    Congrats to a great hitter.
    Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

    90% of them were against us. Or so it feels like.

      Sox could have had him, had a deal in place with Miami but they wouldn't absorb the contract of Dontrelle Willis.

        He might be the last member of the 3000-hit club for a while. There are only 3 other active players over 2000 right now, and it's unlikely that any of them gets to 3000 (Robinson Cano, Yadier Molina, and Joey Votto). Altuve might have the best shot (he's at 1783 and will turn 32 this year).

          This was the topic of a discussion over the weekend on the radio. The commentators said don't look at who are the top 4 or 5 hit total players today, none of them will get it (Trout spent too much on the IL and now would need 100% perfect health for at least 10 years and he is 30 years old now).

          The two most like guys are, in their opinions and I agree, are Juan Soto and Wander Franco. They are young enough and have the skill set (so far).

            Machado has a shot as well. 1446 career hits and still only 29. I also recently read that he's played more games than anyone else over the past X number of years 5-8 years (I don't remember the exact number of years that were cited).

              I agree on Wander Franco, if he stays healthy he has a good shot. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an accomplished player in all phases of the game at such a young age.

                So far, he's average 179 hits per year based on a 162-game year (his high water mark for hits was 2013 in Baltimore when he was only 20). At that rate (his numbers have tailed off since going to San Diego), he'd have to go another 8 2/3 years at that pace to get there. Doable, but he'd have to go to 39 (he turns 30 on July 6).

                  Not to mention be almost 100% injury-free that whole time.

                    I wonder if Jose would have been in contention for 3000 if he had been in the majors all along.
