Power Outage for the Captain?

Jeter has been on a tear lately, batting .326 in the month of September and carrying a 9 game hitting streak into today. He's had 10 multi-hit games and 17 walks to boot. That being said, the captain has been experiencing a bit of a power outage. He's had just two extra base hits all month, and has gone homerless since August 28th. Not that he's a homerun hitter, but no homeruns in a month, with all the games they played at Yankee stadium? He's hitting well, so I do not think he's injured, but perhaps a day off or a day as the DH could work wonders for the man.

In his entire career, Jeter has hit more than 20's taters in a season thrice. He's been getting on base, and he's also been a speed threat. The Yanks just clinched, so he's going to get time off. If you had to rank the Yanks problems, Jeter would be pretty low on the list.

Raise your hand if you're worried about Jeter.

You see, Ichiro hit a walk-off bomb off Mo not that long ago. Our considerate Captain has been trying very hard to avoid anything that might bring back the unpleasant memory.

Oh, I'm not concerned about him at all. Just pointing it out.

Haha, Raven. There is no shame in giving up a hit to Ichiro. Even for Mo.
