And the reason he shouldn't be compared to Beltre is simple. Jeter has had very consistent career. Rookie thru retirement, he's been pretty much the same player. Beltre has been mediocre, average and outstanding. You didn't know which guy you were getting. In addition, Beltre has be superb since going to Texas. If you're going to penalize Todd Helton and Larry Walker for playing in Coors, you should at least consider doing it to players from Texas.
