    Is Derek playing tonight?

    There was speculation that Derek Jeter would sit out tonight. I know he wants to play. Did anyone get the final word on that?

    Of course, I am hoping he plays and gets 2 or 3 hits, especially because I have tickets to tomorrow's game and want to see the 3K hit.
    I am ready for NUMBER 28!!!

    After last night's game I hope he goes back in tonight. A few hits tonight can give him an excellent chance to get it at home. I also want to see him have the opportunties to get his numbers up.

    Re: Is Derek playing tonight?

    Just got off the phone with GM Brian Cashman, who told me that, contrary to all the signals Joe Girardi sent out after last night's game, Derek Jeter will be in tonight's lineup against the Indians. Maybe Jeter's career numbers vs. Justin Masterson, tonight's starter, had something to do with it -- 5-for-12, .417 -- maybe Jeter made a strong argument in his own defense, or maybe Girardi just realized (rightly) that if Jeter gets a hit or two tonight, it would greatly increase his chances of getting No. 3000 at home over the weekend before the All-Star break and the two city road trip that follows it. I just wrote a full story on this that will be up on the site soon.

    I like Joe overall, but he's the most non-committal manager I have ever seen. I have no clue what he was thinking when he was talking about possibly sitting Jeter tonight.

    I must have missed something in last night's game...why would Jeter be sitting anyway? Rest the hammy?

    Seriously....
    Do we need another thread about Derek Jeter? Why don't we find out what Jeter eats for lunch and start a thread about that.

    Speaking of diets, looking at CC last night I think he's back on the Captain Crunch.
