Rival Review: Short Stop

Derek Jeter vs. ?

I'm not going to lie, I don't even know who the Boston Red Sox's short stop is, so I'm going to google that right now . . .

I'm back. That took for #$@&*$ ever! There's only one short stop listed on the Red Sox active roster at their official site, but he, it turns out, is not their starting short stop. It turns out Mike Aviles, listed as a third baseman, and Nick Punto, listed as a second baseman, are competing for the job. So right now, as far as I know, the Red Sox don't have a starting short stop. What they do have is a series of back-up type players competing for the starting job.

The Yankees have Derek Jeter.

Gosh, let me think, who takes this one? Hmm. It's close, but I'm going to have to go with Jeter over "#@$& it, this season's lost anyways."

But does Jeter have the grittiness of a Nick Punto? Does anyone?

Nick Punto is gritty. That is true. But it's like the grittiness you get after going to the beach. The kind that you just can't seem to get out of your clothes.

And that disturbing image is why Jeter trumps Punto.

Jeter trumps Punto because Jeter is Jeter.
