Awesome; he’ll have 3000 by 2020.
WIll Smoltz end up with more strikeouts or will Julio finish with more hits?
I’m pretty sure that John will win. If he finishes his contract with the Braves, stays in the rotation, and doesn’t miss major time, he very likely will be near 3000 strikeouts.
Probably, Smoltz is on his way to a 200 strike out season, I don’t see Julio getting 200 hits.
I would be surprised if Julio gets 200 more hits in his career… although I would love to see it.
For Julio to get 200 more hits, assuming it takes him the pace he’s been on since 2002 (at-bats and average-wise), he would get them at age 49. Any takers on that bet?
I’ll take the over on that.
August 16th 2005 and beyond, when Julio hits a homerun it will make him the oldest MLB player in history passing Jack Quinn of Brooklyn to hit a homerun.
