He's 45 away. His contract runs through 2023 so unless the Tigers just release him and another team doesn't pick him up, he's got plenty of time.

Thank you Mr baseball man for all the entertainment. And yes, can't wait till you get to 3000 as well.

Sorry, but 500 home runs isn't the accomplishment it was, say, 25 years ago.  Get that 3,000th hit though and with the two you get a ticket to Cooperstown unless you're Barroid Bonds or some other juicer.

Even without 3,000 hits, he will go to Cooperstown on the triple crown alone.

I always enjoy watching him play.  Definite first ballot HoF.

27 other players in history. Yeah, it's still an accomplishment. And as said above, he's first ballot even if he retires tomorrow.

Yeah. His pace for the year should let him pick up another 20-30 hits and he'll get past 3,000 pretty early next year.

Go Miggy!

Glad it's finally over. He looked terrible at the plate yesterday - I believe he struck out twice - and just looked like he was really tired of the whole 500 home spectacle and just wanted it to be done.

What research did you do to decide 500 home runs isn't that  big of an accomplishment. Playing wiffle ball in your backyard doesn't count either.

He is likely the last player who will hit 500 home runs as well (although Soto might make it).

I dunno, if they stay healthy I can see Tatis and/or ohtani doing it. But they're both very young and have... Had trouble staying healthy so far, so...

Freddy should ABSOLUTELY get the NL MVP (possible Trea Turner).
