"Any RS fan that say they'd rather have the revolving door at SS that the RS have had versus Jeter is a LIAR. Even when it was debated who was better Nomar or Jeter it was a toss up. If it were the opposite (Jeter on the RS) RS fans would have picked Jeter"
That's a flat out stupid statement. Notin please read the thread befre you put your foot in your mouth..........
I just don't get why fans think its "embarrassing" to have a new shortstop every year. I mean, beyond the message board grief.
No where did I say or did anyone say we were embarrassed by the revolving door.
However we have said it would be good to get one for more than one year.
Toronto was changing SS's as often as Boston, and no one ever mentioned it.
And at the same time they always were also rans.
I'll take 25 new players every year if it keeps producing a winner.
Yes so would anyone but you know that is a dumb statement since it would never happen
And over the last few years, the Red Sox have been the most successful in team's post WW I history.
What has that got to do with that IMO that RS fans would have loved having Jeter here for his whole career
If having the same shortstop year in/year out was so instrumental in success, why did Ernie Banks never win a World Series?
Because the rest of the team suked. Just like it did for a lot of great players who never won a WS. Ted Williams, Yaz, Rice, etc…
As for Jeter, there was a time when he was great, but he is in the waing years now. Ditto Posada. And frankly, his ego is holding the team back. A-Rod struggles in the post-season and gets demoted to 7th. But even hinting at dropping Posada and Jeter in the lineup, and the complaints fly...
Man you really did not read any of the posts in this thread at all did you. It Had nothing to do with batting order for either Posada or Jeter.
Let tell you what the thread was---- it was did Jeter deserve the GG last year???? Learn to freakin’ read before you call anyone’s post stupid you dumb azz
