BTW. He is ONE OF THREE that have 3,000 hits, 500 HR and a career batting average of .300.
The other two are Hank Aaron and Willy Mays. Not too bad.

Adding that would have made it ... closer to true at least :) But is anyone really saying he's better than Aaron or Mays outside Detroit? :)

Would've guessed Pujols over .300 too, but since 2013 his best average was .272. A-Rod was close too at .295

They are adding his name to the list of "the best to ever hit" not claiming he's the best baseball player to ever live. They are honoring their player's achievement, as they should. Some of the wording will be a bit of an embellishment, but it's allowed and really expected on a day like that.

And the stat @ponchi added is correct. He also has the chance to get to 600 doubles in the coming days. I believe that would be a list of just Hank and Pujols right now. Every club at this point that Cabrera enters is rarified air.

I’m surprised Ichiro didn’t hit 3000

ETA: never mind, he did and with a .311 average, but 500 HRs was never going to happen

Ichiro has a very good claim to being the greatest hitter of all time. He played 9 seasons in the Japanese league, which plays fewer games.
I say he is, at worst, second to Rose. I don't know how many seasons he hit 200+ hits.

It's like Nick knows something sad/bad/awkward is being mentioned and he feels the need to rise to the occasion. His timing is off the charts.

He truly isn't and hasn't been the problem.
