    Re: Loria agrees to sell Marlins to Sherman/Jeter group. Jeter to take the role of CE

    Man,


    I would have loved to see all you posters comments about Babe Ruth after the 1927 season. About his eating habits, about his womanizing about his feud ith Gehrig etc.,ything except what a great ballplayer he was.


    It is obvious why there are so few posts in the baseball forums. It is poisonous. Just MHO

    I don't really have a problem with him owning a team. He's retired. He doesn't owe the Yankees anything anymore.

    My comments about Jeter have nothing to do with his abilities and accomplishments as a ballplayer - just stating facts about his captaincy.

    People wax nostalgic about what a great leader he was, yet there's plenty of evidence that paints Jeter as a horrible captain who put his ego and personal feelings ahead of what was best for the ballclub. Especially when you look at how he completely froze out A-Rod when he was traded to the Yankees.

    Not sure how any of that has to do with Babe Ruth's off-the-field shenanigans.

    And for the record, Babe and Lou were still on great terms after the '27 season. Their personal issues started many years later...

    I doubt that. He'll work hard, but he won't roll up his sleeves. He's too impeccable for that.
