I will be the first one to admit I never thought we would be talking about Derek Jeter and Pete Rose in the same breath, but we happen to be. Jeter has shown that he can still play the game of baseball at a very high level. As Jeter gets closer to 4,000 hits people will be talking about Pete Rose's hit record. By personal opinion this is one record that I think will never be broken.
Derek Jeter is 38 years old and besides shortstop there really is no other spot for Jeter. He would have to leave the New York Yankees to move to second base to extend his career. I do not look for Jeter to leave the Yankees. He wants to play his whole career as a New York Yankee, so beating the record that Rose has in place would be very tough. It is fun to talk about and watch, but it looks like Rose's hit record is safe for a number of years.
