07.19.10 8 years ago 7 Comments

From the Desk Of The Obvious: Derek Jeter has been lauded as baseball’s most marketable athlete. That’s like saying that white snow is the best tasting of all snow. There aren’t really a lot of options available.

Top 10 most marketable MLB players according to our friends at the SportsBusiness Daily:

1. Yankees SS Derek Jeter

2. Cardinals 1B Albert Pujols

3. Twins C Joe Mauer

4. Nationals P Stephen Strasburg

5. Phillies 1B Ryan Howard

6. Rays 3B Evan Longoria

7. Giants P Tim Lincecum

8. Mets 3B David Wright

9. Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez

t10. Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia

t10. Angels CF Torii Hunter

But seriously, who on that list would you even think of putting in front of Jeter? He’s an ad man’s wet dream. He’s a tall shortstop on baseball’s most publicized team. He’s not quite white and not quite black…it’s like HE’S BOTH OR SOMETHIN’, MAN. Oh, and he bangs lots of hot girls. That’s really the only part that impresses me. He could hit .334 every year, but it’s still not as impressive as hitting Minka Kelly.
