Tough Break, Jeter Out

Future Hall of Fame shortstop Derek Jeter has been diagnosed with a fractured left ankle and will miss the remainder of the postseason.  The affliction occurred during the top of the 12th inning of game 1 of the ALCS.  The injury is a massive blow to the Yankees lineup and on-field leadership in their quest for title #28, Jeter was hitting .333 during the course of the postseason netting 9 base hits in 27 at-bats.  3 months is the expected time-table for the injury which should put Jeter in line for a full recovery by spring training 2013.

In other poor news for the Bronx Bombers, a furious 9th inning rally ultimately fell short as the Tigers edged out the Yankees in 12 innings by a 6-4 score. The Tigers now lead the best-of-seven series, 1-0 and have regained home field advantage.  Can the Yankees survive the loss of Jeter and claim the American League Pennant?
