Very Classy

Jeetshot

I think we can take away something better than a Duncan faux pas from this amazing series!

  • So I didn’t get to watch the whole game last night. Instead, I started around the 6th inning, and Schilling was looking efficient and good as ever.
    This at bat was the highlight of the season for me. It had it all. Jeter smirkingly repeatedly. Varitek and Schilling conferencing every 2 seconds (seriously, this seemed to be a case of over-thinking on their part) and that beautiful shot. When he hit it, my brother and I did the Jeter fist pump and smiled from ear-to-ear.
    Fantastic. His legend only grows.

  • smirkingly. I like that word!

  • F*** that dude.
    No offense.

  • I was more impressed by his ability to turn a routine soft liner into a “Gold Glove” worthy grab, myself.

  • The guy is batting just a little under .500 with 2 outs and men in scoring position and it’s not because of a small sample size. I still find that hard to believe.

  • Derek Jeter – Red Sox killer.
    He also kills the Mets. 6 of his 10 homeruns have come against the Red Sox, and two have come against the Mets. Could this guy be any truer of a Yankee?

  • He does wear the Yankee uniform, unlike not-so-true Yankees like A-Rod, so that’s definitely a good start.

  • “He does wear the Yankee uniform, unlike not-so-true Yankees like A-Rod”
    Is Arod going around in his skivvies again?
    Seriously, Paul, stop trolling here…

  • Does A-Rod not wear the Yankee uniform?
    Seriously, if A-Rod goes elsewhere this season, MLB should just make him up his own “Team A-Rod” uniform.

  • IH’s mention about 2-outs, RISP made me curious, so off to B-R to get his splits.

  • Thanks AG. I remain in awe.
    Out of curiousty, what are Ortiz’s? (I realize you might not have time to run stats all day – I just don’t know how to run situational stats, like with RISP and 2 outs)
    I am sure they are also scary.

    IronHorse (yf) September 17, 2007, 1:07 pm
  • IH: You’re right, his numbers are indeed scary. To get them, it’s easy.
    1. Go to baseball-reference.com
    2. Search for the player you want.
    3. From the batting line header, choose splits > whatever year or career.
    4. Cut out numbers that make your argument look bad and only post the ones that make your case.
    5. Turn off your web browser before b-r sucks all the productivity out of your day.
    Ortiz’s splits:

    Split   G   AB H  2B 3B HR RBI GDP  BA  OBP   SLG

  • Oops.. I pulled a Duncan — should have said, “before b-r draws all productivity down a swirling vortex with the force of an F15-powered shop-vac.”

    attackgerbil September 17, 2007, 1:19 pm
  • nice, ag.

    Yankee Fan In Boston September 17, 2007, 1:27 pm
  • Thanks AG – both on how to use B-R and on how to avoid using it…
    I see jeter has better BA, OBP, and (surprisingly) SLG than Ortiz in these situations. Smiles.

  • “Cut out numbers that make your argument look bad and only post the ones that make your case.”
    Hilarious!

    Andrews September 17, 2007, 1:51 pm
  • Seriously, I just can’t stand the “true Yankee” crap. Yankees are Yankees. Jeter is a highly productive, highly clutch one who is rightly more revered than others, but he’s not any truer a Yankee than any other Yankee.

    Paul SF September 17, 2007, 2:04 pm
  • “Seriously, I just can’t stand the “true Yankee” crap”
    Of course you can’t stand it – you’re a red sox fan!

    Andrews September 17, 2007, 3:28 pm
  • Paul – I was being slightly facetious.

  • rz-yf, that’s really funny.
