Respecting Jeter's Gangster
Today's ninth inning is exactly why this blog is called Respect Jeter's Gangster. Down by one, leading off the inning, Jeter gets on base. Abreu then drew a walk moving Jeter into scoring position. I'm not an A-Rod hater, but this ninth inning reminded me of the 2005 playoffs, where A-Rod promptly grounded into a double play in the ninth inning of a game we needed to win. Why is it that everyone seems to be able to find a way on base in these situations except for A-Rod? Anyway, Yanks lose, A-Rod sucks, yay Jeter.
