It was nice to think about, but it’s a safe bet that Pete Rose will remain the all-time hits leader. Now you know what Rose meant when he said the first 3,000 were the easy ones.
We all know Rose is banned from baseball. Apparently that came with a banishment from Topps baseball cards.
The Hit King has spoken: If you thought Derek Jeter would one day break MLB’s all-time hits record, think again.
Most aging players begin the slide and never come back. Derek Jeter did an about face that is simply astounding. But when will the real decline begin? And how quickly will it occur?
Jeter has never made a big deal about turning older, he simply deals with it day-by-day, the same thing he’s done his entire career.
