Chase-ing Pete Rose

The Bucs just recalled Chase d'Arnaud from AAA Indianapolis! Finally, d'Arnaud can get back to pursuing his declaration that he will have more hits than Pete Rose.

Just to recap, Rose, MLB's all-time hits leader, has 4,256 career hits. Chase d'Arnaud has 31. Only 4,225 to go!  d'Arnaud is 25 years old. Pete Rose had accumulated 723 hits through his age 25 season. At this rate, I'm wondering if Chase will have as many career hits as Rose did in 1973, when he led the league with 230.

Hey, I like delusion as much as the next guy, but this one takes the cake. It's even worse than believing that Rod Barajas is a legitimate major league catcher.
