Right on, Kimmi. The vast majority of us recognize and admire Jeter's greatness. And wish he played for us.
I wish the Red Sox had Jeter ONLY before and after we had Nomar.
Nomar, during his prime, was better than Jeter.
Nomar had a few fantastic yrs, especially the 372 mark. However, Herb Score was a little better than Warren Spahn for a year or two (and a host of other examples). Also no rings, and when he was jettisoned was the yr the RS finally won. A ridiculous statement.
I agree other than the rings argument....Charlie Silvera has one more ring than Jeter, right? And Jim Loscutoff (7) was four better than Larry Bird (3). And of course Ernie Banks was the joint worst player in baseball history because he won no rings.
From the sublime to the ridiculous. Granted, it wasn't Nomar's fault his teams didn't win. But those were marginal players who barely took the field and had little impact on their teams. Should we include bat boys, clubhouse men & trainers too? If so, Pete Sheehy had about 20 rings.
