    I suspect this guy is a closet RS fan, attempting to stir passions; just like a troll would. He's also jete02fann IMO.

    I'm so excited I could just....

    ...could just...

    ...aw, forget it, it's not that big of a deal to Red Sox fans, anyway.

    We know it's going to happen eventually.

    Unless a large meteor hits Yankee Stadium.

    An awful thought , I know. But we can hope.

    He's earned the accolades he'll receive as a 3,000 hit man.  Once there, maybe the Yanks will put him where he belongs...at backup SS. They have been a better team without him in the lineup.
    Then again, as a Sox fan I would be thrilled to see him in the 2 spot of the Yanks lineup for the rest of the year - since he sucks there.    lol

    You'd think yankee fans would want to celebrate this accomplishment with other yankee fans?  But alas, yankee fans get more pleasure out of trying to tick off Sox fans than to enjoy their own team.

    Andrew, i agree, but had you chosen to ignore, you'd have no reason to be ticked off thus giving the OP his obvious desired effect...

    Congrats to Jeter! As a Red Sox fan, I've always respected how he carries himself and plays the game. A bomb for number 3,000 (just like Boggs). Nice touch for a great career.

    Great at bat; after going 3-2, he fouled off 2 before hitting HR!

    Derek Jeter gets 3,000th hit

    By Mike Mazzeo
    Special to ESPNNewYork.com
     

    NEW YORK -- Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has a new nickname: "Mr. 3,000."

    Jeter on Saturday became the 28th player in major league baseball history -- and first Yankee in franchise history -- to reach the 3,000-hit plateau when he homered to left against the Tampa Bay Rays' David Price in the third inning.


    At 37 years, 13 days old, Jeter is the fourth-youngest player to reach 3,000 hits. Pete Rose had been the fourth-youngest at 37 years, 21 days. Ty Cobb is the youngest (34 years, 244 days), while Hank Aaron (36 years, 101 days) and Robin Yount (36, 359 days) both amassed 3,000 hits before their 37th birthday.

    According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Jeter became the 14th player ever to collect 3,000 hits for one franchise.

    Jeter is the first player to reach 3,000 hits in a Yankees uniform. He's also the first to reach the milestone in a uniform of any New York team (Mets, Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Giants). Four of the other 27 players to reach 3,000 hits wore a Yankees uniform at some point in their careers (Rickey Henderson, Wade Boggs, Dave Winfield, Paul Waner). Waner is the only one to wear it after reaching 3,000.

    With his 3,000th hit, Jeter tied Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Fame right fielder Roberto Clemente for 27th on the all-time hits list. Al Kaline is 26th with 3,007 hits.

    Jeter got his 2,994th hit on June 13 against the Cleveland Indians, but he strained his right calf in that game and was forced to go on the 15-day disabled list. Jeter ended up missing 18 games before returning Monday in Cleveland.


    He went 0-for-4 in his first game back on Monday night, but rebounded to go 2-for-6 and move within four hits of the milestone on Tuesday night.

    Manager Joe Girardi briefly contemplated sitting Jeter on Wednesday night in order to give him some rest and ensure he would have a shot to reach 3,000 at Yankee Stadium over the weekend, but changed his mind. Jeter doubled in the eighth to get within three for the return trip to the Bronx.

    Jeter, who was selected sixth overall by the Yankees in the first round of the 1992 amateur draft, recorded his first major league hit on May 30, 1995, off Seattle Mariners right-hander Tim Belcher.

    He recorded career hit No. 1,000 off Detroit Tigers knuckleballer Steve Sparks on Sept. 25, 2000, and reached the 2,000-hit plateau on May 26, 2006, against Kansas City Royals right-hander Scott Elarton.

    Jeter, a likely first-ballot Hall of Famer who has been nicknamed "Mr. November" and "Captain Clutch," has won five World Series titles, been named to 12 All-Star teams and won five Gold Glove awards.

    He won the AL Rookie of the Year award in 1996 and is the only player in baseball history to be named both World Series MVP and All-Star Game MVP in the same season (2000).

    Jeter ranks first all-time in postseason hits (185), runs (101), games played (147) and extra-base hits (54).

    His seven career 200-hit seasons are tied for sixth-most all-time.

    Congrats to a respected and classy guy on his 3000th. Even though he's a Yankee.

    Nice exclamation point to a great career. Now, bow out of the All Star game and let the best SS in the AL start.

    Congratulations to Derek Jeter, quite a dramatic way to get #3000.

    If he were ours we'd love the guy. Now back to the rivalry and go Rays (today).

    Congrats! 1st ballot HOF!  I am a little sad Nomar faded so young and couldn't have matched him for longevity (as a Sox), it ended all too soon.

    Go Rays
