Manny is getting close, but it's amazing that he's never had more than 185 hits in a season since he's never played more than 154 games. With his skills dwindling, he'd probably need 5 more seasons to get it (making him 40 in the last year.) I doubt he'll get it. Franl Thomas is another possibility, but he's basically in an even worse boat than Manny. Thomas has never had more than 191 hits in a season, is 600 shy, and has topped 150 games only three times in the last 9 seasons. He'd need 4 more seasons just like 2007, but that would make him 43 and it seems very unlikely. If he were to stick around until age 45 or so, he MIGHT have a chance.

As a catcher, I-Rod is already the hits leader, but that's in part because he won't take a walk. If he gets close to 3,000, I can imagine pitchers getting him to swing at literally everything. After these guys, the imponderable of health is the big variable; Vladimir can make it if he stays healthy, but he'll need six or seven years.
