Where's all the folks that hate on Jeter?

Postby Baseballer02 » Sun Jun 27, 2004 11:39 pm

Where's all the folks that say Jeter doesn't produce? Where's all the folks that say he shouldn't be an All-Star? Seems like he's probably one of the best shortstops in the AL right now, though I'm not looking at everyone's stats, but with that being said, it looks like he's well on his way to 100R-20HR-20SB-80RBI-.300AVG, which I'll take from a middle infielder any day.

try

10 0R
28 HR
100 RBI
15 SB
300 avg

he has 9HR in June, most of his career for any 1 month, Jeter is on fire and he is a 2nd half player anyways. He might hit 30HR, his career high is 24 and he is going to easily break that.

His lost season has tuend into a CAREER YEAR

Damn right, where all those Jeter-haters now? Overrated? Yeah right. His homeruns this year make him as valueable as people had Nomar and Tejada at the beginning of this year. Jeter is a deserving All-Star and his play over the last 1-2 months puts up a strong case that he deservedly is starting the game.

I'm still here..........still hatin on Jeter.

As good as he's been over the past 20 games his BA is still horrible.....only his HR are above expectations....SB's, BA, and runs are far below what people expected..........talk to me in a month. Don't tell me that a few weeks of good baseball erases 2 horrible months.

His batting average is not horrible when put in perspective to where he was just a short time ago (under .200 I believe.) He's on fire right now. If somebody can't see that then they are blind. Nobody says it erases the two bad months he had, but it sure as hell eases the pain, both for the Yankees and fantasy teams everywhere. He's not just playing mediocre, he's kicking @$$ and is doing his best to make up for the poor start.

Yes it erases the pain temporarily, but he's still having a horrible year. A good few weeks, but a bad year. I'm not blind, it's just that 3 great weeks won't make me forget the first 7 horrible ones. For most players a hot streak is considered an anomoly, but apparently for Jeter it means he'll destroy his career high in HR and play like A-Rod for the rest of the year......I'm not buying it. But you guys can keep telling yourselves this is the real Jeter...............

I agree Lb, that the homerun total can't continue. But you gotta admit, Jeter's track record shows that he hots for a high average which in this yankee lineup means runs and rbi's galore. And what if you traded for Jeter at his lowest and have only acquired his stats in June like I did in one of my weaker leagues? Not such a disappointment now is he?

Oh of course his June stats are great......but for the season, despite how good he's been, he'll have to play like this for another month to even out his stats. And I don't see that happening, let alone playing like this or even close to it for another 3 and a half months.

These Jeter fans are saying "I told you so" when really there isn't grounds to do so. That's why I said talk to me in a month.

I am one of those folks who bought low on Jeter this year. Well you know how that's turned out. Can't complain. ;-D

Where are all the Renteria people? :-)
