Ichiro Suzuki has been in a season-long slump. Certainly so by his Olympian standard. His current .269 batting average is something like 60 points below his career in North America. He is somewhere around 38. I have little doubt, Ichiro will be enshrined in Cooperstown when his major league career is over. In some ways, he is the baseball equivalent of The Little Master, Sachin Tendulkar. Both are wiry. Both have defied age (Tendulkar even more so, also being 38). Ichiro is always a Triple-A-rated player to me (Evander).
