44. Face-plant catch - Jeter's snag of a foul pop up in extra innings vs. Boston. Nice play, but he took about three full steps before leaping into the stands. Dude, pull the chute! This play did clinch the 2004 Gold Glove for him, but Juan Uribe made a better catch in the '05 World Series, and he managed to save his face, too
This was my favorite one.

I like Jeter enough in that he IS a Hall of Famer and he IS a solid player, certainly a good number two hitter, even a great one. But he is not this year's MVP. He is not a Top Ten Greatest Player.


I think it's a travesty that he's going to win the MVP this year as a Lifetime Achievement Award. "Oh, he's kept the Injury-Riddled Yankees together!" has to be the biggest load of nonsense in baseball. Injury-riddled Yankees? When Cano, Matsui and Sheffield went down, they still had Damon, Giambi, Posada, Alex Rodriguez and then they had Bobby Abreu for over half the year. This wasn't a starving Lineup.

But he sure anchored it, and deserves the Award!
(I like Mauer, and Morneau, for MVP. But especially Mauer.)

That is my point! He is a very good 2 hole hitter and makes crucial plays in the postseason. I will give him that. But he's not a great all-around shortstop. At all.

58. Jeter-looking-thoughtful-in-the-dugout-cam - Fox once spent a solid 30 seconds panning in on a pensive Jeter sitting on the bench while the game was in progress. This wasn't Jeter sharing sage advice with the manager, or having words with a team mate, mind you - he was literally just sitting there. Sadly, they had to go back to the field for the next pitch, but as soon as it was delivered, presto! - right back to Jeter.

That's just ridiculous. What exactly prevents him from being rated as a "great all-around shortstop?" Can't hit for power? Doesn't possess a cannon for an arm? What? The guy makes every play at short, is one of the better clutch hitters in the game, plays (and thrives) on baseball's biggest stage. What's not to like?

While some of it is funny and some of it is probably true (i.e. overrated purely on statistics), the whole thing strikes me as one thing: JEALOUSY.

I tend to like/respect him because he plays the game hard and plays to win every night out. He also happens to be a leader who knows how to win, which doesn't show up in his individual stat lines, but certainly does in the only stat column that mattered for the Sox in 2005 - W.

People hate him because they are jealous and because gets a lot of ink for being good. The first part is unfortunate fact of life #45,678 and the second is not his fault.

Actually that's not Arod's position with all of the errors....not that it means EVERYTHING, but he's a gold glove SS, Jeter is MUCH worse than even Uribe. I'd take Arod over Uribe any day..and that says a lot with his defense.

I hate the guy and his overrated D especially. He's so annoyingly a "leader" that I'd probably not like him if I were on the team. Do you ever like the over-enthusiastic guy on YOUR team if you play a sport?

45. Derek Jeter: sex symbol. Sure, he's clean cut, but he also looks "like the Rock had sex with a muppet." This quote is actually from Jeter himself, in drag as a Yankees fan during a Saturday Night Live sketch.

They asked this on BBTN last night in the delay to Vernon Wells. He didn't say anything that would have been bad, just one of those "I don't know" avoiding answers. I'm willing to bet that he'd not get half the attention if he weren't playing for the spankmes

You're hedging. Total package. Shortstop for shortstop. I can, off the top of my head, think of maybe one in the AL (Michael Young), and maybe one in the NL (Reyes). I'd still take Jeter over both. And if you think Uribe is a better all around shortstop than Jeter, then I've got some swamp land I'd like to sell you! :smile:

Interesting, but I like Jeter and to be honest, some of those things just aren't true.

Jeter was given number two because when he joined the team, that was the number that they gave him. He didn't ask for it and specifically said in an interview that he would have rather had a number in the teens... I believe it was an interview I saw on ESPN, a while ago. I remember it because I always thought it was interesting because I figured since he's such a legend now, I don't see why he can't change his number if he really wants to. Of course, I'm sure people would give him a lot of crap if he changed his number now, especially considering all the fans who have #2 jerseys, but like I said, if he REALLY wanted to change it, I'm sure he could.

Also, Jeter is a gold glove winner. I find it hard to believe he's not even the best short stop on the team.

Plus, while a bunch of these things could be considered annoying, I don't see why it's any reason to "hate" Jeter. Any hall of fame worthy baseball player is going to have many of these characteristics. Sounds to me like someone just has a bad case of "Jeter-envy."

With that contract...sure...let me know how many GM's want to pay 20 million for what Jeter gives you... 900 OPS in a great year for him....otherwise mid 800's with like...what? 20 SB?

What a wonderful value. They would trade for his offense and for his drawing power. Not for his defense.

Better does not necessarily mean "more efficient"

It is more efficient to have Tejada on a team because he is better per dollar he is paid.

Jeter is still a better short stop.

Wow, whoever wrote that linked article sure had a lot of time and bile to put into it. :o:

I don't "hate" Derek Jeter, nor do I particularly revere him. What I find irritating is the east coast sports network that persists in shoving Jeter Greatness down our throats 24/7, just about. They come off as a bunch of fawning groupies. But they also do that, to not much less degree, for all the Yankee players.

Which is why I don't subscribe to their magazine, watch their station unless there's a game on, or listen to their radio unless there's a game on. Booooorrrrrring.

I'd take Reyes and Arod before I'd take Jeter, period. In fact I hope that Arod has a HORRIBLE postseason so they'll continually call for his head. I'd give up Crede and Uribe for Arod. This isn't the total point however. The point being that he's treated as a god and isn't even the best SS on the team, I dare anyone to say he's a better all around SS than Arod. His insane over enthusiasm, as well as his usual annoying tendencies (such as they point out in his extreme animation from any ball that's near the inside of the plate), not to mention other things, annoy the **** out of me and thus, make me hate him. Whether many of this worship is his fault or not, it still makes me hate him.

89. The Yankees $200 million payroll - See, it's this, and not Jeter's leadership that makes the players around him better. It turns Aaron Boone into Alex Rodriguez and Raul Mondesi into Gary Sheffield

90. "Knows how to win" - perhaps the single most oft-cited and utterly ridiculous of Jeter's mystical abilities. Apparently the secret formula is a 200-HR offense, mercenary Cy Young winner de jour and the best closer in the history of baseball.

The Sox had a 200-HR offense again, A starting pitcher with one less win than the Yankees top winner (Garland at 18), along with a pretty darn reliable clolser. How come they aren't in the playoffs?

I think PH13 realizes that, hence the teal. :smile: I don't think there is any debate if the Sox were in any division we'd be playing right now, but no use crying about how we played in a tough division, just have to get better for next year.

As for the people who say Jeter is great, the he won a gold glove argument doesn't work. He's a subpar defender. Every baseball insider knows he has a hard time getting to balls to his left. Why? That's just a flaw in his game. Its kind of like asking why can't Juan Uribe draw more walks? People don't like Jeter because he over hyped/rated by the media. Uribe's 2005 World Series catch was more impressive than Jeter's 2004 catch. The fact that he won a gold glove also indicates how overrated he is. Jeter is however very good at tracking down pop ups/fly balls. Instead of signing Damon, the Yankees should've moved Jeter to CF and A-Rod back to SS and perhaps tried to get someone like Glaus to fill 3B. Damon doesn't have bad range in CF, but his arm is subpar so instantly your defense up the middle has improved. I know A-Rod struggled this year on defense, but perhaps at his natural position he wouldn't have struggled as bad. Some of those things on that list were silly, like his birth year or month or who he's dated. But baseball wise, there are some good points.

Jeter is still a better short stop.

It's a tossup. Tejada's much better on d and year to year is as good as Jeter offensively. Fact is, Jeter's a good hitter, a mediocre ss.

I'd take him for the Sox salary not considered...but I'd much rather have Tejada, even without $$$ as an issue.

DEFENSE AT SHORTSTOP IS A BIG DEAL. GM's may want Jeter over anyone b/c he puts asses in the seats, but winning does too. Jeter's a good player but to act like he's better than A-Rod somehow, or some God at SS....

the fact that Jeter can be considered one of the better SS's in baseball (and he can) speaks to the regression of the SS position more than Jeter's merits.

THIS is why people hate Jeter: http://proxy.espn.go.com/mlb/columns/story?columnist=kurkjian_tim&id=2073780

an excerpt:

"Jeter has a nice face, a rugged face, a handsome face, equal parts black and white, the son of a black father and white mother who had simple rules for him in high school, including being home by 10 p.m. every night and eating his lunch every day. He was taught well, and he has never forgotten his lessons. That's why he is such a good player and team captain. That's why he is the face of baseball."

It's understandable that this would be a link from a Jays fan board. There is more distance between the White Sox and the Yankees. Not so for Toronto fans, who suffer the annual humiliation of seeing half their dome filled with Yankee fans whenever New York is in town. Think about how much Cubbie crap most of you are exposed to on a regular basis. In Toronto, it's mostly Yankee crap. There are far more "NY" hats worn around this city than there are Jays hats.

Jeter is still a better short stop.
Do you mean better with the bat? Because he is not.
Jeter has more power? Ummm, no.
How about better defensively? Tejada has lost 2 steps, and he is still leaps and bounds ahead of Jeter defensively.

Jeter is the most overrated player I have seen in my lifetime. He is a very good hitter, he is a clutch hitter, he is a smart player, and he is a good baserunner. However, I wouldn't consider him great at any of those. You can't knock what Jeter does at the plate, but he has always benefited from having great lineups around him. Take him out of New York, remove the hype, and he is regarded as a speedy Frank Catalanotto.

The thing that bothers me the most is the gold gloves. Jeter is one of the worst defensive shortstops in the AL. When you put a defensive liability at SS, a very important position, that takes a little away from the great average he gives you. Countless clowns believe the ESPN hype and talk about how great he is defensively, and it is a joke. He may not make a lot of errors, but he gets to next to nothing. Giving Jeter a gold glove stripped the award of the last ounce of credibility it had. Giving it to him a second time made it a complete joke; just as trivial as the Viewers' Choice Awards.

Derek Jeter is a very good hitter. He is a very good hitter in a great lineup, who has average power for his position and is very poor defensively. You would be dumb to say he is a horrible player, but you would be just as dumb to argue that he deserves an MVP.

IMO, Jeter's a good barometer to judge baseball fans. If somebody tells you that he's a good defensive SS, then either they don't know baseball or they don't watch the game. He's like Durham defensively. He has good speed, but it's like he's running through mud. He just doesn't have any range.

Offensively, the only guy I'd like better in the 2 hole is Ichiro.

Also, the whole Arod to 3rd is a joke. Alex Rodriguez is the second best 5 tool player I've ever seen (behind Griffey). How on earth could Jeter allow himself to play SS when he knows that moving to 3rd would be best for the team? That's not a leader IMO. Sure, the Yankees have a good shot to win it all again. They'd be even better with Arod at SS and Jeter at 3rd.

I don't hate Jeter. It does boggle my mind that he's so popular though. He's a poor man's Barry Larkin IMO.

Almost all of the reasons given, seem like pure jealousy. Hate him because he is good, and has had a tremendous amount of success. I in no way hate Jeter, I would love him on the Sox, but I'm not a fan either. The writer of this has way too much envy or Jeter, he probably cries himself to sleep every night wishing he was him.

Some of the reasons that seem like "jealousy" were tongue in cheek, but there's a lot of legitimate baseball arguments in there, like for instance, that Jeter is a pretty below avg SS.

Reason #101

New Movado watch commercial.

Derek Jeter, "Humanitarian...Leader...Athlete"

Give me a freakin' break.

I always have to laugh at all of the people who "hate" Derek Jeter. I like the guy, and actually, he's my favorite player in baseball. He does many things that simply don't show up in the box scores (not that I find him to be sub-par). A career .317 hitter. He's a leader on and off the field. Shows up to play (hard) every single day and doesn't give up until the very last out. Always shows up bigtime in the postseason. Etc, I could go on and on, and I'm sure you've heard it all before. Simply, if you "hate" him, you hate him, and there's not much I can say to convince someone otherwise.

I made it to 10. It bored me. I like Jeter. He is a hell of a lot better then Error Rod.

Yeah. I didn't want to read the whole thing. Good article but just many opinions I think. I like Jeter.

10. His middle name is Sanderson

And to think I ever respected the guy...:?:

Some of those are true.
Some of those are funny.
A lot of them are a stretch. I really couldn't care less if he was originally from New Jersey.

One thing though. I didn't realize he's already played in 23 post season series. To quote Run Burgandy: "I'm not even mad. That's amazing!"

That's a really good reason to hate somebody. :rolleyes:

Not even the best shortstop on his own team

That's my favorite. I don't even hate the guy, well except for my all-around hatred for all things Noo Yawk.

Of course, if somehow Alex Rodriguez made it here to the Sox, I'd manage to forget all about where he came from.

Same with:

9. Born in 1974
18. The body armour
23. Originally from New Jersey (is this one even true?)
32. Top step dugout Cheerleading
34. Gum chewing

All of these I think are silly reasons to hate someone. But hey, it's just my opinion. And then I stoped reading after that...

I thought I heard them announcing that he grew up in Detroit or something during the ALDS. I'm guessing that he was born in NJ?

Really. No teal. Of course they're silly reasons to hate someone. It's a joke. Kind of like how Homer Simpson hates Flanders.

Obviously that was his intention. But since I didnt even chuckle while reading that article, I find more humor in making fun of the author. His jokes are boring. IMO.
