Miraculously, Derek Jeter reaches base

A .260 hitter without a clutch hit since August 2006 will do just about anything to get on base, especially late when his team is losing and about to drop out of first in the division. But Derek Jeter? Oh wait, Jeter is a .260 hitter these days. Oh well, at least he has fantastic range for a shortstop.

Jeter’s numbers since the start of June, by the way: .238 with five homers, 30 RBIs and on-base and slugging percentages of .320 and .333. Oh yeah, and he’s a free agent after the season. How does a two-year, $4 million deal with Kansas City sound?



  1. hahaha, is that Kansas City deal for real??? or is that a joke.

  2. Derek Jeter with Minka-like play there. Oh well, yankee haters can embrace the fact that they still lost the game last night.

  3. tim: It’s the type of contract he’s earned, but don’t count on it. I’m sure the Yankees will bring him back based on his legacy alone, especially since he’s in line for his 3,000th hit in 2011. It’ll be interesting to see how much they’re willing to pay up and for how long…it may get to be a bit of a sensitive issue, too.

  4. Yah, I thought it was a joke, so well done. I thought it was hilarious at start, then i assesed the situations and thought, “hey, maybe he is going to sign on with the Royals”.

    Haha, funny.

  5. “Oh well, at least he has fantastic range for a shortstop.”

    That’s a joke, right? ‘Cause you had me smirking.

  6. Yeah, definitely a joke. His bat may be worth $4 million over two years, but his range isn’t worth four cents.

  7. […] seems I’m not the only one weighing in on Derek Jeter and his Academy Award nomination the other night. Much of the talk around the league the last couple days has been Jeter’s […]

  8. hi again
