THE most overrated player in baseball.
It's overinflated contracts like that which hurt the Yankees.
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AND THERE NEVER WILL BE A MORE OVER-RATED PLAYER IN ALL OF SPORTS!
We always talk about how he would fare as a member of Kansas City or Tampa Bay, and we all know he would suck like a Hoover. Because of that massive contract of his, we will never know. The Yankees cannot even contemplate moving that kind of money for a glorified 2-out singles hitter. Too bad there isn't a stat for supposed "intangibles."
It's sad that you losers wait till Jeter finally has a hiccup to call him overrated. When he is batting over .360 and starting come back rallies against Pedro martinez in game 7, or going 3 for 4 in game 4 off beckette you guys are hushed up.
Jeter's play on Mike Lowell was an "overrated" play too right? Yea.
You guys are just jealous, bittter fans.
We'll be back next year. I cant say the same for the Mets or ReD Sox.

That should give you an idea how much credibility the clown has.
Thats a good point Bob, Nomar has been a better hitter than Derek Jeter for 7 years...Jeter has been a better hitter for 7 ALCS games (6 actually) so they are about even. Sure Nomar was brutal in September and October, but he will still win the AL MVP in all likelihood.
In all seriousness, I have been misquoted here for a prolonged period of time. I maintain that Nomar is the better hitter while Jeter is the better fielder. I maintain that I would rather have Nomar. Any Yankee realistic fan would concur
First things first. Outside of last night, the guy is almost an automatic hit in the clutch. And, Please with Nomar.......I'd take Jeter anyday. Rooting against the Yankees, Nomar made me friggin' sick. Trying to be objective here.
With all that being said, however, after 3 years of hearing about this guys "best baseball play ever" against Oakland (Vs. Steroid Giambi's 'lil bro),
I think it's time the guy gets his just criticism. He failed to run out a double play. He should have already been at third base when Enrique Wilson threw the ball away. Last nights bunt play-watch it closely, Jeter was surprised Pettitte threw the ball to him-his feeling for 2nd cost them the DP. (Oh yeah the run that scored got on base on his error) We've heard all the gushing over how great this guy is, and most of it is true. But Sorry Derek, no victorious fist pump this year buddy! Good thing you've got that Visa card for the off-season!!!!
