* With his next save
Mariano Rivera will join Trevor Hoffman as the only members of the
500-save club. And it’ll be a while before there’s a third member,
because the active leaders after Rivera are Billy Wagner (385), Troy
Percival (358), Jason Isringhausen (293), and Armando Benitez (289).
The next guy to reach 500? Francisco Rodriguez is eighth on the active list with 228 and he’s the only guy in the top 10 who’s under 34 years old.
* Alex Rodriguez’s homer last night
tied him with Reggie Jackson for 11th place on the all-time list at
563. Next up for Rodriguez is Rafael Palmeiro with 569 and and Harmon
Killebrew with 573, but he’ll likely have to wait until next season to
pass Mark McGwire at 583.
* And just to show how different milestones are in New York compared to Tampa Bay, Jason Bartlett set a Rays franchise record last night by extending his hitting streak to … 19 games. Quinton McCracken held the previous record at 18. Of course he did.
