The Captain

What everyone knew already but that is now gaining a little mainstream press.

Derek Jeter is not a good defensive shortstop.

The above revelation is a part of the presentation that Shane Jensen and colleagues gave in discussing his Spatial Aggregate Fielding Evaluation system or SAFE at a recent AAAS meeting in Boston.

Of course, as is typical, the popular press (the Popular Science article) gets the details wrong and attributes Defensive Efficiency Ratio (DER) to David Pinto instead of his system called Probabilstic Model of Range (PMR).
