I noticed for the first time today that both Reggie Sanders and Steve Finely made it into the 300/300 club last season… I used to think that this was a fairly major accomplishement, but the milestone appears to have passed me by without creating so much as a ripple. Was I the only one who missed out on this? Is this not quite the milestone I thought it to be? I also noticed that with another 20 homer season, Craig Biggio would join those other two players as the only active members of the 300/300 club, though ARod and Beltran are not far behind.
It also got me to thinking about Jeter and his chances of making it to 300/300. It seems pretty unlikely that jeets will have hit over 300+ homers when it’s all said and done, but if he does it, what sort of milestone is it assuming he makes 3000 hits as well and becomes the only 3000/300/300 man along with Willie Mays? That’s pretty select company. Anyone else give Biggio a shot at this club?
Anyway - thoughts, anybody?
