    Not referring to our esteemed poster, of course.

    It's dumb, but shit like this always happens.

    If you took the poll at the right time, Mark Grace would have been voted the best Cub of all time.

    I didn't know Ian O'Connor could vote that many times...

    I know a two-person poll I could take that would vote Barack Obama the greatest President in U.S. history.

    What can you say? People get swept up in the current moment.

    Did they also vote Hideki Irabu the best Yankee pitcher of all-time?

    Realistically, where should Jeter rank among all-time Yankee players?

    Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, DiMaggio would all be miles and miles ahead of him.

    Probably right after those guys and in a dead heat with Yogi Berra.

    For all their world titles, the dropoff is shockingly immense after the first few names.

    I'd say after Berra, but that's about right.

    I guess it's all in how you frame the debate and maybe he wasn't there long enough, but Roger Maris' two MVP seasons are worth any five of Jeter's best years.

    I put him between Brien Taylor and Irabu. :D

    I was thinking Maris, too, but afraid to say it out loud. I'm glad someone else was thinking that.

    BTW, did anyone read the recent biography of Maris? Looking for some baseball reading material, and he's a guy I'm intrigued by but don't know a ton about.
