2009 Stats: .334/18/66/30
Did anyone stave off the effects of aging bettter than Jeter last season? After a dissapointing 2008 campaign, where he hit a measly .300, Jeter came back in 2009 ready to tear up the league. His inside out swing combined with a wind tunnel that leads balls to right field helped bring his power numbers up, but the most impressive thing to me was his 30 stolen bases. Jeter thrived at the leadoff position, and this year is a contract year for him. That should play heavily in how he performs.
Jeter wins an MVP. You heard it here first.
Little Known Jeter Fact:
In his last contract negotiation, Derek Jeter drafted, revised, signed and submitted his own contract, which the Yankees accepted without even looking at it. He's that gangster.
