If there’s a formula for turning obvious errors into hits…Derek Jeter has discovered it.
Jeter then cut to the chase, explaining something that is lost a bit in today’s game.
“I’ve always tried to do everything on the field to help the team try to win,’’ Jeter told The Post. “In all different ways, offensively, defensively, moving runners up to score a run. That’s how you win games. You can take all these formulas and stuff and throw it out the window.’’
Jeter moved the runners up on a sacrifice bunt in the sixth. Two batters later, Carlos Beltran drilled a grand slam.
When I mentioned to Jeter the winning approach is getting lost in today’s game, he did not hesitate.
“It’s been lost,’’ he said, “since they started coming up with all these formulas.’’
Jeter is not going to be the guest speaker at the next meeting of analytical experts. The iPad game is not his game. He knows what it takes to win. At the age of 40, he produces.
