"Same .270 Average, Varied Weight" by Ben Shpigel - NYTimes.com
The Times weighs in on the Yankees on their season's eve. Oddly enough, Jeter and Rodriguez were two of only five MLB players who batted exactly .270 last year. Obviously people are tweaking out about Jeter's drop in batting average, but no one's made a mention of Rodriguez at the same number.
I don't know, I guess it can be rationalized by A-Rod's power numbers. I'm just still trying to figure out if I'm impressed that he's 6'3" 222 at 9% body fat. I expect more.
