Jeter ties Gehrig’s all-time Yankees hit mark

derek-jeter-dive-into-standsI get sick of hearing people say that Derek Jeter is overrated. When you have surpassed the records of Mantle, Ruth, DiMaggio, and Gehrig you are not overrated you are just plain great. One of the things that makes Jeter so great is his modesty. He doesnt gloat or let being great go to his head. You never hear of him in connection with drugs or scandals of any kind. He is the ultimate roll model and professional. He comes to work every day and just wants to help his team win. He is a natural leader and doesnt like to take a day off.

At 35 years old he hasn’t missed a beat. He is having a career season sense being moved to the leadoff spot. All season long I have been hearing about what will become of Jeter in a couple of years will he be moved to the outfield blah blah blah. These are things you say of someone who is on a downslide. Derek Jeter will not let himself fall into that downslide anytime soon. Now he just works harder to compensate what father time takes from him. I truly believe that there is not a better all around short stop in the american league and he will be firmly planted between second and third base for as long as he wants to be.

    Alot of people say those kind of things about Jeter because of jealously. Out of him, Nomar and A-Rod, he has easily has the best career and will be the most enduring. Even if A-Rod has the better personal numbers, his lack of team success will count against him in terms of his legacy.
