Your morning roundup for July 4, the day we added needed precision to our dog shit inspections.
What we watched: Derek Jeter, the Yankees' mostly-metaphor shortstop, made his 12th American League All-Star team on Sunday, per the fans' vote. He's been bad this season. But another shortstop killed the Yankees on Sunday, while Jeter was playing in a Trenton Thunder-Altoona Cove game on a rehab assignment. Eduardo Nunez has replaced Jeter at short in recent Yankee games, but a sore hamstring kept Nunez on the bench for Sunday's Subway Series finale.
