Alex Rodregues is an amazing hitter he started his career with the Mariners. He played shortstop for the Mariners his whole rookie career. He then was traded to the New York Yankees as a third baseman and a 4 hitter. Later on he came out publicly and announced his use of steroids. Which admitting to it the punishment is not as bad. He told all of his fans that he would never do steroids again then 3 years later there was a bust of many baseball players that where using steriods. He ended up being one of those players to take them after he said he never would again. He then had to sit out a whole seasons worth of games as a veteran coming close to returning. He still plays now for the Yankees as a third baseman. He will always go down in history as a cheater.

Starling Castro is one of the worst fielders in the history of baseball. He was drafted to the Cubs. He now resides as the Yankees starting shortstop. He will never compare to Derek Jeter. The captain was one of the best fielder to play the game and for the Yankees. Castro will not be able to fill his shoes this year on shortstop. He does not have the mental capability to play the game. Secondly he does not have the leadership to play his position. Lastly he doesn't have the skill to lead the Yankees. This is why Castro will not play to up to par this year.

Babe Ruth is a house hold for all of his great achievements. He was one of the greatest baseball players of the 1920. He played multiple major league positions but what made him famous was his bat. He was a outstanding power hitter. What most people don't know about how hard it would have been to hit so many in the twentys. The twentys was well before the drying process of maple and ash we're invented so his bat was of 50 oz compared to the 30 oz bats today. This era was also before there was any porfomance enhancing drugs on the market so there could have been no possible steriod use. The equipment was also not up to par with the gloves after small and not much padding and the cleats not very well made. These are all things that major league players today have access to. To conclude Babe Ruth is one of the best power hitters to play the game.

Have you ever sat down and watched a baseball game? Have you ever sat down and watched a game with Derek Jeter on the field? Every time Jeter is on the field he manages to do something great. Wether it is diving for a ball, hitting a guy in, or making a great throw. Jeter even caned the phrase "Jeter throw" since he made so many throws in mid air. Derek is one of few players to achieve over 3,000 hits in his career. Witch is a stat that has only been achieved by only 29 all time players. Jeter has also never been ejected from a game due to arguing with an umpire about a bad call. Jeter isn't just great for what he did on the field either, Derek has started up many charities and organizations to help people in need because he feels he needs to give back. These are just a few of the reasons of why Jeter is and always will be one of the greats.
