Other than Googling "Derek Jeter herpes tree".

That's all hearsay.

No need to convince anybody. We all know he's going in on the first ballot. 

...and damn it, he was robbed of the 2006 AL MVP. Better stats than Justin Morneau in every categoey except HR, RBI, and OPS. The other categories aren't even close in how much better Jeter was.

*20* fewer homers.  76 points lower SLG. Lower OPS+. The voters got it right.

Also 5.8-5.6 WAR.

Jeter is a no question Hall of Famer. He's also overrated.

Fun Fact:  Derek Jeter is also responsible for the only foul ball I've ever caught in a baseball game at any level.  (Including when I played.  😔

This is a great way of explaining it. Top 15 SS of all time,  but no real case for top 5. He's basically Barry Larkin if Larkin played on a big market.

 

EDIT: Also, Sizemore should have won the MVP in 2006 anyway so this is all a moot point.

I figured he would. They joked on the Michael Kay Show that he should go in an O's cap with the smiling oriole wearing a Yankees cap.

Jeter doesn't belong in the Hall of Fame until Bob Uecker makes it in as a player.

But he was Team Captain for the Yankees! Team Captain, I say! With all the duties and prestige that the position entails. Team Captain! AMIRIGHT???

This is where I get odd looks:  While I wouldn't vote Polanco in the Hall, if gun to the head, I had to pick out the better ball player, I take Polanco over Vizquel.

I would say "Rabbit Maranville says "Go Screw!", you better empty the clip, muthafucka."
