The Yankees had five years to find a replacement for Derek Jeter. That's how well he telegraphed his retirement. Five years. They drafted a SS, (Cito Culver), in the first round. They signed a Manuto tribute band of nubile 16-year-old Latinos. The closest they came was Eduardo Nunez, the Butcher of Baghad with a glove. In fact, the more we saw of Nunez, the more he looked like...
