He's had an all time great career, but isn't it a little out of hand for a 70 win player? He gets the respect of a 120 player. Like an inner circle all time great, but the fact is he's just not.

1. He's a Yankee (Capitalism)
2. He's squeaky clean
3. He's good at baseball
But it's out of control really.
