Seems Like Old Times

When Derek Jeter came to bat for the first time this season the Yanks were behind 3-0. He reached first by beating out an infield hit. Not exactly a Willis Reed moment, this being July and all. But what the hell? Hyperbole comes easy round these parts, especially when talking about Derek Jeter. He didn’t get another hit but drove in a run and was robbed of a single, too.

The Yanks caught up and then went ahead of the Royals, pounding out 8 runs. Kansas City didn’t score after the 2nd inning and the Yanks earned a series split.

Final Score: Yanks 8, Royals 4.

Smile…except it wasn’t all pretty. Jeter left the game early and will have an MRI on his quad.

Smile for today's game, but cross your fingers for tomorrow's...apparently the Cap'n is having an MRI on his quad, which tightened up during the game.

listening to Jeter after the game, I'm guessing the Quad thing isn't THAT major...he didn't really sound frustrated or anything. Obviously you don't like hearing it, but I'm guessing this is more a product of the fact that his body is basically in Spring Training

Ony phone that gif looks like Cap'n is playing hopscotch at 180 bpm

How about Kurt Gibson instead of Willis. As for Jete, I had a car once that didn't give me anything but pleasure. Once it got old, it tormented me with little squeaks, blinks and tweaks. Everything broke down and had to be replaced. Loved the car, but kept it around too long. Kids hit the ball on the ground and run them out. Old pros cannot do that anymore without consequences.

Don't you wish you really knew what was going on?
