Derek Jeter didn’t play today. But he stopped in the clubhouse to talk to reporters. After brushing off questions about his left foot, he addressed the state of the team.
For the first time, you got the sense that Jeter is worried.
â€œIt was a bad trip, you canâ€™t sugarcoat it,â€ he said. “We need to fix some things.”
Jeter has played 13 full seasons with the Yankees and been to the postseason each year. He said several times that he remains confident that streak will remain intact.
Then WFAN’s Sweeny Murti asked a good question. Does Jeter think his teammates are as confident as he is?
â€œThey better be,â€ Jeter said.
Thanks for reading today. The Yankees are off tomorrow and I have a flight back to New York. But there will be a post or two.
