I was going to say, A Rod was a damn good SS. Jeter, as I said in another thread, never had great range. I usually say there a bunch of SS I would rather have defensively, but in the playoffs, I will take my chances with Jeter. His play in the 8th inning is proof. It wasn't a 10 on the scale, but considering the situation and the play combined, that was clutch as hell. He also made it look a lot easier than it was.
