In a new column on Baseball Prospectus I ask the question on every one's mind, "What Would Bacon Do?" (WWBD?).

No, not Kevin Bacon but Sir Francis Bacon the English philosopher and statesman. The question of course is what would Bacon think of Derek Jeter's defensive ability and the recent hub-ub surrounding it. Using Bacon's new-fangled inductive method of reasoning and his "idols" construct for categorizing the frailties of human reasoning, we come to a conclusion regarding The Captain. Enjoy.
