It got lost in the fun of Old Timers’ Day, but today is Derek Jeter‘s 37th birthday. I was kinda surprised he didn’t make the short trip up from Tampa for the event, but who knows what’s up with his rehab schedule. Obviously his priority is getting back on the field. It’s hard to believe the Cap’n is 37 though, isn’t it? It sucks watching his play decline but it happens to everyone. He’s the first homegrown megastar whose career I was able to watch from start to finish, and there’s something both happy and sad about that. Happy birthday, Derek.
Here’s your open thread for the night. The ESPN Sunday Night game is in San Francisco for the Indians and Giants (Carmona vs. Bumgarner), so that should be fun. You all know what to do here, so have at it.
