Picture it, bottom of the 4th, one out. Tatis hits the most routine ground ball to SS in the history of ground balls to SS. The SS boots it. It is scored a hit McCarver is shocked. Buck is shocked. But they shouldn't have been, given the name of the SS. Next time someone questions the value of zone rating/range factor vs. Fielding %, point to this play!
I think most folks have gotten the clue on Jeter's defense and the deference he is given by now -- and Tatis' hit was erased on an inning-ending double play one batter later so it didn't really matter -- but I wanted to give Kenny the chance to vent on this. For one thing because he's right, but more importantly so that he doesn't take his still-simmering rage over this two day-old incident out on a water cooler or up in a bell tower somewhere.
Deep breaths, Kenny. Deep breaths.
