The Thursday Thinker: Elite company

Aramis Ramirez is a few doubles away from joining a pretty small group.


We've talked a fair amount about Aramis Ramirez lately as he enters his 17th MLB season. Last year Ramirez collected his 2000th hit, 1000th run scored, 350th home run and 1250th RBI.

Compared to those numbers, the next milestone ahead of him is somewhat minor: Ramirez needs just nine doubles in 2014 to become the eleventh active player with 450. If he gets there, he'll be the 40th player in MLB history with at least 350 homers, 1000 runs scored, 1250 RBI and 450 doubles. How many of the others can you name in eight minutes?
