I wish . . .

Sports Illustrated would stop doing the insane poll where Major League Ballplayers vote Derek Jeter the most over-rated player in baseball. Year in, year out, he shows again and again how it’s done. On the field. Where it matters.

If anything is clear, those who are saying that are jealous and hating on a player. You can take this to the bank: If four World Series rings and playing in two other World Series does not put that to rest, Jeter will most likely get 200 hits this season, or come damn well close. I will pick him to start my team in any sport.
