Michael Young is quietly having another excellent season, and has a decent shot at his 2nd batting title if Adrian Gonzalez falters down the stretch.  He has been a hit machine for nearly a decade, and has over 2000 hits to show for it. 

For most players, having 2000 hits at age 34 would not bode well for reaching 3000, but Michael Young has shown no signs of slowing down, having one of his best seasons this year.  The only other active player under 35 with 2000 hits is Albert Pujols.  If he doesn't get 3000 hits, he's probably not going to the Hall of Fame, but it is striking to see some of the company he is in even today.
