Old News – Derek Jeter will be ready when he’s ready

Derek Jeter is expected to only play in minor-league games until the start of the season.

I know, I know. It’s old news, but because Jeter has been my favorite player my entire life, I cannot put it off any more. Derek told reporters yesterday during yesterday’s morning workout that, as everybody in the Yankees organization keeps saying, it will continue to be sore, but his ankle is not broken and there is nothing beyond that soreness wrong with his tendons. I know that Derek doesn’t B.S. us and he is telling the truth, and clearly getting sick of the doubt surrounding his abilities. If Derek says he will be fine, then he will be. As of now he is day-to-day and expected to only play in minor-league games until opening day. I still think he will get at least 190 hits this season.
