According to a group that tracks pretty much every single ball hit in the major leagues, Derek Jeter is the worst fielder in the league. Not just the worst shortstop but the worst fielder.
NY Post – A group that tracks every ball hit in the majors says Derek Jeter is the worst fielder in baseball.
Stats guru Bill James, author of the “Baseball Abstract,” and a panel of nine other voters, ranked Jeter 22nd among all major-league shortstops, with one calling Jeter “the least effective defensive player in the major leagues, at any position.”
Jeter received one 10th-place vote in balloting for the 2008 Fielding Bible Awards, announced yesterday. One panel member comes from Baseball Info Solutions (BIS), a group that … well, just say they do their research.
Oh wait, so I guess the fact that DJ has 10 gold gloves and has banged down some of the hottest celebs known to man has nothing to do with the fact that these guys are hating. Something tells me that this group must consist of a lot Red Sox fans.
