In response to CommyContrarianOnTwitter's comment:
tim kirkjian said no the former but yes to the latter.. he puts honus wagner first all time and another obscure all timer up there. he had jete at 6th alltime yank with mo at 7th, with yogi ahead in 5th. i say yogi has to b bumped off for the jete. mo at 7th seems right. ruth-gehrig-dimaggio-mantle-jeter!
Jete isn't one of the top five defensive SS's of all time but certainly one of the Yankees. He did however play very good defense and offensively was always one on the best in the game so my answer would be.
Yes, Top 5 Yankee SS of all time
Yes, Best Yankee SS of all time
Yes, Top 5 Yankee of all time
HOF SS without a doubt overall!
