Wait, Adrian Beltre has 2,999 career hits?

Tonight against Kevin Gausman, Adrian Beltre got his 2,999th career base knock. And how quietly has this happened? I guess outside of Arlington, there aren’t a ton of people that realize that in a day or two; most likely tomorrow, Adrian Beltre will cement himself forever as a Hall of Fame player.

He’s a fun player. He’s had an awesome career. His career statistics that will someday rest eternal on the back of his baseball card are fun to look at.

So, history is about to be made. When it happens, we’ll do him properly here. It’s just hard to believe that we didn’t even realize until tonight that Beltre was this close to history.
