Derek Jeter Has A Broken Ankle

I'm in awe of what Raul Ibanez has done for this team, but I really wish he would have left his cape in the clubhouse tonight, because if he hadn't done the hero thing again tonight we'd still have Derek Jeter.

Jeter left the game in the top of the 12th inning after scrambling for a ball to his left. At first I thought he'd aggravated his left foot, after fouling a ball off of it the other night. But on replay I saw that he turn his ankle. The scream Derek let out after he landed did nothing to make me feel better.

Now x-rays show that his ankle is broken, and he's lost for the remainder of the postseason. His career is not in jeopardy, so expect to see him in Spring Training next year. But it's up to Jayson Nix and Eduardo Nunez to carry the SS load from here on out.

Lord help us.
