Garret Anderson Still Likes To Hit

Garret Anderson picked up 2 hits on Tuesday night to reach 100 hits for the 15th straight season. The man in an undervalued hit machine. Career: .296/.794, 1061 r, 2468 h, 510 dbl, 35 trpl, 283 hr, 1338 rbi, and 79 sb. He's been an all-star 3 times and won the Silver Slugger twice. Over his 16 MLB seasons he's played for the California/Anaheim/Los Angeles Angels and is now in his 1st season with the Atlanta Braves. The 37 year old's career may be winding down, but he's proving he can still hit.

Garret was drafted in the 4th round by the Angels back in 1990. He's the franchise leader in games played, at bats, hits, total bases, singles, doubles, grand slams, extra-base hits, rbi. Two years ago he collected 10 rbi in one game.

Like Rodney Dangerfield, Garret Anderson gets no respect.
