No, we aren’t talking about Alex Rodriguez. His nightmare is recurring and not likely to go away anytime soon. Tomorrow will bring official word that he’s being suspended and the coming days and weeks will give us more than we can stomach.
Today’s nightmare isn’t even Phil Hughes, who didn’t make it out of the 3rd inning today pitching in front of family and friends in San Diego. No, it’s Derek Jeter who has a Grade 1 calf strain:
“It’s been terrible,” Jeter said. “It’s been like a nightmare. The whole season has been a nightmare. I really don’t know what to tell you. I wish that wasn’t the case and we were sitting here talking about something besides another injury. We’ll see what happens. I have no idea.”
The game, a bummer (Padres 6, Yanks 3) but the news is more dispiriting than that.
..with more mishegoss on deck. Buckle up.
