It’s no secret that this has been something of a lost season for Our Hero, not to mention our Yankees, but the faithful may take heart that Derek Jeter finally seems to be over the injuries that have plagued him this year. After another good night—a dinger!—leading the Bombers to victory, he is 16 of his last 28 and has pumped his numbers to a respectable .298/.358/.411. The .300 mark is clearly within range, and better still he’s only 2 hits shy of 2,500 for his career. Rumors of his demise have been greatly exaggerated.
PS: He’s dating Lyla Garraty.
