Derek Jeter does have an edge. In every possible way. Including the one he got in Blazing Copper.

The homegrown Yankee is inching closer and closer to a magical milestone.

Think about it for a second. Just 27 players in the history of the game have 3,000 hits. By the way, none of them are named Ruth, DiMaggio, Gehrig, Mantle or any Yankee in the history of the organization. So yes, this isn't only 3,000, this is the first Yankee that will complete the quest of Holy Grail-esque proportions. He is already a first-ballot Hall of Famer. This just improves the resume even more.
