Derek Jeter Will Be Your 2009 SI Sportsman Of The Year

Sports Illustrated isn’t announcing their Sportsman Of The Year until December 1st, but I’ll save you the wondering.

Last year I spilled a lot of digital ink telling you who should have won (Joe Maddon, not that¬†drug addict swimmer).¬† This year I could do the same (Ben Zobrist), but could it be any more obvious who’ll they’ll give it to?

Fifth “world title.” Broke (a minor) Lou Gehrig record. Won the Gold Glove and the Silver Slugger (just like Ryan Zimmerman!).¬†Even won¬†the Roberto Clemente Award (for a mix of community/on-field excellence, not for likelihood to die in a plane crash).

But most of all the bastard sells magazines.¬† Oh and really loves winning to an extraordinary extent, let’s not forget that.

Who else could beat him? Kobe won his fourth this year, and Phil Jackson his tenth — both are clearly more deserving, but just as clearly less marketable.¬† I can’t think of anyone else who could come close to Jeter’s mix of coverboyness¬†and 2009/lifetime “achievement.”

    how is phil jackson clearly more deserving? by standing there and going “pass michael the ball” and “pass kobe the ball”?

    Does anyone really care about SI Sportsman Of The Year? It’s seems convoluted to compare athletes across sports. Put this one in the “who cares” category.

    Don’t forget Jeter is acting in a movie with Marky-Mark, Samuel L. Jackson, The Rock, and Will Ferrel. http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com.....8;c_id=nyy This has been one hell of a year for the guy

    Ben Zobrist, really? 28-year old has breakout year, I’ll say it again, 28-year old. He had a ‘nice’ year, but it wasn’t that special.
