Maybe Jeter Was Right

Last week Jeter was quoted in the Daily News about his early season struggles and said:
"I can't change anything that happened in the first month of the season," Jeter said. "Yeah, I didn't swing the bat well. I probably was swinging a lot mainly just on my arms and I wasn't using my legs. I think as of late, I've been using my legs a lot better."
I was sceptical at the time, but maybe Jeter knew what he was talking about. Here are his recent numbers:

In his last 6: .393/.414//643, 2B, 2 HR and 3 RBI
In his last 13: .345/.383/.491, 2 2B, 2 HR, 5 RBI

Yes, those are clearly both two small sample sizes, but it's a start.
