      A-Rod, Pujols, and I have a feeling Beltre will get it.

        A-Rod is almost a certainty and Pujols will without a major catastrophe. Way to early for everybody else.

          Whoops! Skipped over Pujols.

          Pierre is at the age, but he's hardly an offensive player as is. Once he starts to decline, I don't see teams putting him in enough games to reach 3000 hits

            ARod, Pujols and Beltre. Also picked Suzuki cause you just don't know with these type of players.

              I would love to see Ichiro make a comeback and hit 3,000, but I'm not feeling it.

                Yeah like everyone else I went with Pujols and ARod. Jones and Vizquel will retire after the season, I think Jason Kendall already announced his retirement a few weeks back, Damon, Guerrero, Tejada and Abreu are all pretty much done. The rest I just can't see sticking around long enough. Ichiro probaby has the best chance of the others and based on the last year or so that doesn't look good.

                  ARod & Pujols seem to be the most obvious. One not on the list who I think has a very good shot (barring complete breakdown) is Miggy Cabrera. He'll have near 1800 at the end of this season and is on pace to have near 2700 in 5 years - and he'll only be 34 then.

                    A-Rod is the only certainty on that list. I mean, how doesn't he get 128 hits with 5 years left on his contract? After him, Pujols is a near lock. 9 years to go and less than 800 hits, but I guess it's possible he could get hurt. Damon I would love to see get there, but I doubt he'll work again. Ichiro has a possibility. He's a great 8/9 hitter on the Yankees, and I would love for him to return next year.

                    How about a thread called "Who will wind up with 4,000 hits?" I believe only one player has any shot at this.

                    Or, 3,500 hits? Jeter 80% yes. A-Rod? It's possible. Anyone else?

                      Arod obviously.

                      This thread also reminds me that had it not been for the injuries, Chipper Jones would've most likely ended up with 3,000 hits and 500 homers.

                            Umm, Jeter? At this point, I'd put his chances of reaching 4,000 at 40%. Some will say lower, but he certainly has by far the best shot out of all the players with 2,000 hits or more.

                              I don't like the Yankees, but Jeter going for 4000 hits would be cool to watch.
