As long as he shows up and says he’s healthy — and when has he not done those things? — Derek Jeter will be in the Yankees lineup this afternoon. It will be his second Major League game of the season, and his first straining his quadriceps in his initial attempt to come off the disabled list. At this point, the Yankees need their captain. [3]They need him to hit. They need him to lead. They need him to get this season moving in the right direction again. Is one man enough to get things turned around?
