Come now, Babe. Even you have to admit that Jeter is undeserving. Johnny Peralta of the Tigers is having a great year.
Speaking of Jeter, the Yankees went on their hot streak after
Jeter got hurt. Coincidence? Or, are the Yankees a better team without him?
Here's Jeter's stats: .260, 2 homers, 20 rbi, and just a .324 OBP, and a list of the players at SS who are having a better season:
1.) Johnny Peralta: (Det.) .311, 14 homers. 48 rbi, .363 OBP
2.) Yunel Escobar: (Tor.) .289, 9 homers, 29 rbi, .363 OBP
3.) J. J. Hardy (Bal.) .295, 11 homers, 30 rbi, .356 OBP
4.) Asdrubal Cabrera (Cle.) .291, 14 homers, 49 rbi, .341 OBP
5.) Alexei Ramirez (Chi.) .275 8 homers, 38 rbi, .331 OBP
