My guess is that Jeter will end up with between 3,700 and 3,800 hits for his career.
That would put Jeter in the top 3 or 4 all-time for hits.
4,256 is too far out of reach for Jeter....as he would have to play this year and then play another 5 years, averaging close to 200 hits a year to reach and pass Pete Rose.
And to put things in perspective, the next closest behind him who has any chance would be A-Rod, and he would have to average 200 hits each year until he was 45. And he hasn't had 200+ hits since 2001. After that is Pujols who would have to average 200 hits until the year 2023.
I don't believe Rose's record will be broken in my lifetime.
