Derek Jeter is 2nd only to Hank Aaron in total number of hits by a right-handed batter. That is one *incredible* statistic that few people know about - his lifetime batting average (with just a few games to go in his final season) is .309. Just to give some additional perspective, he has over 700 more hits as a Yankee than Gehrig, Ruth, Mantle, DiMaggio - anyone you can name, and he's done it in only 20 years which is long, but not *that* long. Here's a very funny video from earlier today - it's only 32-seconds long, and you have to watch it.
Bernie seems to get bundled into the Paul O'Neil, Tino Martinez, Scott Brocious side of the equation more than the Andy, Mo, Jorge, and Jeter - unfairly at times. I'm not sure why as I always viewed him as being a superior every day player to the former group.
