    Who is going to play SS for the Yankees today?

    Wilson Betimit
    Morgan Ensberg
    ARod
    Minor leaguer

    Jeter is out and I certainly don't think Betimit can get it done at SS anymore. Ensberg has played short but he isn't any better than Betimit... Do they bring up a minor leaguer or move ARod over there? Jeter is not going on the DL so it may be hard to make a roster move.

    Lineups already announced. As expected, it's Betemit.

    Wilson Betimit will I assume. Morgan Ensberg can in for him yesterday but played first and Betimit went to SS.

    I guess they don't want to upset princess Jeter.

    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Is the game going on? Im about 10 miles from the stadium right now and its been raining most of the day. It has let up of late.

    I was hoping it'd be rained out, I have tickets for tomorrow night and would love to see opening day at a nice discount.

    Some guy did a pretty advanced statistical thing and found that Jeter was the second worst defensive player in baseball behind only ManRam.

    Not nearly as dubious is John Dewan’s book, “The Fielding Bible”, in which Dewan culls data from every play and rates players on a plus-minus scale – plus for making a play that at least one of his peers had missed, and minus for the opposite. It is the new standard for fielding statistics, and in the past three years, Jeter is minus-90, the second-worst number in all of baseball, better only than Manny Ramirez’s minus-109.
