I Take That Back

Last week I congratulated broadcaster Tim McCarver on his intuition when he noted on a broadcast that Derek Jeter never gets thrown out on the bases. In that post I noted that in 248 opportunities from 2000 through 2004 Jeter was thrown out only twice (once each in 2003 and 2004).

However, I now have 2005 PBP data and come to discover that in 2005 Jeter was thrown out three times in 69 opportunities and so now has been nabbed five times in 317 chances over the last six years. The leader in getting thrown out was Brewer's rookie Richie Weeks who was cut down 5 times in 2005.
