    I am honestly shocked that only 9 people have 400 stolen bases and 200 home runs. Honestly that is a wow factor to me. I think I am underrating just how hard it is t get 400 steals but it is really shocking to me that only 9 people have accomplished that feat.

    Side note--The 9 people will Balloon in the next 20 years alone with all the multi tooled or 5 tooled guys teams seem to be building around. 9 people in the history of the game I bet we get 4 or more in the next 15 years alone.


    Cutch
    upton
    Reyes
    Braun
    Kemp
    Ellsbury
    Cargo
    HanRam
    Victorino
    Rollins
    Pedroia
    Jeter
    Granderson

    Now I am not saying all these guys will do it but some could and I might be forgetting people. The next to do it will be Rollins and then probably jeter...Rollins could get his within 2 seasons maybe.

    Rollins-168 home runs-371 stolen bases
    Jeter-239 home runs-338 stolen bases

    Damon also became just the second player with 400 steals, 200 home runs and 100 triples, joining Molitor. Jimmy Rollins will likely be the next player to do this.

    Also Molitor is the only one with 400 steals-200 home runs-100 trips-3000 hits{I cant see Jeter getting this}{Rollins could but I doubt it because of the 3000 hits}


    There I went above and beyond to share this with you.. I am lazy and its not like me so enjoy. If I messed up I am sure Jeffy or someone will fix it up for me Lol.

    I think Damon gets 3000 hits also eventually. He has had a really nice career.
    Yankees - Jets - Rockets

    I hold no grudge against him and i think he will always have a place with the yankees....

    but he did leave us the day he decided to let Scott Boras do his bidding, where Boras said "13 million for 4 years and no negotiating". if damon REALLY wanted to be a yankee he wouldve accepted less $$

    But like i said, no grudges, just dont make him out to be a saint


    Huge thanks to Elements!!

    Thanks for nothing "jej" for stealing my Montero sig

    Well he obviously signed for far less (like 6.5 or 7 mil I believe).

    But the demand for the Yankees to sign someone is always higher (which is bull).

    But Yankee fans shouldn't hate Damon IMO.
