Yankees Lose Jeter for Rest of Playoffs

Tough loss in many ways for the Yankees last night, as they lost in extra innings to the Tigers 6-4, but more importantly lost Derek Jeter for the rest of the postseason with a fractured ankle. Normally losing a player would not be the end of the world for a team, but Derek Jeter means a lot to New York. He has been their best hitter in the playoffs and one of the best lead off batters in the game. His defense is still good too, just think back to Game 5 of the ALDS vs. the Orioles, when he got CC Sabathia out of a jam. You can't replace a Derek Jeter. Now the Yankees are only down 1-0 in a best of 7 series with the Detroit Tigers, but that also includes 2 starts for Justin Verlander. I don't like the Yankees' odds.

As for the NLCS: Game 1 is tonight San Francisco between Cardinals and Giants. Battle of the last two World Series Champions. Should be good.
