Even though I'm not a Yankees fan Derek Jeter is not overrated.
Among active players his .317 batting average is 5th and his .388 on-base percentage is 16th.
He has played in over 1,800 games and has almost 1,400 runs, 2,400 hits, 400 doubles, 800 walks, 300 stolen bases, 1,400 runs created, 100 sacrifice hits, over 3,400 total bases, 50 triples, 1,700 singles and 3,200 times on base.
He has helped his team win 4 World Series.
He's already the Yankees all-time singles leader and he may eventually surpass Rickey Henderson as the team's all-time stolen bases leader.
He has played his entire career for the most popular and successful team in Major League history.
He will soon surpass Joe Dimaggio on the Yankees all-time runs & doubles list, Mickey Mantle on the all-time hits list and Don Mattingly on the extra-base hits list.
He is rated exactly where he should be.
