As I mentioned earlier this year, despite the fact that I am a Tigers fan, I’ll write a little bit more about Derek Jeter. He’s on his last lap around the MLB world as an active player and I’m very happy for him. I really do hope that he will enjoy this ride into the sunset.
I can only imagine what it’ll be like in five years from now when he’s announced a first ballot MLB Hall of Famer. If that doesn’t happen, then I’ll be right with a number of other Yankee fans, prepared to riot in the streets of Cooperstown (or wherever).
At any rate, yesterday DJ finally got his first RBI of the year. He also finds himself needing 3 hits to pass Paul Molitor on the MLB All time hits list. Molitor is currently 8th on the list with 3,319 hits and 4th on the AL All time list.
Keep it up, Captain! Keep it up!
