Just don't question Derek Jeter even though Mookie Betts hit virtually the same number of home runs in one minor league season (15) as Jeter hit in 4 (16). In fact, Jeter went from hitting 2 home runs in an entire AAA season to hitting 10 in NY the next year during the heart of the steroid era and eventually hit as many as 24 HR in a season. Both players were very young as they progressed through the minors so Mookie's surprising power was commented on extensively.He thinks just as many Yanks were using as Red Sox so I don't know how you can say he hates Sox cause of just this.
Everyone points at the 40+ HR guys as indicative of the steroid era, but what about the guys that would have hit 5 and instead hit 20?
