Anything that'll make Dubya cry in his club soda is good news.

Well, it's Jeter's last year now. First Mo, now him. What a good run, I feel incredibly fortunate I got to see this guy's entire career, but holy moly time flies so fast, now I feel really old.

Still waiting for Bernie Williams to retire btw.

The last season where we get to see Jeter potentially get 200 hits. 193 of them singles.

Cute, here's a fun stat.

As a percentage of total career hits, Jeter has more non-singles (2B+3B+HR) than Pete Rose does. And PR is the most prolific hitter there ever was. Even Ty Cobb finished only a couple percentage points ahead of DJ in this category.

Most great hitters finish with around 75% of their hits being singles. Nice try.

We weren't talking about Pete Rose and Ty Cobb (the latter of who was a notorious non-power hitter). We were talking about Jeter, so I made a comment about him.

He isn't a notorious gambler or a racist asshole at least, so he's got that going for him.

Well in baseball see, we measure performance against others for comparison. So that's what I was doing. Jeter hits singles, ok fine. What's your main point then? Are you implying he's a shit player or do you wish a great player like him was with the crappy team from your city all these years?

If I was a fan of a crappy team then sure...but i'm a Red Sox fan

And a bad player? No. Just overrated, especially defensively, even in his prime (which I realize has nothing to do with my comment, but whatever).
