What can I say? Ever since 1995, Derek Jeter has been a great Yankee, but when he retires you will see Jeter's name in Monument Park with the likes of Gehrig, Ruth and Mantle.
A lot of people will call him an awful defensive shortstop because of advanced sabermetrics, but if you actually watched him throughout his career then you would have seen an amazing player making plays nobody has ever seen before. Derek Jeter put his heart and soul into each and every game. He encapsulates what a Yankee is.
If watching him does not convince you that he is an all-time great, then his stats will: most stolen bases by a Yankee (339), most hits by a Yankee (3,088) and most games played as a Yankee (2,402). But Jeter's most important accomplishments are his five (and counting) World Series rings.
