    Derek Jeter is overrated

    Anyone else agree? I mean he' a good SS, but he is WAY over hyped by the announcers. He really had nothing to do with that play that play he just made, and I swear every Yankee game becomes Derek Jeter love fest.

    Re: Derek Jeter is overrated

    Any good SS should know to check the runner if you know you don't have a play... The announcers just love to go gaga over him.

    Re: Derek Jeter is overrated

    He's a little past his prime, but remember him playing some great ball in the past.

    Re: Derek Jeter is overrated

    Yeah - the media/ america loves him because he's so accessible, and always does the diplomatic thing. Easy to market. I really think his play is average at this point in his career. Leadership is way above avg. IMO

    Re: Derek Jeter is overrated

    Likely the best shortstop of all time. I hate the Yankees and I don't like Jeter but he is a lifetime 317 hitter with a 459 slugging percentage and is having a great season this year. He will undoubtedly get to 3000 hits. The biggest thing is that he has never been mentioned in any performance enhancing drugs talk. He is good. I hate to say it but he is real good.

    Jeter is NOT overrated. Announcers are annoying with stuff like that, but Jeter IS an all time great.

    He's one of the few Yankees that I've ever really liked.

    I'm sorry, but having to hear a 5 minute celebration after Jeter routinely covers third base makes him overrated. He may be the best SS ever, but he's still overrated.

    I would put him in the same category as Tiger Woods. Not overrated but the media loves to talk about him.

    Re: Derek Jeter is overrated

    Would he be held in such high regard if he spent his entire career as a Ranger?

    Except he is having a better season this year than what his career averages are so I wouldn't say he is out of his prime yet.
