Okay, sure, all middle infielders are trained to engage in this kind of subterfuge. But it’s Jeter, man. We’re not going to see much more of him on the diamond, so let’s enjoy it while we can.
What’s that you say? The upcoming All-Star Game will basically be one long Derek Jeter infomercial? Well, that’s true, we’re not going to be lacking coverage of ol’ No. 2 in the days to come. At least this post ended quickly.
