Jeter Newsbeat

Monday, April 06, 2015

Tanaka doesn’t look like himself in opener; Didi doesn’t resemble Jeter

You thought it couldn’t get more over the top, did you?  You were wrong. 

Beyond the loss, the game raised questions about 1) Tanaka, 2) the Yankees offense, and 3) the unfortunate sap charged with the impossible job to replace the great Derek Jeter…Though it’s hard to recall a major-league player attempting something quite so foolish, certainly not in his debut with a new team, nor while replacing the perfect player.
