I guess that you would have caught that. ;-7 That was a tough play and it didn't seem to matter much. :-)

I'm not making $18M a season to play SS; Jeter is. But to answer your question anyway, I might have caught that. I'm a pretty good infielder ;-)

No matter how you look at it, it was a tough play. He stung the ball and it was an in between hop. They originally ruled it a hit and it should have stayed that way. ;-)

Yeah it was hit hard... but it was right at him and hit his glove. That's an error, even though it was a tough play to make. They're not all going to be slow rollers with Bengie Molina running to first. Just cuz it's a tough play doesn't make it not an error.

True but it also doesn't mean that it's an error, either. I can understand both sides but I thought that it was a hit.

And neither of us is biased ;-7

Lets call it half a hit, half an error. Still lowers his ZR though, since it was obviously in his zone :-D

Well, his playoff ZR. Since he's supposed to be a clutch player you'd think he'd take his game to a new level (presumably one higher than the regular season) for the playoffs :-D

And yeha I know he's good, I'm just screwin around. The Jays are long gone, what the hell else am I gonna do.
