    Not sure why. It's odd.

    Due to discrepancies in Collins; hit total (either 3,313, 3,314, or 3,315), I waited until Jeter reached the highest one. He did last night, and is now tied for 10th place. Four more to reach this guy:

    Lou Gehrig is the Truest Yankee of them all!

    Looking ahead to next year, Jeter needs...

    3 hits to tie Paul Molitor for 9th place
    103 hits to tie Carl Yastrzemski 8th place
    104 hits to tie Honus Wagner for 7th place
    119 hits to tie Cap Anson for 6th place
    ...and if he can somehow get 198 hits, which is unlikely, he'll be tied with Tris Speaker for 5th place.
    My top 10 players:

    1. Babe Ruth
    2. Barry Bonds
    3. Ty Cobb
    4. Ted Williams
    5. Willie Mays
    6. Alex Rodriguez
    7. Hank Aaron
    8. Honus Wagner
    9. Lou Gehrig
    10. Mickey Mantle

    I'll be pulling for him every game (step) of the way. (I think he's pretty much done, but still, my heart is with him).

    Speaker still 200 hits away!! .....greatest defensive CF ever to boot....and you wonder why I ranked him 5th alltime??

    That's just more proof that people overrate him!

    It's because of Cap Anson. When someone counts his National Association hits, then Jeter is in 9th. If you don't, then Jeter is in 8th.
