    BTW your "great compiler" comment is so flawed. Cal Ripken Jr., Craig Biggio and Dave Winfield (just to name a few) all have less hits than Derek Jeter, yet they have more plate appearances.

    And of course this:

    I still ask myself what the hell what he was doing on that side of the field?

    Why are you people engaging Ernie in conversation? There is no sadder excuse for a "baseball fan" around. He clearly doesn't know what he's talking about. We all know what Jeter has meant to the Yankees and the game of baseball. Let's keep this about him, and ignore insecure, uninformed clowns. Thanks.

    Heartbreaker; he made it look easy. (I have been A's over Yanks since jr high. )

    Wicked, wicked play. It destroyed the A's. At least for the Giambi era.

    He's an all-time great. No doubt about it. And a complete class act.

    If only he was positioned a little better or if he was a little taller to grab this bloop hit.




    (sorry, couldn't resist)

    One of Torres biggest blunders was bringing the infield in.

    What is crazy about that game is that it was Mos throwing error that lost the game. Double play ball thrown to CF. If you remember he struck out the side in the 8th.

    Just because I see through the Jeter Kool-Aid? He NEVER had to carry one of his teams. Never had the pressure of being a teams best player. He was a good part of a supporting cast. No shame in that, by the way.

    Rivera has a long successful track record; bad game at a really bad time. I was listening; Mo seemed shook(well - relatively).

    You need to go back on your meds. He carried the Yanks in many postseason games and series. He killed your Mets in 2000.

    One of his nicknames is Captain Clutch ffs.

    Clueless. Craig Biggio? Do you understand what a 30 point difference in career BA means? forget a season, but a career. Clueless

    He's also, what, 23? And having put up numbers so far comparable to the all time greats. He's personable, scandal free, an All Star MVP, and already has a Subway commercial, chief. As long as he stays healthy and avoids the whores.... if you don't think he's the next big thing, and the next face of baseball post-Jeter, you're nuts.

    I just don't believe baseball can launch anyone anymore to the heights Jeter has reached. I'm not denying he could very well be the face of baseball, what I'm wondering is will public notice or care? Also at this point, who doesn't have a Subway commercial? That ice skater with the soul patch does.

    Sounds like you had a lump for Jeter in another part of your anatomy.
