Yea whatever, more ******* Derek Jeter for you.
Finally, there’s this astounding number. According to Elias, it’s the number of games Jeter has played, in his entire career, in which his team, the mighty Yankees, was mathematically eliminated from some sort of race for some sort of trip to the postseason. One meaningless game in 20 seasons? Whoa. On one hand, it would be nuts to argue that was all Derek Jeter’s doing. On the other hand, what defines his career better than that? A man who lived for the big game -- and played nothing but big games. For 20 years. What better way to put a frame around the career of one of the greatest shortstops who ever turned a 4-6-3?
It'll probably be 5 before the season is over. SEMANTICS!
Keith had points but some **** was just ridiculous
like the WAR. Yea, he's not up there all time but there are only two SS's who are. Jeter's definitely a top 10 SS of all time and it's really just preference where you put him after Wagner and A-Rod. The MVP talk...I mean okay, he got jobbed one year but you can have that. Going after his postseason impact? IDK about that one.
But yes, this whole farewell tour has been a little sickening and he should have been dropped in the lineup. They made the Yankees success secondary to his tour, which a lot of fans are going to ignore because Jeter is bigger than the Yankees for most people.
But then those same people will ***** and moan about missing the playoffs for back to back years and where did it all go wrong.
