Keith Olbermann blasts Derek Jeter’s farewell tour

He didn’t go as far as calling Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter a fraud, but we get his point – enough of all the slobbering over Derek Jeter as he plays out the final games of his MLB career.

ESPN’s Keith Olbermann argues that Jeter isn’t one of the greatest players ever; not even one of the great Yankees players to warrant so much attention. In fact he’s been pretty mediocre for a while now, he says.

“Derek Jeter is not the greatest person in human history. He did not invent baseball, he did not discover electricity, he is not the greatest shortstop who ever lived. And among all the terrific players in the history of the New York Yankees is his not by any measure.”
