A "Player" for the Yankees, and a disgrace to baseball as well as life as we know it. Whoever says he's the "greatest shortstop in history" is sadly mistaken; he'd be lucky to make it onto the top 10 shortstops CURRENTLY PLAYING. And the worst part is, he struts around as if he is Babe Ruth or something, as if he is automatically above and better than everyone else simply because he is the "GREAT Derek Jeter." This is his most unattractive quality (although he's pretty ugly now that it comes up...his facial proportions don't make sense, and his squinty eyes are terrible). His intolerable arrogance and smugness make it impossible to genuinely respect him--just watch him on TV for 30 seconds, and it will be clear how much he thinks of himself, and how he secretly feels that everyone should bow down to him. And Guess what? This is NOT coming from a Red Sox fan!
"Insignificant Lowly Player": Well Hiya Derek Jeter!
Derek Jeter: Hey! Howya doin man?
(Derek Jeter Secret Inner Voice): You DARE speak to Derek Jeter? BOW DOWN TO ME, UNWORTHY SCUM!
"Insignificant Lowly Player": How was the game?
Derek Jeter: It was great! We won 12-2, and I got an RBI!
(Derek Jeter Secret Inner Voice): Without me this team is NOTHING. That RBI was SO CLUTCH!
Insignificant Lowly Player: OK Derek. Nice Talkin' to ya...(walking away, to himself): What a nice guy!
Derek Jeter: Yeah man, same to you.
(Derek Jeter Secret Inner Voice): Aren't you gonna ask for my autograph?
The Short Stop for Yankees
MVP of 2000
1.) Shortstop for the New York Yankees. He is definitley not overrated. Though statistically he is not the greatest SS in baseball, anyone who has seen him play knows that in all other respects he is. Perfect example...July 1, 2004 against the Sox. He is a fanastic player, and is pretty easy on the eyes as well.
Jeter is better than Nomar (who's not bad, but still not as good as DJ) and pretty much every other SS out there.
The shortstop for the New York Yankees who is not as overrated as people think. He had more hits over a 5-year period than anyone in recent history, and he made what is possibly the greatest play ever during the 2001 ALDS vs the Oakland Athletics.
Derek Jeter is a great shortstop that will definitely make the Hall of Fame. He also has 4 World Series rings, which is 4 more than Nomar Garciaparra (who is excellent as well) and Alex Rodriguez (who sucks Bud Selig's balls) combined.
Most well rounded player in baseball. Plays up to his high salary, will sacrafice his body to make a play. (diving into the stands face first) Hits for contact and power. Modest as hell and a pleasure to watch.
Dude, I saw Derek Jeter walking down the street and Baltimore, he asked me if I was going to the game.
Did you get his autograph?
Naw, Neither of us had a pen, but he was damn nice.
A Baseball player for the Yankees who always gives his best every game. July 1st, 2004 showed his determination of the game where he caught a short pop fly nobody could've caught and couldnt slow down in time to avoid crashing into the Yankee Stadium seats.
non baseball fan: Why does Derek Jeter always run for his life on pop flies?
non baseball fan's friend: Because he's Derek Jeter
Great shortstop for the New York Yankees. Although he is not the best shortstop in the league, is best under pressure. He becomes a different person in Octuber. With his four worldseries rings, MVP Awards for the 2000 all-star game and World series, two amazing plays in the 2001 ALCS, all-time leader with 101 carreer postseason hits, he is certainly the best and most important shortstop in postseason history.
a shortstop for the new york yankees. a graet player but not the best. a very hansome man and a great sport
derek jeter hit a home run and made a great play in the same game.
