  1. Jim – your analysis is spot on Jeter is better than Murray .

    But I think you will have a much harder time proving Jeter is better than Arod.

    • JUST LET ME TRY, LOL,….I’LL MAKE THE NUMBERS COME OUT, LOL

    • TWASP, lol,….. you havnt seen my analysis of Jeter vs Ted Williams.
      lol
      Basicaly, in a nutshell. Jeter has enough extra base hits,…and consistancy, , to compare him to big time hitters.

      as I did with Murray, Jeter can get close to Ted Williams in my type of analysis.

  2. JETER VS AROD
    JETER 2546 GAMES, 11707 PA, 10381 AB, 3255 HITS, 519 DOUBLES, 65 TRIPPLES, 251 HOMERS, 1237 RBIS, 347 STOLEN BASES, 1024 WALKS, 314 AVG, 382 OBP, 831 OPS, 4657 TOTAL BASES, 263 GDP

    AROD 2496 GAMES, 11034 PA, 9551 AB, , 2872 HITS, 509 DOUBLES, 30 TRIPPLES, 644 HOMERS, 1937 RBIS, 316 STOLEN BASES, 124 WALKS, 301 AVG, 385 OBP, 947 OPS, 5373 TOTAL BASES, 233 GDP, WITH 2000 STRIKE OUTS.

    YOU ARE RIGHT TWASP, I can not on the face get a good enough comparison to AROD, however, maybe a little deeper on the hits side and Jeters ability to avoid o’fers.

    My problem is, It is not fair, AROD used PED’S, and had monster years because of it,…… It would be interestring to see what his numbers would be if he did not use PED’S,..

    To see even if he compares to Mike Schmidt.

    So, my answer to your challange is,…. I refuse to get deeper in AROD’S numbers, simply because I do not consider them real!!!!!

  3. If you go something like this:::::
    Runs plus RBIs minus homers
    Jeter would be 2831
    Arod would be 3171
    Then you take into account arod used PED’S,…. and even if you dare do the analysis, it is very subjective,…. because how many runs produced are you goingt to take away from AROD.
    I do not like to go this route,… but if i had to m I would say it is at least equal.

  4. As far as the bleeding yankee blue web page on Jeter possibly going for Rose,….. they take a braod approach, which is fine, but I believe the nubers I put out over the past several months from time to time, as to Jeter vs Rose, among categories like:: hits per game appeared in, hits per plate appearance, hitless games, and hits by exact age, I believe tells the true tale.
    Jeter has the only chance to get Rose,… If Jeter does not do it,…. we might have to wait 100 years before someone comes along and does it.

  5. Great analysis Jim……agree that Jeter is the only one with a chance to get Rose and I wouldn’t bet against the great Jeter. If he really wants it he’ll find a way. He’s a better athlete than Rosevwas so I’m sure he can find a position on the field…and at worst DH.

  6. If I may suggest the way to penalize Aroid…..is to take a straightline average of HRs over his career and then take the high aberration points and reduce then to the mean. The total amount you reduce will then become the numbers of HRs and RBIs you take away from his career numbers. Then see how they compare to Jeter.

    • I am not going to play that game. It is too much of a slippery slope. I wish I could, but at this point in my life in my fandom, I can not play that game.
      I am so steradfast against the use of PED’S in MLB, I have to stand my ground.

      Just look at recent times, Ryan Braub won the NL MVP and his team won the division,, JUST LAST SEASON, AND HE USED PED’S ( most likely).

      This season Melky was near the top in NL batting average, and still might win the batting title, and was leading MLB in hits, all based on using PED’S.

      So even with AROD, base hits and average would have to come down, and not just by virtue of taking away homers and maybe doubles,… but because on enhanved hand -eye coordination , by using, instead of natural talent, he got a hit, and came arounmd to score, a lot of times that he should not have. if it was FAIR.

      me playing the game like you suggest, to somehow statisticaly work the numbers, WOULD ONLY SERVE TO LEGITIMIZE SOMETHING I FEEL IS NBOT POSSIBLY LEGITIMATE , ON MANY LEVELS, GOING EVEN AWAY FROM MLB,….. INTO LITTLE LEAGUE EVEN,… AND ACROSS AMERICAN CULTURE.

  7. As a fan, I want too see it. I have predicted the date for 4257 to be around August 10th, 2018, about 6 weeks after Jeter’s 44th birthday.( they wil work it to be done at Yankee Stadium).
    I have imagined in my mind what the MOMENT would be like.
    That would be during his 23rd season,… 6th season after this season.

    It has got to be hard to play that long,…. But even though I could not possibly comprehend what it would take,… I still want it to happen.

    Brett Favre played 20 seasons in the NFL,….. and his body was beat up,…. I wonder the pain he must endure everyday just to walk.

    But Favre played longer than he should have, for the LOVE OF THE GAME, and even had arguably his best season he ever had, in 2009, his 19th NFL season.

    Jeter has this kind of LOVE FOR THE GAME.

    And thus, also being GREAT,. could come up with great seasons late,…. and make it a fait de complait he will get ROSE.

  8. Yeah Jim…I hear you…..

    “JUST SAY NO, TO CHEATERS IN THE HOF”(tm)

    Like Arod, MacGuire, Bonds,Sosa……

  9. twasp,…..LOL,.. PLEASE DO NOT BAIT ME INTO STEROIDS ARGUEMENTS,. LOL,….. I REALLY DO NOT ENJOY THIS ASPECT OF THE GAME, AT ALL,……

    MY FEELINGS ON THE SUBJECT ARE WELL KNOWN.

    AS I SAID MANY TIMES, I AM FEEL BAD AROD USED,…. I FEEL BAD EVEN BONDS USED, MOST LIKELY,.. AND MANY OTHER PLAYERS,…..

    IT IS NOT AN ENJOYABLE FEELING TO FEEL BAD.

  10. I agree Jim, feeling bad sucks.
