Can Anyone Stop Him?
When you talk about the New York Yankees this year, you think about Alex Rodriguez, and Roger Clemens. But a player whose been left out of the spotlight this year, is shortstop Derek Jeter.
Possibly the most clutch shortstop in MLB history has gotten off to one of the best starts in his career. He is leading the American League in batting average with .375%, is leading the American League in hits with 54 and is 2nd in the AL in on base average with .448%.
Unfortunately for Jeter, his amazing start has been overshadowed by Alex Rodriguez's record tying start and Roger Clemens comeback to the Yankees.
Now to put these stats into perspective, no other player in the MLB has 2 home runs, but 20 RBI. That's how good he is.
A-Rod has been on a bit of a slump lately since his April surge, so I think it is time for the New York fans to take a look at Jeter again, and look at the amzing stats he has put up not only this year, but throughout his entire career.
