I agree. He just got 500 hits and he's only 25 years old. He's had at least 185 hits the last two seasons.


Ask Mr. Griffey about predicting records for players at such a young age...


Exactly. You can pretty much say across the board if a player is under 27 right now his chances of making it to 3000 are slim to none. You would be right 99% of the time.

I think Miggy Cabrera has a very good chance of getting to 3000. He has 654 hits at the age of 23 not counting this season, and is a perennial contender for 200 hits each season. He is an extremely talented hitter and one of the best 5 in the game IMO. Thats my pick.

Other than the obvious ones that will do it (ARod)...

Pending on Pujol's real age, I think he has a decent shot at 3000.

Catchers get old fast. I think Pudge might get to 3000 but it's not guaranteed.
Another player is Vlad 1900 at 31.


As far as young players go, I agree that Sizemore, Miguel Cabrera and Jose Reyes but you are forgetting about Carl Crawford. He is a one year older than sizemore but has 170 more hits. He get 185 hits every year.

One more thing I don't understand. Why do people think that Jeter will approach Rose's record and not Arod. Arod is 13 months younger and is only 99 hits behind Jeter.

hmm. Actually Crawford has 397 more hits then Sizemore in his career ;-D

Crawford is another good choice

:-D

I had no idea Pudge actually had a chance to get 3000 hits. ;-D


He never got there. They took like 3 hits away from him.

Not necessarily for this argument but isn't that contradictory??

As long as he stays in the NL, my money is on Cole Hamels.

I don't see how thats contradictory. If he was referring to plate appearances, then yes, but fewer walks will lead to more at bats.

I think he was saying that it's a little contradictory to say that someone's a "proto-type leadoff hitter" if he doesn't walk a lot, since good leadoff hitters generally walk a fair amount.

As for the 3000 club, another who might make it is Andruw Jones. He's got over 1600 hits at the age of 30. If I had to put my money on it, I'd say that he doesn't get there, but he should have a shot at it. Miggy Tejada is at 1671 at the age of 31.

I'm kind of looking forward to Bonds getting 3000. Hopefully it will portray him as a pure hitter instead of a juiced home run hitter. Maybe he doesn't deserve it, but he doesn't get enough publicity for how good he is at getting on base. It's pretty amazing that a guy who will break the home run record soon and has been walked a ton in his career is going to get 3000 hits. He has over 1000 more walks than Hank Aaron. If he was pitched to I think he'd be close to breaking the hits record right about now rather than close to 3000.
