Who Had The Better Career: Jeter Or Rivera?
Yankees announcer Michael Kay was on the Dan Patrick Show today and they raised an interesting question: Whose career would you rather have: Derek Jeters or Mariano Riveras? Secondly: would either make it to the Yankees Mt. Rushmore as one of the teams top four players ever?
As for Rushmore: I think Jeter should be there, not because hes necessarily among the four best Yankees players, but because he represents and era and I feel like those Rushmore conversations should encompass that. Give me Babe, DiMaggio, Mantle and Jeter.
