When will Jeter get 3,000?

Recommended Posts

http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/r/rodrial01.shtml

He's played 315 more games as a Yankee than as a Mariner, has almost 100 more homers in a Yankee uniform, two MVP awards as a Yankee, 0 as a Mariner, 7 all star appearances with the Yankees, 4 with the Mariners. Oh, and a World Series MVP award as a Yankee.

Its not close. He's a Yankee.

MLB supposedly decides by "what team was most "influential on his career"-Whatever that is to mean.

Most likely, if AROD finishes his contract as a Yankee, that is the way they point. Again, if he even gets inducted. The line has been drawn pretty hard.

Matsui won the World Series MVP, other than that...its pretty damn obvious.

Sorry, meant ALCS. I knew baseball reference was wrong!

The line has been drawn by a bunch of hypocritical assheads who turned a blind eye to steroids during the height of the era just like the owners did because they enjoyed writing about records falling. :rolleyes:

Those are the people that are making the rules though, so that is the way the game is played.

Point being that obnoxiously arrogant hacks who consider themselves to be the guardians of the game maybe need to take a good look at their own behavior before they disqualify anyone from the Hall. It was a crime reporter who broke the Balco story, not a sports writer. Why weren't they guarding the game while they watched Mark McGwire openly ingest andro and other "supplements" in the clubhouse?

The litmus test comes next year as both the dopes-Clemens and Bonds go up.

Whats funny is that if your remove steroids from the equation, they would both be locks to be first ballot guys - neither unanimous obviously, hell Willie Mays only got 96% of the vote (why the hell wouldn't you vote for Willie Mays?)

But they both had such bad relationships with the media it makes it clear they won't get in. Palmiero was much more well liked by the press and they shunned him even though he is one of only two 500 homer, 3000 hit guys in major league history.

Go back to whining. No one will respect your opinion because you're a dick to everyone.

In fairness he isn't a dick to everyone.

Far as I can tell he is nice to other Mets fans and some Yankee fans.

If Mark McGwire isn't getting in the Hall, why would ARod?

Look at McGwire. Look at ARod. That's why.

I'm fine with ARod not getting in for the record. Throw Clemens in prison, keep them all out of the Hall, I am totally fine with that actually.

Looks like Jeter is back. 2 hits tonight, Yankees rolling. If I were him, I would sit out tomorrow and ask for a better contract.

Another hit for the Captain. He gets 3 tonight, when I am there in person, and he is an automatic Hall of Famer.

They should induct him tomorrow.

He bats .250. Is he getting 12 at bats tonight?

We're talking about Derek Jeter...one of the best ever

At a time he should be celebrated, you continue with little pot shots, when in truth you were hoping and praying David Wright was your Jeter. Nope, guess we have to keep waiting for the next great Met, while Yankee fans have another all timer we can all be proud of

You can respect and celebrate Jeter's career accomplishments. And they are great. he has been a major contributor to 5 championships.

Fact is he is having an awful season.

And the HBO documentary he allowed and commissioned for cash payment is a lot like his contract demands; he asked for it. No one held a gun to his head to demand $17 million per year, nor to have HBO pay him a small fortune, nor that bloodsucker Steiner to auction off everything associated with this 3000 chase down to his socks.And if you ask for all that attention, he shouldn't be surprised when objectively people point out he has become an old below average batter with zero pwoer and a middle infielder with limited range.

Further, Jeter is a boring guy, spare banging starlets. Most athletes are. He is not Curt Schilling, chock full of opinions whether you like them or not. He is not a genuinenly nice man like Adam Graves(which is not to say he's a bd guy, but by no means a saint). With the press, he is a cliche machine. In public appearances, unless you are a hot chick, he couldn't care less. So the idea that anyone is going to wait to see he insights-45 minutes of empty cliches on HBO- is really a waste of time.

Ultimately if Jeter has a problem with all this hype, he can look in the mirror for the guy to blame. For example, Tony Gwynn didn't do this. In fact he hit his 3000th hit in practically empty Olympic Stadium in Montreal.

We're talking about Tom Brady...one of the best ever

At a time he should be celebrated, you continue with little pot shots, when in truth you were hoping and praying Chad Pennington was your Brady. Nope, guess we have to keep waiting for the next great Jet, while Pats fans have another all timer we can all be proud of

Who said Jeter had a problem with any criticism?

He, like just about everyone would, is looking to maximize his earnings both on and off the field. This isn't really shocking.

And the Mets fans calling Jeter out, that is comical like Jone pointed out. They long to have a player like him for their franchise.

Gene Michael and Bob Watson. Those are the real Yankee heroes of the late-90s to early 2000's.

Don't forget Howie Spira, the man who made it possible for the aforementioned to do their jobs.

Derek Jeter is a great player and he should be congratulated for his accomplishments. He has been the driving force of the Yankees resurrection.

Statements like these really make me wish the strike never happened.

Q: Remember when the Yankees used to win with Nuñez at short? Good times.

At least our shortstop is 37 and getting muscle pulls.

The story today is DEFINITELY the hit he got in the first inning, not team the taking a big steaming pile of **** on the field against a mediocre pitcher.

Which is the problem. The Yanks dropped out of 1st place and lost a game to the Rays.

At this rate wonder if Jeter is considering pulling a Joe Dimaggio and pakcing it in after this season or next. At $17 million per through 2013, doubt it.
