You can’t blame Jeter

I see in the comments that some people are giving Derek Jeter a hard time about today’s game.

Really? Did you watch the game?

He was 3 for 4 when he came to the plate in the ninth and hit a bullet up the middle that glanced off the mound right to Asdrubal Cabrera. The Cleveland second baseman was breaking to the middle and the ball landed in his glove.

Most hitters try to hit the ball as hard as they can up the middle. Jeter did just that and he caught a bad break. You can’t fault him for that. If hitters could place every ball where they wanted, everybody would hit 1.000.


Meanwhile, while I appeciate the fact that we had 1,300+ comments on the blog yesterday (on a weekend, no less), please do not violate our TOS when you comment.

Thanks to the people who have been e-mailing me to point out comments that need deleting. It’s appreciated.
