I will just repeat that outside of one really bad week (that seems to have ended with the posting of this thread) Jeter has been OK this season, as was noted all the way back in #4. Now perhaps that bad week is going to be indicative of something, but small sample size suggests some caution in making that assessment. Not sure why the fan-boy haters ignore that, but they have done it before. Jeter is still the Yankees best option at SS.
Who would you rather have play SS for you right now, Clapper? Jeter or Bogaerts?
And been hilariously wrong virtually every time.
NOT. DEAD. YET
Now I have no doubt at all.
The incredibly antagonistic posting style is also a give away.

He may be done and not that I like splitting data up this way but you're dealing with a small sample of 100 PA to begin with and he was hitting 292/378/333 a week ago before going 2-24, so I don't see why you wouldn't wait to see if he can push the average back up to .270. If he can do that with some walks then you can live with it. It's not like you have a great replacement and he's gone in 5 months anyway.
His power seems to have left him.
One morning, Derek Jeter awoke to discover that he had transformed into a giant cockroach. The clutchest cockroach ever. He rolled out of bed, ignoring the screams from the nubile Maxim covergirl lying next to him, and quickly donned his uniform as best he could in his current condition. Today was opening day and he had to go to Yankee Stadium to play against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
A quiet murmur circulated through the stands as the Yankee fans contemplated Derek fielding practice grounders before the game. The only indication that this was, in fact, the Yankee captain that they had grown to know and idolize was the familiar "2" on the back of his jersey. In the press box, Michael Kay looked down at the giant cockroach and felt a certain kinship that he couldn't quite explain.
The game began. The Yankee fans began their usual roll call of the players, but instead of "De-rek Jet-er" they chanted "Gi-ant ####-roach." Obviously, they had decided to go with it. Derek discreetly tipped his hat, revealing two long antenna that bounced around slightly in the cool April breeze that blew through Yankee Stadium.
The leadoff hitter for the Devil Rays, a short, unhappy man who secretly desired to be a concert pianist, grounded a ball sharply up the middle. In the past, this had been Derek's only weakness, the groundball that required him to range to his left and dive. Now, however, as a giant cockroach, diving was no longer necessary. Derek deftly scuttled to his left, cleanly picked off the ball with his glove, and fired a strike to first, beating the runner by half a step. As the crowd roared its approval, Derek fist-pumped three of his legs. It was going to be a good season.
Since the average ############ on BTF never clicks on links, I'll spare them the trouble.
Sometimes it's not simply that we won't click on licks. For example, I started reading what you posted, and then stopped reading after the first sentence, which was "One morning, Derek Jeter awoke to discover that he had transformed into a giant cockroach."
I don't plan on reading the rest.
"Archy & Mehitabel" I remember an example of from a reader in high school.
