Target's retiring after this season. Plunkbiggio wrote a poignant post
today about how the remaining games are even more important. Just 62
more games, with reduced playing time away from home, to get hit three
more times to break the record.

There's some degree of urgency.

No one else seems to notice. It's all "ooh, 3000 hits" and "aah, more
doubles than Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron" and "wow, only member of the 3000
hit/600 double club" and "OMG! 20 seasons with the same team!" and "Holy
djoy, he supports the Sunshine Kids!"

And this historic record he is on the verge of shattering, a record that
has stood for over one hundred years, is utterly ignored.
