Assorted Yankees Blogging

I know Derek Jeter's a gamer, but he's really doing damage the team by playing while hurt. For one, he clearly can't hit right now because of the injury to his hand, and no team benefits from having an automatic out in the lineup (especially one batting in the two-hole). In addition, because he can't field he's having to DH, which means that his presence in the lineup requires that either Andy Phillips or Jason Giambi (both of whom currently are hitting) ride the pine in any given game.

(And yes, I just saw Swisher's inside the park homerun. Cabrera really a good fielder, honestly.)
