Notable FanHouse Commenting: Jeter is a Shortstop GOD!!
Thursday, April 10, 2008
In addition to my usual Yankees Chick posts, I have also begun writing regularly for AOL's FanHouse blog on all things AL East. I will post the beginnings of those articles here on YC, and then you'll have to click the link to jump on over to FH to read the rest... stick with me here, amigos!
--------------------------------------------------------

In the wake of Derek Jeter's quad injury and subsequent necessary bench time, there has been plenty of discussion about who should replace him while he's out. Since Wilson Betemit and Morgan Ensberg are both capable of playing third base there was some speculation of whether Alex Rodriguez might see some playing time in his old SS post, which brought up the question/debate over whether Jeet of MVP-Rod is the better shortstop. In the posty I wrote about the situation I contended that A-Rod is the better of the two by a miles, a view commenter Ben did not agree with:
A Rod is an excellent fielder but he is not now nor was he ever as good a shortstop as Jeter. To suggest that he is only means that you have not been watching them play.
I disagree.

Do you? Read more after the jump!

    I went to the game tonight, and risking sounding like a heretic, the Attorney General looked good at the plate, amazing in the field. He made some plays that I'm not sure Jeter makes. He looked a little anxious at the plate, but still ripped out a solid single, laid down a perfect sacrifice and picked a rocket on one hop and made the laser throw to Ensberg.

    I think he'll hold his own for the next week or so.

    So he may not have the range some others do, so what. How many teams have someone out there hitting .200 because they can play stellar defense? Whats any different in this case? The guy is the team Captain, can play the position well enough, plus lets not forget that his lack of range doesn't affect his hustle, there are a plethora of highlight reels to back that up. While he may not nab every grounder that comes his way, I would start him 162 times a year if it were my call. Plus, being in the top 10 for double plays turned suggests that he isn't quite the French army out there, he can stop something.

    Whoa, whoa. By no means am I advocating replacing Jeter with AG. He just looked good in person last night and I think he'll be okay for a "week"

    As soon as Jeter's completely healthy, he goes back in again and doesn't ever sit. But I think Betemit should be the fall man instead of Gonzalez. AG gives the team more flexibility.
