WHEN A GLIMPSE OF JETER MEANS MORE THAN THE GAME
It's the countdown. Sure, we need to win every game now, but clearly this team doesn't have the fire in the belly that we expected. I'm tired of being angry about it. We're in the final days of the great Derek Jeter in pinstripes. Let's enjoy that...and if we get a win too, well, that's gravy at this point. The idea of never seeing Jeter is much more important right now.
Chris Capuano started today, pitching 5.2 innings. He gave up 5 hits and 4 runs. The Yankees at the end of today only scored 3 runs and lost the game, but it was the Jeter show in front of a sold out crowd in the Bronx.
Jeter was 2-5 today. Not only that, he scored twice and became the 9th player on the all time runs list with 1920. The interesting part is Alex Rodriguez is 10th on that list with 1919.
The full Yankee run scoring went like this: Brian McCann singled knocking in Jeter in the 3rd. In the 4th, Ichiro Suzuki singled in knocked in Chase Headley. In the 9th, Jeter doubled and knocked in Brett Gardner.
I'd love to give you more on the game, but I there wasn't much of anything today. Trust me... it's about Jeter now. Drink it in...
Final: Blue Jays 6 - Yankees 3
