Jeter Makes History

The Good

Isn't it just like Jeter to go 5-5 and hit a homerun to reach 3,000 hits in his career? He even got the go-ahead RBI to win the game. This is the Jeter we remember. Not a guy who was overpowering, but will still go out and beat you. His gangster has been reestablished.

The Bad

Robertson had a blown save and got the win. I suspect collusion was involved.

The Ugly

Did you see Price's curveball to Jeter for his 3,000th hit? That was ugly. It looked like it wanted to break, but after seeing Jeter's gangster, and readily respecting it, it fell in line and got hit for a homerun.

Jeter Thought of the Children

Jeter is mainly a singles hitter this season, but on Saturday afternoon, on the day where all the focus would be on his 3,000th hit, Jeter was thinking of the children. That's 1 homerun, and 2 more dollars for the Children's Health Fund.

Mark Teixeira 25hr = $50
Curtis Granderson 25hr = $50
Russell Martin 10hr = $20
Alex Rodriguez 13hr = $26
Jorge Posada 9hr = $18
Robinson Cano 15hr = $30
Andruw Jones 4hr = $8
Brett Gardner 4hr = $8
Nick Swisher 10hr = $20
Derek Jeter 3hr = $6
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $2
Eduardo Nunez 3hr = $6
Ramiro Pena 1hr = $2
Total = $246

Has there even been a more authoritative display of gangster? No.

Jeter is just amazing!:) I wonder what people who think he is overrated are saying about his performance on Saturday. He is all gangster indeed.

That was his best game of the season. What's the over/under on Jeter going on a tear of gangster proportions after the All-Star break?

College Magazine sports writer, Ashley Melfi, was on hand for Jeter's 3,000th hit. Check out her story with all the sights and sounds of the historic day.

I'm just disappointed he didn't hit for the cycle. What a letdown.
