In response to pinstripezac35's comment:
not even decent defense ?
tell me stat geeks
how many more PO wins would andy have if he didn't have such a bad SS
to me when I hear you all talkin about his D
it sounds to me like you are saying
to win SS defense doesn't matter
and then I wonder even more why them people keep talking about it
Not even decent Zac.
How much SS defense matters depends on how good the rest of your team is. Jeter was able to offset his defensive deficiencies with his great offense and leadership. The Yankees were good enough in other areas to compensate for Jeter's poor defense.
Why do we keep talking about it? One never misses a chance to tweak the Yankees. ;-)
On a different note,
Can you believe that some people are calling the 2013 Red Sox lucky?
Nobody should ever call the 2013 Red Sox lucky; they were just the best; by far, and with an unmatched fireceness. Refer to my recent thread below as to the reasons why, at least IMO.
Here's a perfect example of the difference between the NYY & Bos in 2013; the NYY signed Youkilis; for similar money, the RS signed Victorino, and he played hurt with multiple injuries; he seemed to be grimacing all the time.
