Ichiro is three away from breaking George Sisler's 1927 record of 257 base hits in a single MLB season. Around here, there's much talk about whether Ichiro should break the record at an away game or wait until he gets home to Safeco Field.
Ichiro should not concentrate on breaking a record. He should only do what he does well, hit the ball and let the chips fall where they may.
If he breaks Sisler's record at an away game, then he can jolly well set a NEW record at a home game. That's the way I see it. Stupid Mariners fans.
