Exactly. I think he is a HOF player, but I hate when guys stick around just to get to those milestones. Mike Schmidt did it right. He was past his prime, he knew it, so he decided to retire rather than hitting .220 with 25 homers and 200 k's every year, just so he could get to 600 homers. Ichiro stays healthy and can still run and play defense just fine, but no way he deserves a starting spot on any team besides maybe the Marlins, Astros and Cubbies.
