        I can see this thing ending up a dispute between Yanks/Sox fans. It's unarguable that Jeter was not the best fielding shortstop in the AL this year . He didn't deserve it on the field but other factors led him to get the award. Make of that what you will.

          I hope you didn't draw that conclusion from what I said. I think the wink pretty much indicates I'm just playing around.

            The Sox fan can't dispute because their SS had 30 Errors compared to Jeters 15.

            I'm not sure but did Rentaria lead the Majors in errors?

I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio

              I decided to stir this thread to the top of the pot rather than the previous five-page-long controversy (last reply in July '05).

              The story below presents the Great Jeter Fielding Debate again, with a chart on how he stacks up using assorted different metrics, including some new systems. I think it's pretty fair and balanced overall.

              Key quote:

              He rates from slightly above average to well below average, and the newer systems don't tend to like him as much as the older ones (see chart, above.) In fact, some disenchantment or even disgust with newer fielding rating systems seems to arise from the fact that they have come across as a witch hunt against this very popular and respected player.

                That's kind of silly. What does Renteria have to do with Jeter?

                And what does his play or his being on the Red Sox have to do with our ability to recognize who should or should have not won the award? :noidea

                  I do think there is a witch-hunt by many sabermetricians to create as many statistics as possible that show how bad Jeter is defensively. It's like an obsession really - the lengths people will go to bring Jeter down.

                    All they need to do is watch the game. For the captain of the New York Yankees, is that so difficult to do?

                      I agree.

                      Just looking at the basic numbers among qualified AL shortstops in 2005, Jeter ranks 2nd out of 10 in Putouts, 2nd in Assists, 2nd in Errors (meaning 2nd fewest), 2nd in FP, 2nd in RF, and 5th in ZR.

                      How bad could he have possibly been?

                      I also call into question the accuracy of that article that VIBaseball linked to. It states that UZR had Jeter at -16 in 2005, whereas Mitchel Lichtman did an interview with Replacement Level Yankees Weblog the other day and claimed Jeter was a -8:

                      So which one is it?

                        I never really thought he was a bad defender from watching him, I just dislike him because he overshadows so many other players due to the amount of media coverage he receives.

                          I guess such is inevitable when: A) You play in the biggest market in the nation; B) You play on a team that won 6 pennants and 4 championships; C) You play on the nation's most reknown and historically successful team; D) You're photogenic, personable, and always say the right things to the media; E) You're a pretty good player too.

                              DoubleX, you can just come right out and say it. I'm jealous and I wish he played for the Cubs.
