After 3000

Derek Jeter got hit number 3000 this afternoon. I'm tempted to quote Mickey Mantle ("Weren't most of them singles?") or wonder out loud how great an accomplishment that many hits is considering players like Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, Mike Schmidt and Joe DiMaggio fell far short of that total.

But that would be passive agressive nonsense.

Now he only needs 1,200 or so to catch Pete Rose.

It might could happen.*

*No way in hell.
