..To hear what the MRI on Jeter’s quad tells us.
This is a little surreal. Granderson breaking his pinkie after returning for all of 8 games, now this. Jinxed season. It's Arod's fault, no doubt.
I was just going to say that.
 Grandy's second injury was freakish, but it's a different deal with Jeter. I mean, they really rushed him back. Is it a surprise that a 39 y.o. player coming off a major ankle fracture followed by a related fracture, who hasn't played in nine month save a few innings in rehab, might hurt his leg soon after returning? I's sort of like players with wrist injuries coming back too soon...
Speaking from personal experience as well as observation, it's not surprising that a 39 yo would have problems with muscle strains, but it's not from rushing back. As he said yesterday, he's been running full speed for a while now. Tex is a different matter.
We get Jeter, Granderson, and Pineda back and then trade for a big bat to get playing time at 1B, 3B, OF and/or DH and make a run. That's our last and only chance this year.
We need some Mr. Miyagi magic on Jeter. H
e can, wants to, and will play on one leg if necessary.
Jeter on 1 leg is better than anybody else they can run out there.
