I'm sorry: is this, or is this not, Derek Jeter's night? Are we not saying farewell to The Captain tonight? Someone better get the umpires on board then, because on the second goddamned pitch of the game, Derek Sanderson Jeter went to his motherfucking left and snagged a rocket off the bat of Andrew McCutchen. He then… »7/15/14 8:35pm7/15/14 8:35pm
