Jeter Breaks Ankle Again, Probably In Some Sort of Lead by Example Exercise

By now you've probably heard that Derek Jeter has once again broken his ankle. The new injury was detected by an MRI, ordered by team doctors who noticed Jeter was hopping around the bases rather than using both legs to run.

Jeter won't be back until after the all-star break, when he plans to go 5 for 5 and hit his 3,000th hit by going yard. Only one other player has returned from a leg injury after the all-star break to accomplish such a feat, Jeter himself, so there is precedent.

This setback has been difficult on the Yankees, who have become so accustomed to the good health and longevity of their players that few even knew what the team meant when it was announced Jeter's ankle had broken. 'Broken what?' was the most common inquiry upon hearing the news.

More game updates guys! I need a forum for my meandering, derivative rants about the team's lineup.
