He's on deck, but there's 2 outs with Tejada at the plate. 2999 right now.

Edit: Tejada bounces out. Looks like this will extend to tomorrow.

If you count the number of times he "hit" (S)indy Sandberg he is well over 3000.

I think that is why I like Raffy so much. The fact that he did Sandberg's wife (well who didn't) and that the Cubs got rid of thim because they thought he had no power.

Here's a thought: how many hits would Palmeiro have if he hadn't used steroids?

considering the side effects of steroids he could have hit sindy a couple thousand more times, if he hadn't been on them

I'm totally loving the free MLB Extra Innings preview on cable right now. Just tonight I got to see Nixon's inside the park HR against the Yankees, a Twins loss, a Brewers victory via a balk in extra innings and hopefully, a Palmeiro base hit.

Awfully tempted to sign up for the rest of the season...

Same here, also saw all of those! (except the Brewer thing), I was switching back and forth while the Sox game was on.

Wow, Sosa is a toothpick, especially compared to his Flinstone days

I love Raffie. Don't know why, always did, always will. Media Trolls like Skip Clueless can eat me.. first ballot Hall of Famer.

Congrats.

What a great game. If you watched that and didn't feel happy for him, you aren't a baseball fan.

I was on fire tonight with jumping back and forth between games. Caught the Diaz go-ahead homer in the Cards-Astros game (now in extra innings) and jumped over just in time to see the CLee game-tying homer in the 8th.

He also ties Robin Yount for career doubles and Roberto Clemente for career hits.

600 career HRs is not out of the question for Palmeiro either...

How about that ending!

Palmeiro has had tremendous statistical career... and because of that, deserves to be in the HOF. EDIT: actually still mulling it over.

His greatness as a hitter was pretty much accomplished outside the glare of the white hot light of pennant chases and postseason play. If anyone thinks that's unfair, don't forget the following;

August 11, 2003 (http://reds.enquirer.com/2003/08/11/wwwred2znote11.html)

Palmeiro turned down a deal to Chicago [Cubs] before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. The 38-year-old first baseman cleared waivers Tuesday and the Rangers approached him again about the deal.

"I'm staying here and helping this team get back to .500 because that is a possibility and it would be a great thing if we were able to do that," Palmeiro told MLB.com. "I want to help them do it and in the meantime, hopefully work something out so I could finish my career here."

Yeah, I know of the corn cob dress situation. But I'd have thought that a player like him, nearing the end of his career, would prefer a chance to win versus padding his stats on a .500 team... but hey, what do I know. (http://www.greenapple.com/~ctimms/nothing.wav)

the only steroid he was on was Viagra. Hell of a hitter. He and Frank were the only 2 i actually believed in that Congress thing. Congrats to Raffy for a hell of a career and being one of the elite hitters to ever play this game. He is also a class act.

do u believe raffy to be in the top 20 players of all time? i had a discussion with my friend about it, he is now only the 4th player to have 500hr and 3000h
but he has always been on sucky teams (like the flubs) and i feel bad for the guy because he never had a real chance at winning anything, although he never elevated his team above expectations? so is he a top 20 player?
