jeter's doing alright, he's basically having a good "singles hitter" year offensively and playing his usual shit D.

I just looked it up, I'm actually kinda stunned that Jeter's only had one good fielding year and that was 2009

I realize he's never been a good fielder (despite winning Golden Gloves for some reason) but I would at least have thought he would have been about average ten years ago

I think you missed the first decade of the "Jeter Can't Field" wars.

B-b-but what about when he dove into the stands for that foul ball or flipped the ball to the catcher and got Giambi out??!?!

those awards are used as cake icing for superstars having good offensive seasons usually and we have to remember that a gold glove was once awarded to viagra spokesman/anti-steroid activist rafael palmeiro during a season in which he played something like 15-20 games at first base and the remainder at DH.

I was hoping for half a season of relief work.

I didn't know the stuff about the split with his father and the bleeding ulcer in 2009. I hope he can handle being taken off the field.

My favorite Ichiro stat is that critics were prepared for his batting average to take a real hit when he played for the Mariners (he hit .353 across 9 seasons playing for the Blue Wave)... he finished his MLB rookie season hitting .350.
