Just to get this thread slightly back on topic, the near-daily Bill Simmons columns are probably the highlight of my summer. And they're all FUNNY, which is the best part; the guy must have a bunch of pent-up material from Kimmel.
Originally posted by JakegnosisBubbles, everybody knows Jeter's a better defensive SS than Nomar. If you're going to put up the defensive stats you should put the offense in there, too. Nomar owns Jeter in every offensive category.
Actually, no; he isn't. As much as defense has been studied (and compared to offense, it barely has) "everyone" knows that Nomar is the better defensive SS.
Rather than look at this year, bubbles, why not pull up some stats from years where Nomar hasn't been half-crippled?
Washington probably gets some kind of draft pick or picks for this, but they really should have just flipped the guy last year when the market was really full of impact power hitters still in their prime. The White Sox always seem to build weird teams....
