Milestones To Look Forward To During The 2011 Major League Baseball Season

Milestones To Look Forward To During The 2011 Major League Baseball Season

I had a great time doing this prior to the start of the 2010 baseball season, so I thought I would give it another go as we prepare for the start of this upcoming one too.

And away we go….

Derek Jeter needs 74 hits to reach the magical number of 3,000 for his career.

Jim Thome needs 11 home runs to join the 600 HR club.

Mariano Rivera needs 41 saves to become just the second pitcher to reach 600.

If Ichiro collects 200 or more hits, he has 11 200-hit seasons on his resume – a MLB record!!!

If Dan Uggla can amass 30 or more home runs with the Braves, he will continue his record-setting as the game’s greatest slugging second baseman.

Mark Teixeira needs just 25 blasts to reach number 300 of his career.

Can Albert Pujols hit 30+ home runs and drive in 100+ RBI for the 11th straight season and build on baseball history?

Adam Dunn needs 46 home runs to reach 400.  Can his new home in Chicago become his latest launching pad?

Alex Rodriguez is preparing to hit 30+ home runs and 100+ RBI for the 14th consecutive season and 15th overall.  Can he do it again???

So there you have it – These are some of the baseball milestones that I will be tracking as the 2011 season gets under way.

What are you going to be watching for this year??

  1. I’ll root for Thome & Ichiro while trying to pretend that Derek Jeter doesn’t exist. 🙂

  2. My thoughts are along those of Pauls.
    A-Rods numbers mean nothing to me & should be blasted with ***
    How dare MLB allow his stats in the record books.
    Im not a big Jeter fan but I will say hes been good for MLB considering its gone down hill thanks to HGH and Home Run hitters. Wont beat that dog to death anymore than I have to….
    Rivera saving 600 is exciting. Even more than *HR *records.
    I hope Im wrong but I wouldnt be surprised if Pujols, Thome, Dunn, Teix and Uggla were all on steroids. What ever happened to closing in on 3000 Hits or stealing 500 bases?
