Sick of the Jeter talk

Yeah, so am I, but probably for a different reason. Two of my favorite players and one of the most exciting players in recent history to watch all have valid reasons to be in arms when there is the comment that Jeter is going to be the first Yankee to get to 3,000 hits. Dave Winfield - 1172 games as a Yankee, over 5000 PA, career 3110 hits Wade Boggs - 602 games as a Yankee, 2600 PA, career 3010 hits Rickey Henderson - 596 games, over 2700 PA as a Yankee, career 3055 hits It is frustrating to me how much ESPN and other national media is all about Jeter. The man is not an All-Star anymore (he should be hitting 9th), and his fielding has been poor his entire career. Jeter is absolutely a HOF player and one of the better players we've seen in recent memory, but I'd take a peak Barry Larkin over Jeter anyday and Larkin isn't viewed as a sure Hall of Famer. With Chipper nearing a huge milestone as well, can we take the focus off of Jeter for just a second?
