Ichiro tripled for his 3,000th real hit. He had to use the thin air of Colorado to get it too. I'm just saying, not that impressive. On top of that PED user Dee Gordon was his first teammate to congratulate him. A little suspicious if you ask me. One of those, "see I told you that stuff would work" moments?
A lot of odd circumstances surrounding his 3000th. It all confirms that his hits in Japan don't count.
