Pete Rose does some arithmetic, and he's right, but I still want to take any opportunity to kick him. Yes, Jeter will not pass him for hits - won't even make it to 4,000 - but how did this question come up? Is Pete Rose the bride at every wedding or something? Jeter's response is the correct one.
Second, that particular record and the overall value of Pete Rose are overrated. Not valueless - it's a significant accomplishment. It's just not top shelf.
Plus he's just always been a jerk.
