Just remember Jeter got to 3,000 faster than Rose! So it can happen.
1 for 4 with a BB and a Run.
Pete Rose was still a .300 hitter at the age of 37, that's the difference. He didn't enter the decline phase Jeter is now in until he was 41. In fact, he hit .286 at the age of 43, so one could say he remained a productive hitter until at least then. Jeter by that age will no doubt be long gone from baseball. To reach 4000, Derek would have to play 6 more seasons without any further loss to his already decreased level of production. That's extremely unlikely.
No way Jeter will hit 4000 at the pace he's going. Just look how he's been stuck on 3004 for 4 days now.
3,300 to 3,400 max.
That's my guess.
FYI, I was making a joke with that comment of mine. All-star break, Jeter stuck on 3004 for 4 days straight, etc...
Your totals are more in line with what we're seeing with Jeter as his career now winds down. They're maybe a bit low though. He's got 3 years left after this (2 years plus his option). If he stays healthy he should average maybe 150 hits per season, taking into account his continued decline. He could hit 3500 before he and Minka sail away into their 30,800 square ft.
