In the end, Jeter hit a homer after all

Derek Jeter was asked a few days ago if he would address the crowd after the game. He agreed, but never wrote anything down.

“I thought about what I wanted to say, but not exactly what it would be,” he said.

Joe Girardi took Jeter out of the game with two outs in the ninth. Only then did Jeter consider his words. Then, speaking off the top of his head, he eloquently wrapped up the evening and expressed the exact message the organization wanted to convey.

That pretty much tells you all you need to know about Jeter, what kind of person he is and what he means to this team. He just had the greatest 0 for 5 in history.
