Move Over Pete Rose, ThunderTreats Joins the 3000 Hits Club

March 12, 2009

ThunderTreats surpassed another milestone in stride this week by breaking the 3000 hits mark. The ingenious writers have been grabbing the attention of readers worldwide over the last few weeks. ThunderTreats is the best thing since pockets. Sky is the limit for this crew.

To celebrate our 3000 hits and with spring training kicking off, it’s time to honor the other 27 ball players in the club…
1. Pete Rose (4,256)
2. Ty Cobb (4,191)
3. Hank Aaron (3,771)
4. Stan Musial (3,630)
5. Tris Speaker (3,514)
6. Carl Yastrzemski (3,419)
7. Cap Anson (3,418)**
8. Honus Wagner (3,415)
9. Paul Molitor (3,319)
10. Eddie Collins (3,315)
11. Willie Mays (3,283)
12. Eddie Murray (3,255)
13. Napoleon Lajoie (3,242)
14. Cal Ripken, Jr. (3,184)
15. George Brett (3,154)
16. Paul Waner (3,152)
17. Robin Yount (3,142)

20. Rickey Henderson (3,055)
21. Rod Carew (3,053)
22. Lou Brock (3,023)
23. Rafael Palmeiro (3,020)
24. Wade Boggs (3,010)
25. Al Kaline (3,007)
26. Craig Biggio (3,002)
27. Roberto Clemente (3,000)

Who’s next to join the club?? Bonds is closest with 2,902 but his only chance of taking another swing in a real game with be with a yellow bat and Dilo will be pitching. So I’m not going to get my hopes up on Barry finishing out his 3000. Griffey Jr. has 2680 but can his body hold up another 3 seasons to hit the milestone? It might be safe to say he’ll finish off his 3000 on a sega genesis. A couple other questionable players to take a look into the club but will be denied are Pudge(2591), Sheffield(2615), Omar(2657) and Luis Gonzalez(2591). They are too old and can’t keep up with the competition.

There are a few active players that are a lock in my opinion. Derek Jeter(2535) is arguably the most consistent and hard working ballplayers in the league. His love for the game and tremendous work ethic will take him to 3000 easily. Say what you want about the steroid bullshit but Arod(2404) is still a freak out on the diamond. He’ll end his career with over 800 homeruns and close to 4,000 hits. D-Bag Manny(2392) will terrorize locker rooms for the next 4-5 seasons and still put up big numbers. He is a dick, doesn’t make sense when he speaks, but the dude can swing a bat. So expect him to make it. The league is filled with young superstars that have potential to one day reach 3000(Grady, Hanley, Texiera, ect).
