New York Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki notched his 4,000th professional hit on Wednesday night – 2,722 in MLB and 1,278 in Japan.  All-time hit king Pete Rose told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that Ichiro’s hits in Japan shouldn’t count. “He’s still 600 hits away from catching Derek Jeter,” said Rose to Nightengale, “so how can he catch

  • Ichiro NEVER said anything about the hits so why do people continue to say this doesn't count for this reason or that reason. drop it
  • Rose is such a moron...nobody is comparing his 4000+ hits to a MLB record....simply that he has over 4000 hits as a 'professional'. The Japanese League IS a pro league, because they get paid. And it's no disgrace to have that many hits in Japan, they know how to pitch as evidenced by some of the best arms in MLB being Japanese pitchers. The reason Rose is saying anything at all is to try to keep the spotlight on his sorry asss. Hey Pete, YOUR NEVER GETTING INTO THE HALL OF FAME...NEVER!!! So stop making a fool of yourself, even if it's all your good at right now.
  • Well Giantsrepeat,he's done a lot more than you'll ever do.Wo's your favorite?A-rod or Micky Mantle?Pete Rose belongs in the hall of fame,bottom line!!!
  • Your right, he should be in for the numbers he put up, but keep dreaming, he's never getting in because he broke the cardinal rule in MLB. Since his career ended he has become a pathethic laughing stock. If he had manned up when he was caught instead of spending a decade lying like a five year old he may have gotten in by now. All he had to say was that he has a gambling problem and needs help, then maybe...just maybe baseball would have given him some consideration. But EVERYONE hates a LIAR!!!! When he finally confessed ten years later it was too late. So he's where he belongs, on the outside looking in. And that's a shame because he does deserve to be in for what he did between the white lines...it's what he did outside of them that cost him dearly.
  • Pete Rose was a Fantastic baseball player. But he is a scumbag as a person. He broke the rules of baseball and he knew it. So I say, **** you Pete, you are a cheat.
  • Pete Rose the baseball player is the greatest hits player to ever play the game. Pete Rose the person is the greatest guy
    to keep running his mouth. Hey Pete, take one for the team and
    be quiet.
  • If these hits count than, Warren Moon should hold the records for playing proball beating all the others in the NFL
  • I agree with all of the above
