    Via an e-mail from Lee Sinins this morning…

    Derek Jeter is now in third place, all-time, in Yankees history for most hits versus the league average. Here’s the up-to-date top ten:

    Rk	Player		DIFF	PLYR	LGE
    1	Babe Ruth		612	2518	1906
    2	Lou Gehrig	575	2721	2146
    3	Derek Jeter	477	2507	2030
    4	Joe DiMaggio	476	2214	1738
    5	Mickey Mantle	472	2415	1943
    6	Don Mattingly	430	2153	1723
    7	Earle Combs	304	1866	1562
    8	Bernie Williams	281	2336	2055
    9	Bill Dickey	269	1969	1700
    10	Yogi Berra	233	2148	1915
    

    For the record, since June 1st and through yesterday, here are Jeter’s batting stats:

    G	PA	R	2B	HR	RBI	BB
    76	348	44	17	6	35	28
    						
    SO	GDP	SB	CS	BA	OBP	SLG
    48	14	5	3	.315	.375	.428
    

    That’s pretty much what you would expect from Derek. So, perhaps, there’s still some life left in Jeter’s bat?

      IIRC, the last post about Jeter having an awful season, I made a comment on how Jeter would start to hit and everyone would stop complaining about him. Sounds like I was right

      Corey-I remember that cause I was right there with you, so I got your back on that one…he has hit but I think people are still complaining.

      It’s nice to see Jeter doing his job. Curious to know what an .803 OPS translates to in OPS+ since June 1.

      If I had to guess, I would offer that the AL OPS since June 1st is around .775 – based on the numbers that I can find.

      Not bad for such an overrated and declining player. If not for Daniel Cabrera, his numbers would be even better.
