    [QUOTE]if you ask most Sox fans this scenario: Sox up by one in the 9th, Yankees at the plate, bases loaded, two outs, Jeter stepping in at the plate - would you be experiencing the pucker facter to the nth degree? I'm betting most Sox fans would. In the above scenario, with an out at any base a groundball would be ideal. MLB leader groundball rate by 5 % points!   Jeter

    At one time, yes.  Not anymore.

    [QUOTE]He has 5 Gold Gloves; nothing to sneeze at, (especially since no RS SS ever had as many) get your facts straight; especially when you coin any proof slogan.

    You are correct, only one Gold Glove has been earned by a Red Sox shortstop. Rick Burleson got one in 1979.

    Good stats, but I'm still thinking that most Sox fans' (me included) pucker factor would still be pegging high.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Do you agree with the New York Times Michael Sololove that Derek Jeter is now a below average MLB shortstop? :  So he threw six balls away on grounders Jeter or Lowrie "wouldn't have reached." The batter ends up on second base. Who do you want at short?

    You're kidding, right?  Did you miss the part about having twice as many chances?  You are going to take 6 extra bases over 200+ outs?
