What happens if Jeter cannot play?
Put me at the top of his fan club. Besides that, I am concerned about just how healed he is. He has had a serious injury and has been cleared to play. I hope he plays all year and bats .350 but if that injury rears it ugly head again what should we do?
Not having him in games is a huge deal. Derek hanging out in the dugout being supportive is not the same as him being on the field. He is a leader. He is our Captain. Replacing him has much more to do than stats. Jorge is gone, Mariano is gone. I don't see any leaders like them.
I guess we have been spoiled for too long.
Go Derek! Go Yanks!
