    Who needs a fuckin study? I've got two eyes.

    And goodness, those quotes were hilarious. Ahh if the fanbois only knew about Jeter's "character" and idea of teamwork. And I guess he took $189 million for the love of the game?

    I loved how the first quote included the line, "I completely disagree. Jeter's a clutch player."

    I seriously doubt Jeter is the worst fielding shortstop in baseball, even if he is the second best shortstop on the left side of the Yankees infield.
    He's adequate, not horrendous.

    But the dumbass blind Yankees fanbois responses are priceless, as is the shit for brains writer mentioning that the convention (or whatever it was) was held "in Boston (of course)." As if that matters.

    Further proof that Yankees fans are the biggest assholes around and the NY Post is a homer Yankees fanboi rag.

    Pretty much every single statistical study of fielding ranks Jeter very close to, if not at, the very bottom of all regular MLB shortstops.

    And if he were actually the mighty Captain of All Captains, the very incarnation of winning in human form, he would immediately storm into the manager's office and demand the Yankees move the best defensive player on the roster to shortstop, and move a clearly inadequate defensive player to another position.

    Now that he's entering the rapid-decline phase of his career (34 in June), it's only going to get worse, too.

    The study also reported: Jensen's team of researchers found that most triples were hit to right field, where it is a much longer throw for the fielder.


    The Associated Press story on the study:
