    1928 Athletics?
    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

    If you go back just two years, the A's of 1928 had six players who would end with 2000+ hits ---- three of which (Cobb, Speaker, Collins) ALREADY had passed the 3000-hit mark by 1928.

    Al Simmons
    Ty cobb
    Eddie Collins
    Tris Speaker
    Jimmy Dykes
    Jimmie Foxx

    I did some research on this a while back and Speaker, Cobb, and Collins appeared in several games together but never all got hits in the same game.

    so a few teams with 6?
    '28 A's (if you count players already @ 2,000+)
    '71 and '72 reds (rose ends '72 @ 1,922) *** 6 players on roster who will eventually reach 2,000 hits
    '73 reds (rose surpasses 2,000 hits during year)
    '81 royals (may ends year with 2,003 hits)

    71 reds:
    bench
    concepcion
    lee may
    hal mcrae
    rose
    perez

    72 reds:
    morgan
    perez
    concepcion
    rose
    mcrae
    bench

    73 reds:
    replace mcrae with griffey
    ** foster was close with 1,925 hits

    Just an interesting possibility.

    The '95 Indians had 4 who are there:
    Vizquel
    Murray
    Winfield
    Lofton

    1 more closing in (did he get there already this year?)
    Ramirez

    1 more who should barring career ending injury
    Thome

    That's 6

    +Jeremy Burnitz and Brian Giles both over 1400-apparently falling fast but still starters and still could turn it around for another run.

    That would be 8

    +Longshot but possible David Bell-although he'd have to match his career high for 6 more years.

    AND Albert Bell who I know finished close

    + a pair of catchers with over 2800 between them.
