    I don't think anyone would argue that Jeter was better offensively than Arod. That said, Arod spent more of his career at 3b/DH than SS so I don't view him as a SS. He last played SS regularly at 27. And yes, playing for the Yankees during that run helps but his numbers speak for themselves too. With his numbers, he's a HOF'er if he was a Marlin for his entire career.

    Jeter is more comparable to Larkin than A-Rod.

    I've spent years mocking Jeter and he's overrated by media people because he did it in NY.

    He's still 12th among all position players in fWAR over the last 40 years. The players in front of him:

    Bonds
    ARod
    Henderson
    Ripken
    Boggs
    Pujols
    Chipper
    Beltre
    Bagwell
    Griffey
    Trout

    That seems fair.
