Random Baseball Analysis



This was making the rounds this morning. I may need my Baseball Nemesis to clarify a couple of things.

Is this really a great play by Jeter? Doesn't the shortstop always move to second when the runner at first takes off? Isn't that what the runner expects? And wasn't that guy sprinting to second on this hit-and-run regardless of what Jeter did? I think he would have been thrown out any way even if Jeter didn't do the fake catch.
