Cloning Ichiro

.356/.394/.413. That’s the Mariners offense the last 7 games. 95 hits, 85 of those are singles. Only two home runs and 22 walks in 267 at-bats. But they’re averaging 6 runs a game over that stretch because they’re singling the other team to death. If you ever wondered what a team full of Ichiros would like like, we’re seeing it. Leading the charge are Ichiro (naturally) and Raul Ibanez, who are a combined 29 for their last 54, a .537 batting average. All 29 of those hits have been singles.

For the month of September, Ichiro and Ibanez are a combined 67 for 175, a .383 average. Sixty-two of those hits have been singles.

This is one of the most unique offensive attacks you will ever see.

    yes, for the LOVE OF GOD sign a couple bats that can hit the ball more than 120 feet!!!!!!!!! (or in Ichiro’s case, 10-50 feet)

    Have you ever seen Ichiro hit batting practice. He smokes the ball out of the ballpark. No joking G. Wo! ha-haaaaaa

    We need David Wells. He’s always said he wanted to play in the dead-ball era. Here it is, Big Guy!

    home run and a double today.

    I’ll take singles if they come that often.
