Thursday 8/6 vs Red Sox - 1 for 5 with one RBI and no errors. Middle part of one double play.
Friday 8/7 vs Red Sox - 1 for 7 with one run scored and no errors. Middle part of two double plays.
Saturday 8/8 vs Red Sox - 1 for 5 with 1 run scored and 2 RBI's and no errors. Middle part of one double play. Intangible and instinct, taken out on DP but calmly steps over slider and makes DP look easy. No attempt to do anything dirty. All class.
Jeter's average has dropped but when big games are up, the intangibles are what count. There was some good pithcing for at least half of the last 3 game set on both sides. I will continue to track and see that now, when the games count, what Mr. Jeter does for the Yankees and head down the road of does he suck or doesn't he.
