During tonight’s Yankees-Blue Jays broadcast, color commentator John Flaherty:
“Jeter here shows you can run on [Jays’ catcher] Jason Phillips. Phillips is known more for his bat than for his glove.”
Jason Phillips has a career 83 OPS+ and a .245 EqA. For the more traditional folk, his career batting average is .254 and his OBP is .319. I suppose Flaherty can technically be correct; if Phillips is an F- at fielding, he can be a D- at hitting and still be “known more for his bat than for his glove”. But that’s not what he meant.
