Sliding Into Home:
From ESPN NY
Of all the unthinkable events that could befall the Yankees in this final stretch run, an injury to Derek Jeter is probably the most unthinkable of all.
And yet, it happened in the eighth inning of tonight's game against the Red Sox when Jeter came up lame after grounding into an inning-ending double play.
Jeter had rolled the ankle last week in Tampa but continued to play on it, but after hobbling into the outfield -- he appeared to injure himself on the step after he crossed the bag -- Jeter agreed to leave the game after a brief conversation with Joe Girardi and head trainer Steve Donohue.
Jeter hasn't looked good running the bases in a while, so it would appear that whatever he had been nursing just got much worse. Hopefully he doesn't have to miss that much time. We all know how important he's been to the team this year, and losing him could be devastating.

With a single in the seventh inning in a game against the Red Sox, Yankees captain Derek Jeter tied Willie Mays on the all-time hits list with his 3,283rd career hit.
From Dan Martin:
Derek Jeter called the bone bruise in his left ankle a “non-issue” last week at Tampa Bay.
That’s more difficult to believe now since he was forced to leave last night’s 5-4 win over the Red Sox after aggravating the injury in the eighth inning.
Still, the shortstop said he would be back in the lineup tonight at Fenway Park.
“I don’t talk about...
The Yankees are already looking ahead to October. After Derek Jeter came up lame after lunging for first base, Joe Girardi made the decision to remove him from the game. Jeter reinjured a left ankle bone bruise while trying to beat out a single on Wednesday night. The Yankees will need their captain if they hope to play well into October. Jeter's had a resurgence this season...
Derek Jeter is set to serve as the designated hitter and bat leadoff in the New York Yankees' lineup for the second straight day after injuring his left ankle trying to beat out a grounder against Boston.
Manager Joe Girardi said Friday that he thinks it's an injury that the 38-year-old Jeter will have to deal with the remainder of the season.
Typical for Jeter, he refused...
Not all Yankees fans follow their team because of its many wins, the club's legendary history or, you know, the 27 world championships. Some New York fans, believe it or not, are less about the bravado of victory and more about the sentiment that goes into the game. They grew up watching the game with their grandparents, their middle name came from Babe Ruth, or the only time...
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter left Wednesday night's game against the Boston Red Sox in the eighth inning after hitting into a double-play grounder and limping away from first base.
The Yankees' captain bounced into the inning-ending double play with runners on first and third. After failing to beat the relay, he came up limping just after he stepped on the bag...
If the Red Sox can't beat 'em, they're certainly going to do as much damage as possible. Boston added to New York's troubles on Wednesday night when they turned a double play in the top of the eighth inning. Derek Jeter hustled down the first-base line to beat the throw (which would have made the run that crossed home plate on the play count), but he couldn't...
Derek Jeter limped off the field in the eighth inning of the New York Yankees' 5-4 win over the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night, jamming his already bruised left ankle while trying to run out a double play ball. Manager Joe Girardi didn't listen to Jeter's plea to stay in the game, ordering his shortstop to retreat to the clubhouse and ice his ankle. However, Girardi...
Editor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days. On July 18th, up ten games on the Baltimore Orioles, it seemed that the New York Yankees had all but locked up another American League East title. Apparently somebody forgot to tell that to Buck...
With a single in the seventh inning last night Derek Jeter moved into a tie with Willie Mays for tenth place on MLB’s all-time hit list at 3,283. The Yankees captain bettered the Say Hey Kid this evening in his third plate appearance against Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price, who surrendered Jeter’s [...]
The New York Yankeeslive to see another day in first place.
Granderson holding a hot bat.
The Bombers beat the Red Sox, 5-4 but remain tied with the Baltimore Orioles who just won’t lose as they beat the Tampa Bay Rays in walk-off fashion last night.
But hey, it wouldn’t be a 2012 Yankees win without some bumps and bruises along the way.

One of the great unanswerable questions in sports is: What if? What if Wally Pipp hadn't come out of that game, and the kid Lou Gehrig hadn't stepped in at first? What if the Red Sox hadn't taken a chance on the major league managing bust that was Terry Francona? What if the referees in Oakland on that snowy day hadn't reinterpreted their definition of "tuck...
An umpire's quick decision can be the difference between an extra base hit and an out, but sometimes the result is because he can't move fast enough. New York Yankees batter Eduardo Nunez found that out Friday night after he was robbed of a double during the fifth-inning of the Yankees-Rays game when he laced a blistering line drive into the third base ump. Third base umpire...
