Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax, etc...

Derek Jeter is right up there with those guys in terms of on field greatness & name recognition. He is arguably one of the 15 or so greatest players of all-time. It's well-deserved recognition.

 

absolutely. not a Yankee fan but Jeter has earned it.

None of that contradicts anything that I said.  I gave him credit, I said he was one of the fifteen best players of the last thirty years, but not top fifteen all-time.

 

Wagner, Cobb, Speaker, Ruth, Hornsby, Gehrig, Williams, Foxx, DiMaggio, Musial, Mantle, Mays, Aaron, Henderson, Robinson, Schmidt, Morgan, Bench, Ripken, Bonds, Pujols

 

That is twenty-one off the top of my head and does not include pitchers (which you included in the original statement).  Adding pitchers:

 

Young, Mathewson, W. Johnson, Alexander, Gibson, Spahn, Koufax, Clemens, Maddux, Martinez, R. Johnson

 

At least eleven more.  I am sure that there are some I forgot as I just started at 1900 and did it from memory.  As I said, he is one of the top players of his time, but to put him in the top fifteen all-time, particularly when including pitchers, ignores a large chunk of history.

 

Nolan Ryan?
