Rob Dibble is all up in a huff about Jeter not making the All-Star game. My favorite quote, "Jeter is the Jordan of baseball"

Here is the link to the article.

Anyone who would take Jeter out of all the players in MLB to start a franchise with is an idiot and has no credibility. Puljous and Tejada are two players that are better to build a team around. You could argue that Vlad and A-Rod also are better players to build a team around than Jeter.

There are a dozen guys better to build a team around than jeter, I know we could go on and on with this but how about Ichiro, or Bobby Abreu?

Also the New York Yankees are built around jeter, as evident that even A-Rod had to change positions to accomodate jeter, and even with about 200 million spent on the supporting cast they are still about a 500 ball club

who cares, Dibble sucks.

Jeter is the Jordan of baseball? We can see where his loyalty lies...stupid Yankee fan.

He might have case for Jeter being more deserving than Young for the back up role. I kinda just think everyone is sick of the same old guys all the time, IE jeter. Lets give someone else a shot, and I think about 3.9 mil people agree with that. If dibble doesn't like it than he should have voted 3.91 million times for jeter becuase 3.9 mil people seem to disagree with him.

Wonder if Dibble also thinks the playoffs will be a joke without Jeter this year? :redneck

And the LEADING vote-getter from the first election that took a couple months got 4.1M! Some people really want to see Pods!

Tejada is the best shortstop in the AL. The fans got it right. You can't be the "Jordan of baseball" when you aren't even the best at your own position.

Was there this much fuss when Jeter wasn't on the 2003 All Star Team? I don't remember.

Also, Jeter wasn't even considered for the final vote. Because a Red Sox guy got in instead of a White Sox guy, all of baseball could be in peace.

Wow, reading the whining and crying coming from that article made me that much more satisfied with stuffing the box for Scotty.:D:

I can't believe he actually compared him to Michael Jordan and said that he is better than the All Star Game. *****!!! Have a nice restful 3 days Jeter, I'm going to enjoy not seeing your arrogant mug plastered on my TV on Tuesday.

Derek Jeter's All Star Chances: NAH NAH NAH NAH HEY HEY HEY GOOD BYE!! :cool:

First if Jeter were the Jordan of Baseball he would have won on the initial ballot.

Second, this whole election basically proved that ESPN was wrong in its assumption that everybody likes Jeter. Jeter is not the face of baseball, he maybe the face of the Yankees but not of baseball. If he were the face of baseball he would have won handily no matter what level of campaigning the sox pulled.

third, who really cares what Dibble thinks

There is no way Jeter should even be mentioned in the same sentence as Jordan. Tejada and Young have better numbers than him, the media needs to realize that.

"OH MY GOD! THAT'S LIKE THE FIFTH ONE TODAY SIR!"
"I KNOW! WE'RE GONNA NEED THE S.W.A.T. TEAM SOON!"


The best SS in the AL, nay, the MLB, are Miguel Tejada and Michael Young, offensively at least. I am sick and tired of hearing about Jeter and his showy jump-throw that uses 150% energy for 100% effort. Lame.

Seems to me niether Jordan or Magic Johnson were in last years NBA all star game. But i guess dibble couldnt imigine one without them.

Hell yeah, this bizzare outrage over Jeter is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Worth every hour spent voting.

To all those moaning about Jeter not making the All-Star game, allow me to dedicate a song to you:


"HEY! Get-get-get-get GET OVER IT!!!"

My initial reaction to reading Dibble's assessment was, well, Dibble is an authority on baseball jokes. That's exactly what the Sox bullpen was when Rob Dibble was acting as its chief prankster. I laughed so hard that game he came in with a 2-run lead against the Angels, gave up a lead-off single, a sharply hit doubleplay ball and then proceeded to let the Angels tie the game with without hitting a ball ... fair.

I don't follow basketball, but apparently Michael Jordan used to be elected to start All-Star games. Jeter plays a glamor position with the biggest-market team in the history of the world. If he can't get elected to start the All-Star Game, he's no Michael Jordan.

Dibble remains an expert on jokes, though. Now, apparently, he is a broadcasting joke.

Glad to see Dibbs remind us that Jeter is the center of baseball's universe. :kukoo:
