Weekend Choice: A-Rod or Jeter?


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.



Jeter-he comes through when it matters the most. A-Rod has failed to do anything to impress me since he came to the Yankees. A-Rod the best hitter, I really wish someone would give the statistics of A-rod getting a hit when it actually mattered (since becoming a Yankee)? I’m not saying he hasn’t but I would like an average. I mean he went 1-14 in the post season or something like that so how is he such a great hitter? I would really like someone to do a statistic on that even in the regular seaosn with guys in scoring position and we need a hit to win, what his average in those situations? Does anyone know?

Jeter Peed on My Rug

jeter = facebook

Derek Jeter = Niklas Zennström (3) Home Runs Skype Kazaa Joost all game changing..

Arod = MySpace Tons of potential but hasn’t taken it to the Next Level


AROD = Friendster
Had all the potential to rule the world but folded under pressure. Now all you get are excuses and the only thing that matters is that they didn’t win.

Jeter = Facebook
Slick. Everything comes naturally. Some amazing features. Even though it doesn’t have the best stats its who you would want to build around.

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!

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.
