my new favorite players

Well, actually they are not new, but with every A-roid, Manny episode, Tejada, Clemens, etc, it makes me appreciate guys who play the game right and play it well.

Say what you will about Jeter, Theriot, Fontenot, and guys in that mold (and I'm not putting those 3 on the same playing level), but they play the game hard and they play it right.

Jeter is ripped for being overrated, Theriot, and Fonty too, but I'd be shocked if anything ever came out about those guys being a cheat. 

Jeter is a class act, a solid player with very good career numbers, and what, 4 or 5 WS rings?  I know baseball is a team sport, but how many have they won with A-roid?  a-hem....

i loved Jeter's quote about the remaining names being brought out.  "Why would I worry about it?".  i think he meant that as sincerely as possible. 

I am 100% in favor of putting the damn names on the front page of the USA Today, let Selig banish them from the Hall, and then promptly say the 5 year waiting period is waved for Jeter. 

Sorry for the rant, but i am irritated by all the cheats (it happens in my business too), and it sucks for guys who play the right way. 

My soapbox is now clear.
