    Ichiro Suzuki was more pleased with the timing of his clutch swing than securing another Seattle record.

    Suzuki became the Mariners' career hits leader with two infield bouncers Saturday night, including an RBI single in the ninth that plated the go-ahead run in a 5-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

    "I wasn't thinking about my base hit," Suzuki said after signing his jersey and a pair of batting gloves to mark his milestone achievement. "I wanted that run. That's what was more on my mind than the hit."

    I'm torn about this one a bit. For some irrational reason, I consider Edgar one of the Old Guard, the All-Time Mariners, and Ichiro as still some upstart. Even though he's been here 10 years.

    Edgar is and has always been pure class. I hope tonight he gets as much love for giving up the record as Ichiro for breaking it at the ceremony.
