"It's Easy To Lose Sight Of The Fact That Everyone Makes That Kind Of Play All The Time..."

Thanks to his vaunted grace and tremendous skill, Yankees captain Derek Jeter was able Tuesday night to make a pop-up to shortstop look as routine as it actually was. "Look at him effortlessly settle under that ball and close his glove around it as it falls slowly in," gushed Yankees radio announcer John Sterling, who also had the privilege of broadcasting Jeter's catch of a soft humpback liner in 2002. ... Later in the inning, Jeter made an easy play look difficult with that jump-throw thing he doesn't need to do.

And real life.

As much as I assumed this was the onion, it's sad that I still needed to mouse over the link to confirm.
