Derek Jeter is now 60 hits away from 3,000. According to the results of the latest LATB Poll, he'll get them before the All Star Break.

It was a small sample size, but 61 percent of those who voted said Jeter will will join the 3,000-hit club before the Mid-Summer Classic. Another 38 percent said he'd get there after the All Star Break. No one thought it would happen at the end of this season or next season.

I was part of that 38 percent who said Jeter wouldn't get there until after the All Star Break. He doesn't look good at the plate right now, or at shortstop either for that matter. He's definitely on the decline.
