Nice to have a laugher...Thames is on fire..I am worried about Jeter, he can't have gotten so bad in just a year something has to be wrong injury wise...
Why not? He's 37 now. Just look at Jeter's #1 comparable - Barry Larkin.
Barry Larkin's 35 year old season: .293/.390/.420 (103 OPS+)
36 year old season: .313/.389/.487 (118 OPS+)
37 year old season: .256/.373/.372 (90)
38 year old season: .245/.305/.367 (74)
Jeter's 34/35 year old season: .300/.363/.408 (102)
35/36 year old season: .334/.406/.465 (132)
36/37 year old season: .268/.333/.378 (96)
Before steroids this was about the age that players careers start to end. Saying that, I wouldn't be surprised if Jeter's a bit banged up - but that is probably also the norm for a player as he gets older as you are more susceptible to getting banged up as you get older. Also, I could see Jeter having been somewhat unlucky with the balls he's putting in play this year, while he was a bit lucky last year. (This year he's hitting .300 with BABIP with a career .356 mark).
Good AJ better show up tonight. If he gets bombed by this weak hitting A's lineup then he's absolutely useless.
Also Albaladejo P, Chad Moeller C and Greg Golson OF have been called up. Sorry Jesus. You'll be on the team next year.
Oh and ladies and gentlemen......Fat Elvis is in the building.
We Play Today, We Win Today.......Das It!!!!!!!
