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

Frozen Four: Providence earns first bid since 1985

  What a difference 30 years makes.   The top-seeded Providence Friars (24-13-2) hadn’t reached the Frozen Four since 1985 when they took to their home ice to face No. 2 seed Denver (24-14-2) in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division I men’s ice hockey championship. Yet the Friars netted three third-period goals to earn a rousing 4-1 win and become the second Hockey...

Report: Discussions to bring NFL team to L.A. are progressing

At this point, we know the NFL is moving back to Los Angeles; the question is when.

He then said that the NFL has made it “very clear” that those three cities — Oakland, San Diego and...

Report: Chris Mullin expected to take St. John's job

For those of us who grew up on stories of Chris Mullin balling out for St. John’s as a part of the old Big East, this is a pretty big deal. The Hall of Famer is reportedly expected to become the school’s next head basketball coach. According to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein, it’s all but a done deal.

Michigan State beats Louisville, punches Final Four ticket

Michigan State, a team that was 13-7, 4-3 in the Big Ten in late January, has reached the Final Four. It’s incredible.  The No. 7-seeded Spartans defeated No. 4 seed Louisville in overtime in the Elite Eight at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse Sunday afternoon, 76-70. The win sends Tom Izzo to the national semifinals for the seventh time in his career in East Lansing.  Following...

Ex-NHL player viciously attacks opponent before game

The scene prior to a recent professional hockey game in Sweden was shocking, to say the least. Former Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers enforcer Andre Deveaux went off the deep end prior to a playoff game when he attacked an opponent before a game. Seemingly out of nowhere, Deveaux sprinted from the boards to center ice where he unleashed a vicious slash before jumping on...

Rick Barnes a possibility for Tennessee coaching job?

Could Rick Barnes trade his burnt orange to the brighter Tennessee shade of the color? Some college basketball experts think that may be a possibility. In discussing his recent dismissal from Texas, Barnes hinted that he may have a new job pretty soon: Rick Barnes: “Will I coach again? Yeah. Probably quicker than you think.” — Chip Brown (@ChipBrownHD) March 29, 2015 ...

Report: NFL looking into Bill Belichick's camera ideas

The NFL will start research and development on Monday into Bill Belichick's idea to add cameras to the goal line and other areas for replay. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March...

CC Sabathia goes off about spring training stats

  CC Sabathia is having a brutal spring, but he certainly isn’t concerned about what that might mean for his regular season.   Sabathia was knocked around Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates’ minor-league affiliate, the latest in a growing line of disappointments this spring for the New York Yankees left-hander. Sabathia’s spring numbers are not pretty. Sabathia’s...
