Worst Shortstop in the Game?
According to this article in the NY Post a study done by "Scientists" at UPenn (safety school) shows that Derek Jeter is the worst shortstop currently playing. Never mind that his colleagues in baseball routinely award him gold gloves, the numbers don't lie. Apparently the scientists, having cured aids, cancer, and found a way to reverse global warming, measured where every ball was hit from 2002 to 2005. They then forwent any romantic contact for months. Finally, they put the numbers through Mitchell's Magic Number Crunching Machine and discovered that Jeter is the worst shortstop alive. Even worse than that fat kid everyone always picks last in gym class. Truth hurts Yankee fans, I know. But they measured every ball put into play. Every ball. Put into play. You can't argue with that sort of methodology.
