NY Post: Jeter wins 2nd straight Gold Glove

Postby WharfRat » Tue Nov 01, 2005 11:09 am

November 1, 2005 -- After being shut out for the first eight years of his career, Derek Jeter has won his second straight Gold Glove, The Post has learned.
According to multiple industry sources, the announcement that Jeter is the AL Gold Glove winner will be made today.

Jeter, whose .979 fielding percentage was second to the Angels' Orlando Cabrera's .988 among AL shortstops, was voted the winner by AL coaches. Jeter's fielding percentage was ninth among major league shortstops.


Jeter's 2005 rankings among AL Shortstops (10 players qualified): 2nd in RF, 5th in ZR. He also had 6 defensive Win Shares, good for 6th among AL shortstops. In other words, he had a pretty good year defensively, though not great. I may have gone with Uribe.

Haha, yes it will. Nothing like watching a Jeter-hater throwing a temper tantrum. :-D

I don't see why he was 2nd in FLD% and RF for SS in AL. 5th in ZR too.

I just wonder why Jeter's fielding numbers have improved so much since A-Rod starting playing 3rd? :-? :-D

For one thing, he'd been healthy the last two years. In 2003, he was severely bothered by his shoulder I have to think.

Perhaps Alex gave him some advice or he simply started to position himself better before contact. He moves well, no question, but I've heard his positioning was a problem in the past.

Alex can also play further off the line than most 3B, so that does cut down on what he needs to cover I guess.

But congrats to Derek ;-D ;-D
