And I finally got used to him being in Yank uniform. Miami is stacked with talent this coming year.

Not sure if Miami was the best place for him to go, the Marlins have a pretty solid outfield. I see him having less at bats than last season and leaving him short of 3000 hits. Even if he batted .284 again this season, he would need 550 ABs to get the 156 hits he needs. That isn't going to happen.

Even if he doesn't get to 3,000 hits, I have to think he gets in the Hall. Maybe not first ballot, though he deserves it. But he'll get in.

Ichiro is a definite first ballot Hall of Famer regardless of getting 3000 hits. In addition to his hitting he was an excellent fielder with a great arm. If he had retired this past season he could have achieved something that has never been done, to average 200 hits per season for an entire career.
