Jeter Resurgent

New, comments

Dave Allen of FanGraphs broke down Jeter's 2009 hits in an interesting way:

Since Jeter's basically a groundball singles hitter, keeping the ball away from the SS and 2B is the difference between a good and great season. He hit 36% of his batted balls at those positions over his career, but that number dropped to only 30% in 2009.

It's as sure a bet for regression to the mean as anything I've seen, and a great insight by Dave.

So my question for you: What do you expect from Derek Jeter in 2010?
