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

Fresh off news that Josh Hamilton’s disastrous tenure with the Los Angeles Angels is likely over, comes this report from Yahoo’s Jeff Passan indicating that the Angels are in “deep discussions” with the Texas Rangers in a deal surrounding Hamilton.

Crabtree on joining Raiders: 'Ain't got nothing to lose'

The San Francisco 49ers let wide receiver Michael Crabtree test free agency after an uneventful year that saw him put up the worst full season of an already average career. Crabtree, who actually sat on the market for quite a long time, is going to now test his luck with the Oakland Raiders. Chatting about his new club after working out with the Raiders this week, Crabtree admitted...

Report: Hardy gets in 'verbal altercation' with teammate

New Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy may not actually find the field in the regular season until Week 12 after the league suspended him for 10 games this past week. This doesn’t mean that Hardy won’t be making news around Cowboys camp until he actually suits up for the team. Friday’s news is not of the good variety. Hardy, who sat out all but one game last season...

NFL exec compares Jameis Winson to JaMarcus Russell

Jameis Winston arguably is one of the most heavily scrutinized football players in the history of the NFL Draft and an unnamed league personnel personnel executive made one of the most unflattering comparisons that can be made when predicting the career prospects of a future NFL quarterback.

Report: Chris Sale wanted to fight Yordano Ventura

Chris Sale reportedly still had some unfinished business with Yordano Ventura following his ejection Thursday night. The Chicago White Sox ace was in the middle of the all-out, bench-clearing brawl that broke out in the seventh inning of last night’s game against the Kansas City Royals. Sale, who was one of five players ejected from the game, was all sorts of fired up after Adam...

NFL does not care about Rams' future in St. Louis

Earlier this week, St. Louis’s stadium task force traveled to New York City to meet with the NFL and present their plans for a new riverfront stadium by the Arch. Rams COO Kevin Demoff was there, but don’t kid yourselves. Demoff’s presence was just a courtesy. Barring unforeseen circumstances, the Rams are as good as gone from St. Louis next season. When a person as rich...

Eagles VP Ed Marynowitz says he's not Chip Kelly's 'yes man'

Jonathan Papelbon wants out of Philadelphia

For everything that’s gone wrong in Philadelphia this season, one of the things that has gone *right* is the performance of closer Jonathan Papelbon. Papelbon has thrown 6 1/3 innings, struck out six hitters, hasn’t allowed a run or walked a hitter, and has converted all three of his save opportunities. But because the Phillies are awful, Papelbon hasn’t gotten much action...

Is Le'Veon Bell's knee finally close to healing?

Pittsburgh Steelers’ running back Le’Veon Bell injured his right knee late last December. The hyperextension he suffered was reportedy only going to take a few weeks to heal. So by late in January, Bell reported that his knee was “close to 100 percent.” That was pretty on-par to the timeline for healing. Somehow, nearly three months later, we are hearing another report...
