it coudl be because he plays the most important position and doesn't make a lot of errors.
Anyway, yes he was good, but if you don't think another SS with a similar BA (around 310) could have been at lreast as successful as Jeter in the same situation, then you aren't one to be talking about ignorance.

Put any SS with a .310 BA in Jeter's spot and they would have done just as well.

Jeter is one of the worst defensive SS's in baseball, doesn't have a lot of power, and apparently is such a great motivator that he makes an entire team of underachievers into World Champions.
