Flashback: Dave Winfield, Paul Molitor get 3,000th career hits

Apparently, Sept. 16 is a great day to join the 3,000-hit club. Hall of Famer Dave Winfield did so in 1993, while fellow Hall of Famer Paul Molitor did it in 1996 -- both as Minnesota Twins.

The tabs hate him - even more than they hate the mayor: No cheap feat. They didn't probe the Iraq war as deeply as they have investigated whether A-Rod pissed on the floor of his cousin's home.  I think of A-Rod as a shale deposit in Northern Pennsylvania: Every day, he gets drilled from a new direction...
