Derek Jeter's Career Stats Against The Red Sox

If you quiz any Red Sox fan, he or she might tell you that, in Derek Jeter's career, he hit .600 against Boston with a 1.100 OPS—and 95% of his hits were flares to right with two outs and runners in scoring position. While the reality is a little less devastating, it's still a pretty darn good record. In 267 career regular-season games against The Carmine Hose, Jeter has a .288 average, a .356 OBP, a .395 slugging percentage and an OPS of .750. He's hit 25 HRs and knocked in 125. He's also stolen 55 bases against us. He always seemed to be up at big moments in games—and he usually delivered. Of course, these stats don't count the 19 other games Jeter faced Boston in the post-season. Suffice it to say that Jeter was a major thorn in the side of the Red Sox for two decades—period.
