The numbers for Jeter are bad, you can't argue numbers. However, have you seen Jeter play? Do you ever see him botch plays he should make? Hardly ever. Do you ever see him sail a ball over the head of the 1B or into the dugout? Hardly ever. Do you ever see him go to his right, out to the outfield grass, backhand a grounder, jump, spin, and fire a strike to beat the runner at 1st? All the time.
Well, i hope NY keeps DJ at ss. Those extra balls that get through will lead to extra runs, and maybe extra losses. Not much you say, true. But sometimes it only takes one game.
TWENTYSIX you say the numbers are bad, and you can't argue them. Then you totally disregard everything you stated, with the eyes argument.
