    Eduardo Nunez was an upgrade over Derek Jeter

      Where was Jeter when team moneybags needed him.  He batted a paltry .200 and slugged the same pathetic number.  He whiffed on 40% of his at bats while botching a ground ball in extra innings.(He should have been charged with an error.)

      Meanwhile Nunez stepped in and scored all of the Yankee runs for the last three games of the Yankees collapse.  He even knocked in half of the runs with an Un-Jeteresque home run. 

      Jeter wasn't missed  Nunez was the straw that stirred the Yankee drink, Even if the that drink consisted of only  a few drops at the bottom of a virtually empty glass.

     

      Anyway, in regards to the Yankees-  Ding Dong the Witch is dead.  The wicked witch is dead.

    Maybe it's just me, but the .200 is based a sample size of 1?  Especially when he hit .364 in the ALDS.  I don't mind busting NYY chops, but not over a guy that broke his ankle.

    Sounds trollish to me; at the age of 38; he had a league leading 216 hits, an unprecedented achievement for a SS, and possibly anybody (Including 15 HRs). He botched the ground ball on the play he broke his ankle. The NYY did not win another game after he was gone. So much for this thread.

    Jeter had a great year.  The Yankees would have been a better team with both Jeter and Nunez in the lineup.

    Jeter could have still played. It's not like a broken ankle would have reduced his range. ;-)

    Let's not get crazy. Nunez on his best day will never be better than Jeter at 38.

    Nunez is a decent player, but in NO WAY could he even dream of coming close to the player jeter is/was...

    Nunez with the leather - not so good. I think the Yanks are hoping this will improve so they can keep him in the game as an infielder, but I think his future is in the OF. Nunez may very well be Granderson's one way ticket to Free Agency unless Grandy can raise that average by 40 points and reduce his K's by at least 25%.

    Nunez is a rising star.  But Derek Jeter is a legend and a baseball icon.

    But that isn't really the question the Yankees have.  The question is, can Nunez be a better player than Jeter will be from now on?

    Jeter is and always has been the heart and "class act" of the Yankees.  To say anything bad about this guy is just wrong.
