Jeter last played on Saturday against the Boston Red Sox, and he was removed from that game after experiencing soreness in his gimpy ankle. He has been battling problems with the ankle ever since he broke it during in Game 1 of the ALCS last October. It was surgically repaired later that month, but he fractured it again during spring training and never seemed fully healthy when he finally got on the field this season. He didn’t suit up until the 92nd game of the campaign, and hit just .190 this season with one home run and seven RBIs. Jeter underwent a CT scan on his ankle Saturday. While the scan was reportedly negative, the res...

Reflecting Back 12 Years Ago

Do you remember where you were 12 years ago today? I do. I was in my second grade class with all of my friends just having a normal day like everyone else when chaos started to occur.
