Jeter out of the lineup today

New York Yankees Derek Jeter hits single against the Oakland Athletics in New York

Derek Jeter bruised his finger when he was hit by a pitch yesterday.  He’s apparently still sore, so he’s out of tonight’s lineup, replaced by Eduardo “in the 1940s a guy like him would have a nickname” Nunez.

I will now go and contemplate how many players I’d really dedicate a “so and so was scratched from the lineup” post to.  I’m guessing five or six.

Viva the East Coast Bias.

    Eduardo “Pebbles” Nunez. No idea why.

      Or if you like tortured Bermanisms, Eduardo “Knock Off At” Nunez.

        Eduardo “High” Nunez

        “High” Nunez. I believe we have a winner!

    Is “E6” taken? I ‘m sure he’ll be called that at least twice tonight.

    Jeter is a baby. He should be playing today. WTF, a sore finger. Give me a break.

      Since Len doesn’t seem to be around, I will attempt to fill in.

      “Leave Derek Jeter alone!”
