After going 0-5 on Tuesday versus Toronto, Derek Jeter now has a .303 OBP (.254/.303/.316). Unless you are completely braindead, there is no way anyone can justify having a leadoff hitter with an OBP this low.

Not only should Derek be removed from the leadoff spot, but he should also be buried in the bottom of the order until he proves he can hit again. Gone are the days when we could say, “well, he still hits better than most shortstops,” because that isn’t true anymore either. Entering Tuesday’s game, his wOBA of .286 ranked 9th among 12 AL shortstops with at least 140 PAs.

It’s time the front office and coaches grow a pair.
