Derek Jeter is quite good at playing baseball. As such, he’ll earn north of $30 million this year in salary and endorsements. Despite a poor offensive season by his standards, fans voted Jeter to his ninth All-Star team, where he will start at shortstop for the American League on Tuesday night. Add to that his four World Series rings and dalliances with actresses and beauty queens, and there is a lot to recommend the Yankees star. There’s just one small blot on his résumé: When it comes to playing defense, Jeter sucks.
