    Jeter was the one that always drove me crazy. I'll buy that MAYBE in one of the five years he won the Gold Glove he was actually the best defensive shortstop in the league... maybe.

    Good get and good post. I appreciate folks who read other posts and either know facts or research what they are posting about.

    I already knew it though. Just threw his name in to add more power to my first post in the thread. Ripken won a WS in his second season, never again during his great career. Does that reflect poorly on his overall career?

    Perhaps not the most luminous star, but what about the Iceman, George Gervin?
