I'd like to first start by saying that Bill James is a hack. There, that felt good. Mr. James you can't be serious when you say Derek Sanderson Jeter is the worst infielder in baseball. No love for the "Jeter Jump" or "The Flip?" I'm not here to say Jeter is Honus Wagner, but Mr. James your blind alligence much like that of George Mitchell to the Boston Red Sox for whom you are of current employ is ignorant and stupid.
As someone opined on another blog, has Jason Giambi retired or is his fielding so bad that he is not even considered an infielder? How about looking at your own clubhouse with Jason Varitek and an arm only Johnny Damon could love? Or you and Mr. Mitchell get together and see if David Ortiz isn't indeed the worst infielder or roided out? Oh that's right, I guess one must actually be in ownership of a glove and hat in order to be considered an infielder.
Look Boston I'm sorry if your cognitive dissonance has been thrown out of wack by virtue of winning two recent championships, but get over it. You beat the Yankees, you have a $130 million payroll with more All-Stars than one can shake a stick at, so stop your whining and relax.
