MLB-I agree with Ripken and Jeter
You guys must be kidding? Cal Ripken Jr. is the Iron Man of baseball. Of sports. He was unbelievable. Derek Jeter, really? Arguably the best SS in baseball. I don't give a s**t about the "oh he was on a product of a good team" -- he was and still is the heart and soul of the most glamorized team in professional sports. He has 5 rings.
The real ironman of baseball is, and always will be Lou Gehrig. He benched himself
because his play was deteriorating...it was deteriorating because he had ALS...a neurodegenerative disorder that eventually killed him.
Cal Ripken's selfish ass wouldn't take himself out despite how much he was hurting his team throughout the years.
