It is OK to hate the "evil empire" but Jeter showed how the game should be played on and off the field.

 

This is my favorite Jeter moment because the Shortstop is NOT suppose to be playing in this position in this situation.

Anytime he whines incessantly about a called strike on him, which is pretty much every time it happens.

My favorite Jeter moment will be his last at-bat.

Agreed.

I can agree with the flip.

 

I'm passed the point of hating the guy.  He's reached the status of any of the all-time greats, where you just have to stand up and appreciate what he's done.  I felt the same way about Cal, Rivera, Griffey, and anyone else that has had a transcendent career.


The kids are alright.

Time to get over the Jeffrey Maier thing. The Os had another opportunity to win a championship the following year and they blew it.

The Yankees suffered a humiliating defeat by the Red Sox in the 2004 ALCS and Yank fans are already over it.

There's nothing to dislike about Jeter. He's a class act and one of the all-time greats.

Bad call by the umpire, I never blame Jeter for that. That was one of my least favorite orioles teams anyway. I just don't like Jeter as a fan. I get to pick who I like. :)

There can be nobody who detests the Yankees more than I do. I was raised that way beginning in the early '50s. Yet I have always appreciated Derek Jeter, and the favorite moment cited by OP is mine as well.

Speaking of moments, did everyone like the Tony Gwynn tribute last night?


Terrell Suggs is doing all that he can fan the flames on the Ravens’ feud with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Underneath his uniform, the linebacker/defensive end has been wearing a black t-shirt with the letters “YBYSA” on the front and the saying, “You Bet Your Sweet *** I Hate the Steelers” on the back.

"I saw it in a store, and I was like, 'Oh, that’s nice for camp. Get our minds right,'" Suggs said

I agree, maybe mlb didn't want to bum out The All Jeter Star Game crowd.

Hitting the meatball Wainwright threw him for a double. At least Cal managed to put his over the fence.

that looks bad now. but Hammonds was a high profile prospect that had everyone talking. I remember hearing an interview about the scout that suggested signing Jeter. as the story goes, the yankees didn't want him, at least as a 1st rounder. it took some serious persuasion. but the scout said, if you take this kid, you'll be getting a HOFer.

 

that was a bold prediction. and an accurate one.
