  1. Cap Anson turned 39 on april 17th 1891,, in 7 seasons 1891-1897 he had hits of 157, 152, 125, 133, 159, 133, 121 = 980 hits

    during that time he batted 312 avg with a 396 obp

    he played mostly fist base in those seasons

    Jeter turns 39 on June 26, 2013,….. if Jeter can do even what Cap Anson did,,,, he will have Rose,, being only 943 hits away from breaking the record by 1

  2. Looking at the free agent pitchers now that the Yanks have signed Kuroda, I would take a chance on Jonathan Sanchez,Brandon McCarthy, or Edwin Jackson, they all are young and have good arms. Now would be the time to grab a good young starter, if not for this year for next year.

    • Hey Doug how’s it going
      The pitcher I like for the Yanks is Haren.He’s 32 and one of the most durable arms in the game .He would fill a top of the rotation spot and the Yanks came close to trading for him a few years back so the intrest was there.Haren is an inning’s eater that can pitch like an ace ,get him now so when Kuroda and Andy retire the Yanks will have some stability in their rotation.

      Jackson has a big time arm and should be better than he is,I have liked him the last few years and maybe pitching for the Yanks and having CC take him under his arm would help.

      Sanchez not good.

      McCarthy would be a big gamble
      after his near death beening,wonder if he can ever be the same?

      2013/rotation
      CC-Kuroda-Andy-Haren-Nova/Phelps
      2014/rotation
      CC-Haren-Nova-Pineada-Phelps/lefty starter

      • ballpark, if they can fit Haren into the budget he is the best pitcher available to the Yanks, If the Yanks plan on getting rid of Grandy next year he would be a perfect fit. I like your rotations, as you know they are the keys to the Yanks being successfull. We trade Hughes for a good outfielder or a couple of young starters.

      • ballpark……morning. I like your thinking re: Haren. always liked him, and he would be a great fit. I must ask….is he a free agent? Trading Hughes, now, would be smart. Throw in a few of those young arms, and that basically is all they are, and the Yanks might find something. Signing Hamilton, would be the off season bomb. George, would of done it. He would of embraced him.

        • but what do the yankees need with a shortstop though ??? unless they are definitivly trading arod

          • Good day to you young Jim, hope everything went well for the holiday!
            You must understand, there is no reason to think Jeter will ever have another year as 2012. In baseball it is called, covering you ass, just in case.
            If Jeters bat can no longer be well above average, which will happen sooner than later, they will need a good SS, don’t you think. Even if the Yanks get rid of A-Rod and move him to 3rd base.

            • The best move for the Yanks is to sign Keppinger, Haiston, and Ichiro too short term contracts. This will give the Yanks some solid right hand bats as back ups and Ichiro will do well in RF for a year, until Williams and Heathcott are ready. Sign Haren and the Yanks are set for next year. I would trade Hughes for an outfielder or a young SS prospect. Trade Grandy for a young starter like Teheran or Minor.

  3. pete rose turned 39 on aprl 14th 1980——- it happened to be an off day for rose,…… on that day he had a totals of:

    3375 hits, 883 extra base hits, 1748 runs, 1014 rbi, 1181 walks, 2671 games, 12209 plate appearances

    Jeter turns 39 on June 26th 2013, the yankees have 78 regular season games to play through June 26, 2013. Jeter currently has totals of:

    3304 hits, 844 extra base hits, 1868 runs, 1254 rbi, 1039 walks, 2585 games, 11895 plate appearances

    so,, over the first 78 games in 2013 jeter needs:

    71 hits, 39 extra base hits, 86 games, 314 plate appearances

    It will be impossible for jeter to play in 86 games when the yankees only have 78 games.He can get the plate appearances though or come close.

    The point being,, by the end of June 26th 2013, Jeter will have more hits than Rose had on his 39th birthday,, and have done it in less games and less plate appearances( pro rated),

    If Jeter plays in 70 of the 78 games,, he should be able to pul down 90 hits at worst,… putting him 19 hits ahead of rose on their respective 39th birthdays

    as long as jeter continues to kepp pace with rose,, and slightly ahead of rose in all 3 caregories- hits per plate appearance,, hits per game played, and hits per days of age,,.. and slightly ahead in all 3 categories,….. i will continue to say he will get rose

    i will refrain from saying jetrer will not get rose until jeter drops behind rose in all 3 categories.

  4. pete rose shouldnt be going around saying jeter will not do it,…. when jeter is ahead of him in hit by age, hit by games, and hits by plate appearances,,,,,
    (of course the age stat, you have to clauculte in season, on june 26th,, because of the off season)

    jeter will make up time in 2014,, that would be equivalt to rose’s strike season,… where he led th emajors with only 140 hits in minited number of games.

    after the 2014 season,,if jetewr has kept pace,, and pulled ahead of rose by 50 hits,… it should be clear jeter will go for the hits records,.. and by default,, the runs record at the same time

  5. after pete roses 39th birthday on april 14, 1980,, rose played in 891 more games, 3681 more plate appearances, and had 881 more hits.

    Jeter is currently 953 hits away from breaking the record, with 78 team games in hand until he turns 39.

    rose had 881 hits in 891 games after his 39th birthday……. pretty poor, despite the 1981 season where he had 140 hits in 107 games,……. rose went down hill with his ability to avoid the hitless game,….. a category jeter is already significantly ahead of rose in.

    if jeter gets 90 hits in first 78 team games in 2013,….. jeter will be 863 hits away from the record on his 39th birthday

    looking at it,…… at jeters past compared to rose,…. jeter would have a real chance at gettingf the record

    we have to keep looking at it in increments from this point on,…

    the first increment in the yankees first 78 games next season.

    just keep staying ahead of rose, increment by increment,…….. and we will enjoy him getting closer and closer to the record,…… and god willing, time flys by fast,…… before we know it,…….. jeter will be within 100 hits of 4257,….. and we can only hope it doesnt overwelm him,….

    jeter could do it playing in 5 more seasons with hits of 213, 185, 185, 185, 185,….. but most likeley it will go into a 6th season,…. 2018

    i am sticking to my prediction of august 29th 2018 for hit 4257.

    jeter, i am sure, wants to get this done as fast as possible though,.. not drag it out,…

    the more hits he gets, the more he helps the team win,.. so by default, jeter’s drive to help the team win,, will be what gets him the record.

  6. numer of hits after 39th birthday for the players on the 3000 hits list

    jeter needs 953 hits to break rose overall, jeter has 78 teams game through his 39th birthday, if jeter gets 90 hits in those 78 team games, he will need 863 hits after his 39th birthday. Rose and Anson are the only 2 players to have more than that after 39th birthday, the next highest was wagner at 603 hits
    however, as it stands now, based on the fact jeter is neck and neck with rose, which none of these other players were except for musial,. and the fact jeter bats at the top of the order, can dh more and more, can stay in better shape with better physical therapy, and sports medicine,… even against the best pitching ever in baseball,… i think jeter got a shot– see list below

    rose- 881
    cobb- 368
    aaron- 262
    musial- 427
    speaker- 222
    anson- 980
    wagner- 603
    yastrzemski- 584
    molitor- 576
    collins – 193
    mays- 338
    murray – 325
    lajoie – 350 + sept 6 1913 to end of season ( no game logs avaiable)
    ripken jr – 216
    brett – 291
    waner – 193
    yount – zero
    gwynn – 172
    winfield – 562
    biggio – 421
    henderson – 505
    carew – 124
    brock – 150
    palmeiro – 245
    boggs – 271
    kaline – 146
    clemente – zero

  7. if we look closer at this,, let us look at honus wagner,….. total of 3420 hits over 21 seasons, with 603 hits after his 39th bithday,…

    Wagner played in 2794 games with 11748 plate appearancesJeter currently has more plate appearances than wagner , jeter has 11895 plate appearances, but only 2585 games

    jeter is cuurently 116 hits behind wagner overall– and has 78 team games through his 39th birthday in hand.

    wagner is currently in 6th place all time,…. if we throw out anson’s hits that occured not in MLB, AS MLB officvialy throws out the first several seasons ofg hits for anson.

    Jeter is moving up fast on the all time hits list,…

    rose has got to be worried ,… lol

    so, the point being, jeter should be able to get way more than 603 hits after turning 39,…… because he is way ahead og wagner right now by age, by over 500 hits or so,……

    really, what we are looking at, from the overall posts today, on breaking the record is this —

    THE SIMPLE FACT THE RECORD IS THERE TO BE BROKEN, LIKE THE 4 MINUTE MILE, OR THE HOME RUN RECORD, OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL SPORTS ACHIEVEMENT RECORD YOU CAN THINK OF.

    THE FACT A MARK IS THERE- 4256— SETS THE STANDARD TO BE BROKEN,… WITHOUT 4256 THERE WOULD NOT BE 4256 TO SHOOT FOR

    NO MATTER WHAT PLAYERS SAY , EXCEPT FOR ROSE WHO SAID THE OPPISITE AND THE TRUTH,…. PLAYERS GO FOR THE RECORDS—-

    ROSE WAS THE ANTI JETER– ROSE DECLARING HE WAS GOING FOR COBB AS EARLY AS 1982 OR 1983,…..

  8. Jed Lowrie would also be a good fit for the Yanks as a utility player.

  9. AS SOON AS ALEX RODRIGUEZ ADMITTED TO MANIPUYLATING THE OUTCOME OF GAMES BU USING STEROIDS AND HGH, THE YANKEES SHOULD HAVE SUED HIS ASS, AND BASEBALL SHOULD HAVE SUSPENDED HIM FOPR LIFE— BANNED FROM BASEBALL,…… AND EVEN SUED HIM TO GET MNONEY BACK– BECAUSE HIS PERFORMANCE WAS FALSE

    WHY ARENT FANS SEETHING WITH HATE FOR AROD— HE STOILE MONEY OUT OF EVERYONES POCKETS

    HE MESSED WITH THE FINAL OUT COME OF GANES
