Derek Jeter sitting out a second straight game

Tight quad my ass! They’re just trying to protect Jeter’s .3123 career BA and keep him ahead of Manny Ramirez’s .3122!

Jeter is 39 years old and played in only 17 games last season. Girardi’s thinking is pretty understandable.

Also there’s this, from MLB.com Yankees beat writer Bryan Hoch …

Girardi: Jeter’s quad got tight on Friday. Had yesterday off. He’s getting today off because of it too. No tests scheduled.

Why, when I was up at university, the entire quad would get tight of a Friday night and we would still be sitting there sober in chapel on Sunday morning.

Tulo has rested his 29-yr old quad just as often as his idol.

A few of us Primates were at a bar on Friday and we thought Jeter was limping a little while running out a ground ball. I think it was at that point when someone opined that Jete's final game may be sooner than many Yankee fans think.

Wow! Yangervis Solarte is a god! 359/405/513. Take that ARod!

I see Jeter started 10 of the first 11 games, surely a heavier load than anybody was expecting. The Ryan injury has meant more Jeter.

Jete's final game may be sooner than many Yankee fans think.

The word "tragedy" is often overused, but it would truly be a national tragedy if Captain Clutch can't be sent off into retirement through a well-earned commemoration at the Yankees final home game to have Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera, Roger Clemens, Paul O'Neill, Scott Brosius, Tino Martinez, Joe Torre, Bernie Williams, Tony Womack, David Justice, Randy Johnson, Mike Stanton, Tony Fernandez, Wade Boggs, Jim Leyritz, Jack McDowell, John Wetteland, Tim Raines, Dwight Gooden, David Cone, Jimmy Key, David Wells, Bud Selig, and Ruben Rivera come out from the dugout to remove him from his Final Game In Yankee Stadium.

you left out Don Zimmer :(
   7. Walt Davis Posted: April 14, 2014 at 03:02 AM (#4685757)
And Luis Sojo.
   8. Gonfalon Bubble Posted: April 14, 2014 at 05:00 AM (#4685765)
And Challenger the homing eagle.

If the Yankees don't give Jeter a gift basket at his retirement ceremony, they will prove they have no sense of humor.

[5] You left out Chad Curtis. Maybe the Yankees can get him furloughed for the occasion.

come out from the dugout to remove him from his Final Game In Yankee Stadium.
Can Ken Huckaby be there too to give Jeter the silent treatment?
   12. simpleton & childlike gef the talking mongoose Posted: April 14, 2014 at 10:53 AM (#4685850)
And Mike Crudale.

...and all of the above people will be operating a giant Ouija board so that Big George can have his say too.
