Spring training has kicked off, and so have the pointless controversies. The biggest one thus far involves Alex “Confessions” Rodriguez who is admitting to anyone who would listen to him that he and Derek Jeter are not as close as they once were. The fact A-Rod is married and has a kid and Jeter is a single-ready-to-mingle, should indicate that the two are not close.

Nevertheless, both are great players. Derek “Ice-man” Jeter is a winning captain. A-Rod is one of the best, if not the best hitter in the game. Both have hefty contracts, and are upstanding Baseball citizens – that is they are not Barry Bonds.

The question of the weekend: if you were to pick a start-up that had all the qualities of Derek Jeter, which one would that be? Similarly, who is the A-Rod amongst all start-ups? Let us also know why you think so, in either case.

  1. Derek Jeter = Feedburner and Dick Costolo. Since I don’t like Alex Rodriguez, I’ll pass ( he cares too much what other people think about him ).

    Great idea for a post!

  2. Hi Om,

    No David Ortiz..thats the best of both of them..

    But I am a little biased..

    Go Sox!

  3. A-Rod = eBay … does good things, but seems to worry too much about how he’s perceived… drives him make odd choices and has problems with his teammates and local fan base.

    Jeter = Google… a leader, does things that others can’t do at the times they’re most needed, has a certain mystique about him, you either love him or you hate him.

    • Facebook = Jeter
    • LinkedIn = A-Rod

    and just for the record

    • MySpace = Wild Thing
  4. Om,
    The weekend choice should have been some of the Holeywood starlets that will appear on the Oscars

  5. 30boxes would be jeter only because i heard they both dated mariah carey.

  6. Nice on Dave – “Wild Thing” forgot how old you were that you actually remembered the movie, Major League .

  7. Brian, eBay and Google are not exactly start-ups. Nevertheless, good example, though I would say Yahoo instead of eBay.

    Because eBay does really screw up at times. Skype!

  8. Hello Om Malik i presetn to you our Website Named Stufferbox. When have time please visit. I need help and advice from experts like you. I hope you can vistit us.
    Sincerely
