Yankees' Chavez Says Runner Was Safe On Jeter Flip

"Eric Chavez, a third baseman for the Yankees, was a standout with the A's in 2001, when Derek Jeter's flip kept his team alive in their ALDS.

Approached as an expert witness, Chavez on Wednesday disagreed with the notion that Giambi would have been out at the plate without Jeter flipping an errant throw to catcher Jorge Posada

"I thought he was safe anyway," he said.

Giambi reached out to step on home plate instead of sliding. Chavez said he believes Oakland should have pinch-run for him."
