Derek Jeter now has 2,915 hits, 85 away from 3,000.
I'd like to tell you how many hits he is away from Pete Rose's 4,256 but I don't have a calculator handy. Yes, I know there is one somewhere on the computer but it will take me 10-minutes to find it. And when I say Pete Rose, I mean Pete Rose Sr, not his kid Pete Rose Junior who had 2 hits in 14 at-bats for the Reds in 1997.
Weird occurrence...as I was typing Pete Rose's name, I glanced up at the TV, which has MLB Network playing, and there was Pete, rounding third in a Phillies uniform. Unbeknownst to me, they are showing 1983 World Series highlights.
Anyway, Jeter is closing in on 3,000 and I'll keep you posted on his progress.
