Milestone Radar

After 15 seasons, might be a good time to see what legends in the making are reaching, or now have in pocket, some big-time digits. Baseball is, after all, a game for geeks to think about numbers. So chew on this:

Evan Moore needs 812 official At Bats to reach 10,000. He's 36 and not under contract for S17. May not happen. However, Moore is just 77 hits shy of being the first Capra-ite to cross the 3,000 barrier. Almost a cinch to happen this season.

Minnesota's Rudy Lombardi is 40 round trippers shy of 700, but after kissing it goodbye just 15 times last season, the 35 year-old will likely run out of gas before entering Aaron and Ruth country(take that, Barry).

He holds virtually every all-time pitching record in Capra, and Brett Tracy is also just 23 Quality Starts shy of 400. No one else has as many as 250. Tracy also needs 18 wins to reach 300. With two more years on his contract, this should be no problem.

Last season David Wanatabe surpassed Nerio Miller to become the all-time Saves leader and then cruised past the 500 mark. The 35 year-old is at 503 in this the final year of his contract, but he's also coming off his best season ever.

Years Active: -2 to 11
Years with North Stars: 0-11
Claim to fame: 1,496 consecutive games played (Capra record)
Awards: All-Star (1, 4), Silver Slugger (4)

Almonte was an on-base machine, with 7 seasons of .400 OBP or better. That was also his career mark and he had 7 100-walk seasons. He also scored 92 or more runs each of the first 5 seasons of Capra, and hit 38 doubles in season 4. A forearm nerve injury ended his record games-played streak, particularly impressive considering he was a catcher.

Wilson had a long career and finished it with 3 straight seasons hitting over .300 with the club. His .322/.381/.547 slash line at age 34 was impressive.
