichiro he is at 2,802 but it took him almost one year to clear 100 hits. He'll need to get more playing time and that won't be with the Yankees.

He doesn't leg out as many infield hits only because the .500 Yankees esp last year and awful Marlins this year insist on being dumb and using him as a sub and pinch hitter. His infield hit percentage the last three years is actually right on par w his career IFH%.

Ichiro led the Yankees in BA last year. He's third in average on Miami this year and that's despite pinch hitting usually, or coming in as a defensive sub.

The MLB average for pinch hitters is around .215 every year; it's a death sentence for hitters.

He should have eclipsed 500 steals and 3000 bases awhile ago.

3000 hits, .300 BA, 500 steals club:
Ty Cobb
Honus Wagner
Eddie Collins
Paul Molitor

(And that's it!!!)
