|Derek Jeter acknowledges the|
Target Field crowd after being
pulled from his final All-Star Game.
Well, yeah. Derek Jeter. Of course he's the pic of the week. The All-Star Game was the event of the week, and he was the focus of the All-Star Game.
He's not the best shortstop in the American League this year, but he's not the worst either. He's not the greatest shortstop in baseball history -- that remains Honus Wagner, as it has been for a century or more -- but I think he's the second best shortstop.
A great player who somehow manages to be at once both overrated and underrated. Tuesday was a good day to appreciate him.
