Tonight Craig Biggio got a hit for the 3000th time. That just sets another milestone for one of the best players of our era.
If he were to hit another 14 home runs, he would have 300 home runs, 400 stolen bases, 3000 hits and a surefire first ballot entry into the hall of fame.
He's a true athlete who has played left field, centerfield, second base and catcher for extended periods throughout his career. He has a career .365 OBP and 113 OPS+. In the mid-90s few players were better when he was consistently in the top 10 in terms of OBP, hits, runs, singles, doubles, stolen bases and walks.
This is most likely his last season, but it will end an oustanding career.
Congratulations to Craig Biggio!
