Derek Jeter scratched with a tender calf

New York Yankees shortstop Jeter stretches during workouts before a spring training baseball game against the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin

There are so many guys who cover the Yankees that when some bit of Yankees news is released, my Twitter feed fills up with multiple identical tweets. This morning’s version: “Derek Jeter has a tender calf.”

That’s what she said.

Anyway, Cap’n Jetes is out of the game today and likely will sit through the weekend as well.  Which is what you do with a 37 year-old shortstop who isn’t battling for a position or anything. Seems like no biggie.

      Take your time, Cap, enjoy your veal. Rare is much better than well-done.

    Can’t he get a back scratcher, or some anti-itch ointment instead?

    I’m actually curious if he got the name of the gift basket… errr.. girl that he hurt it with

    Tender calf?
    Don’t they call that veal.
