If he just keeps up a 150 hit, 25 homeruns, 25 doubles, 90 RBI and 80 runs scored pace for only 4 more seasons, he'll basically have 3,000 hits, 1700+ runs scored, 1850+ RBI's, 600 homeruns and 625 doubles. And at this point, he'll still have a couple more years available as he'll be 37/38.
Side note, I never knew ARod was so close to 2,000 RBI's.
Its going to be interesting what Cabrera's numbers will end up looking like. Since Pujols has slowed down, I think Cabrera in the end could surpass Pujols' staggering numbers now. That is, unless Cabrera somehow goes through a Pujols-esque funk at around 33 like he did.
A-Rod is close to 3,000 hits (2,901 hits) and 2,000 RBIs (1,951 RBIs)....you know he wants to at least play long enough to reach those 2 milestones.
Only 3 players have reached 2,000 RBIs (Aaron, Ruth, Anson), with Barry Bonds getting very close with 1,996 RBIs.
As for Miggy, if he can stay healthy, he will put up some monster numbers. I know it will be a risk re-signing him to a big deal in his 30s, but the Tigers almost need to, as he is the face of the franchise. Not a major priority right now though, as he is signed through the 2015 season.
Miggy just turned 30 this season and already has 1,039 runs, 1,938 hits (should go over 2,000 hits this season), 406 doubles, 353 HRs, 1,222 RBIs, and a career batting average of .321.
