    Now that Derek Jeter has 2,500 career hits, he needs just 7 more RBI for 1,000 career RBI. Once Jeter has that, he will become only the tenth player in baseball history to have 2,500+ hits, 200+ HR, 250+ SB, 1,400+ runs and 1,000+ RBI in his career. Via the Complete Baseball Encyclopedia here’s the ten:

    Player		PA	H	HR	SB	R	RBI
    Rickey Henderson	13346	3055	297	1406	2295	1115
    Barry Bonds	12606	2935	762	514	2227	1996
    Craig Biggio	12503	3060	291	414	1844	1175
    Willie Mays	12492	3283	660	338	2062	1903
    Robin Yount	12249	3142	251	271	1632	1406
    Paul Molitor	12160	3319	234	504	1782	1307
    Joe Morgan	11329	2517	268	689	1650	1133
    Steve Finley	10460	2548	304	320	1443	1167
    Roberto Alomar	10400	2724	210	474	1508	1134
    Derek Jeter	8967	2500	203	273	1450	993
    

    If Jeter can get to 3,000 career hits and 1,400 career RBI, then, he will join Willie Mays and Robin Yount as the only players in baseball history to have 3,000+ hits, 200+ HR, 250+ SB, 1,400+ runs and 1,400+ RBI in his career.

    Now, that would be something, wouldn’t it?

      Just an add-on…

      Once A-Rod gets his 2,500th career hit, he would become #11

      Anyone else surprised to see Finley on this list?

      He’s the PED poster-child that no one wants to ever mention, IMHO.
