I think JE's link means to go here. And yes, it is pretty great.
My Derek Jeter scouting report:
poz really needs some new material. there are other players in baseball besides jeter and pujols
i get concerned when such a good writer is trotting out the same old subjects. that's for the rick reillys of the world. not a joe p
Moving to North Carolina and writing for a national audience dried up a lot of Posnanski's material.
AND A $%#@ PONY...!!!
My Jeter scouting report:
1) He's a sex machine to all the chicks.
2) He would risk his neck for his brother man.
3) He's the cat that won't cop out when there's danger all about.
Why did Poz move to North Carolina? Was it to be closer to Dave Cameron?
for my money right now the best writer on baseball is jonah keri and it's not close.
I was surprised to learn recently that Jeter was basically done as an effective player after age 35. Just 5 WAR after age 35. If you don't accept his b-r defense then it's 10 oWAR but even if his "true" value was something like 7 or 8 WAR, in 511 games (2367 PA) that's not really helping that much.
What I would note is that the graphic has the unintended effect of mocking Jeter while trying to praise him. Because everyone knows his power is gone and that he's not somebody who is going to hurt you on a consistent basis anymore. So pointing to these BS intangibles qualities in a scouting report (???) is basically an acknowledgment that he now sucks so you're going to have to make sh!t up. I mean, what would a real scouting report say? That he is bad hitter now and his power is gone and his best bet for a hit is short right field?
