As most of you know Derek Jeter is closing in on 3,000 career hits. As of today he has 2,993 hits and the Yankees have four more home games this week before going out to Chicago to play the Cubs.
While I know most of you dislike the Yankees for various reasons, I'm not sure I can really see how someone can dislike Derek Jeter. He has played the game the right way, he has kept out of trouble his entire career, his personal like was and is always private, and he respects both the game and the franchise's history.
My question to you this week is more like a small paragraph than a question type of thing.
I would like to know what you think of Derek Jeter as a player and his career. Is he the one Yankee you can enjoy watching and/or respect what he has done for the team and for his own stats?
