Jeter Shows Class

13 Mar

Kevin Kernan of the New York Post contributes an interesting piece this morning about Derek Jeter commenting on Jose Reyes.

Speaking of Reyes’ most recent injury, Jeter says, “You wish him the best. I don’t like to see anybody go through that kind of stuff. It’s just that he’s had such bad luck. You have to assume that his luck is going to change here soon. All you can do is be patient.”

While it is easy for Mets fans to dislike the Yankees, Jeter continues to show class and this is just another example of why he is such a special player.

Jeter or Reyes

If you were the General Manager of the New York Mets, and you had the current roster of the Mets as we know it, who would you rather have as your shortstop for the 2010 season, Derek Jeter or a healthy Jose Reyes?

This is not questioning their careers, it isn’t a debate. Jeter is a Hall of Famer and no other Yankee will wear the number two. His post season success and leadership ranks with the best in the history of the game.

Reyes ranks as one of the more dynamic players in the game, when healthy. His ¬†offensive success also sees a direct correlation with the team’s success. However, he has many years ahead of him for the Mets to ever consider retiring his number seven.

This debate is different. This one looks at 2010, and the current Mets offense. Who would you rather have?
