How Will We Remember Ichiro?

Last night, Ichiro Suzuki recorded his 4,000th hit as a professional baseball player. The achievement will lead to plenty of people taking stock of Ichiro's legacy as a player, and the fact that only 2,722 of his hits were recorded in the American major leagues will continue to fuel stupid debates about just how sparkly that legacy is.
