Thread: Jeter Myth

  1. #1
    Just thought it worth noting....


    .317 .291 .314

    What are those? From left to right Jeters lifetime BA, for the regular season, World Series, and postseason (this postseason excluded).

    Hmm, thought he was clutch?

    .463 .427 .469

    Thats his slugging percentages. Postseason is at least higher than the regular season, but only by .006.

    Ok, so obviously he gets the big hits with runners on, right?

    322 postseason ABs. 59 runs, 11 HRs, 28 RBIs

    Double those ABs and you get the same # he had in 2002 over 157 games. So it's fair to say that Jeter, lifetime in the postseason, has performed like a .314 hitter with a .468 slugging %, who scores 118 runs, hits 22 HRs, and drives in 56 runs OVER THE COURSE OF A FULL SEASON.

    It is a myth that Jeter steps up in October. He has had some REALLY good series..... but he has also had some really poor ones. Anecdotal evidence can be misleading.

    I hate coming to Jeter&#39;s defense, but after seeing Nomar and Manny bat .265 in the playoffs, there is some truth to him being clutch in October. You were right Carver and his ass clown Buck pratically blew him everytime he made a routine play, but more often then not and unlike our top two players he was clutch in most situations. If Manny and Nomar even hit close to their averages, especially with runners in scoring position are the Sox not in the WS?

    This must have been hard for you to post.

    Even a Yankee homer knows their lack of performance kept the Sox at home as much as Grady&#39;s.
