Consistently, Jeter moves a step closer to 3,000

Posted on: July 7, 2011 11:07 pm
 
NEW YORK -- In the afternoon, we all tried to put 3,000 hits in perspective.

We talked about consistency, about longevity, about all that it takes to get there.

And then we wanted it to happen all at once.

Derek Jeter doubled on the first pitch he saw Thursday night, for his 2,998th hit, and we all thought he was going to make this night special. We did. He did.

"That's what I thought," Jeter said, in a rare admission that he does sometimes allow himself to look ahead.

And then it didn't happen, through four more at-bats, which means . . . what? Nothing, really.

It means that Jeter now needs two hits in three games to get to 3,000 while the Yankees are at home. It means that fans with tickets for Friday are feeling a little luckier, and those with tickets for Saturday are starting to think they may be the ones.

These milestone chases are always a little strange, because it's not like there's a real deadline. It's not like he's going to get it or he isn't.

And yet we still want to see the big hit, the big number.

According to seatgeek.com, the average secondary-market ticket prices for this weekend are more than $200, about what tickets were last year when Alex Rodriguez got to 600 home runs.

Each time Jeter came to the plate Thursday night, many fans stood. More fans cheered.

Jeter admitted he heard them. He admitted that teammates had said, "Get three hits today," and that after the Yankees' 5-1 loss, they told him, "Get two tomorrow."

He got two on Tuesday. He got one on Wednesday, and one more on Thursday. He doubled in all three games, his first three-game double streak since 2009.

He's approaching 3,000, consistently, and perhaps that's appropriate.

That is, after all, how he got this far in the first place.
