They're saying Derek Jeter has 1999 hits, so his next will be the big 2000. But, this is actually nottrue. Right now, he has 2141 hits--1999 regular season and 142 post season hits (when hits wereeven harder to come by). The terminology needs to be changed, but baseball consumers are passive & malleable, good members of the proletariat, so they dare not speak against the corrupt authority. Except me. I just don't like bullies & phonies. Derek Jeter is going for career hit #2142.Tweet
