Derek Jeter injured as Yankees lose to Tigers in Game 1 of the ALCS

Source: newsday.com

The charge Raul Ibaņez put into the Stadium crowd with a dramatic tying two-run homer in a four-run ninth inning early lasted about three innings.
Much of the air came out of the place when Nick Swisher misplayed Delmon Young's scorching liner off David Phelps with one out in the 12th, which finally gave the Tigers the lead again.
And any remaining enthusiasm dissipated a batter later when Derek Jeter got hurt while diving for Jhonny Peralta's ground smash and had to be helped off the field.

7. Even though I hate the Yankees,

I don't like to see this happen. I have the impression that Jeter has done a lot for his team and his city. I would rather see all of them whole and sound. Then, let the Yankees lose.

4. Now both teams can blame Valverde for something.

If he hadn't squandered a four run lead in the ninth none of that would have happened.

35. Yeah. But there are all kinds of mouthguards out there.

May be transparent on the front.

But then again - could be a wad of bubblegum. Does/did he chew gum on the field?

22. That's too bad. That's serious pain.

I hope he heals well and quickly and doesn't rush the healing process so it never quite heals right (too many pros do this and shorten their years of playing).

He's from K'Zoo, and he's well-loved there even though he plays for the Yankees.

9. Frickin' Valverde...

...giving us fans a little more drama than we wanted, and keeping us up way past our bedtimes.

Am really sorry about Deter, the Tigers have had their share of injuries, and you'd rather win the game than the other side lose by attrition...

That said, ny beloved Detroit Tigers showed how tough they can be tonight. I wouldn't be happy if I were a Yankees fan right now...

16. Over half a century rooting for the Tigers, but sorry about this.

It happens. At least Jeter can recoup in one of his million-dollar mansions. Go Tigers, and may Valverde never pitch for them again!

19. Yanks are good enough to win without Jeter

 

Less pressure is on them, as they will be seen as underdogs.

23. Nunez does a great job filling in at short.

What I've seen of him, he's actually got more pop in his bat than Jeter. Although not as good a hitter.

28. Dear posters who are alerting on this sports story

This is news of interest to some of our readers. Just as some stories about Latin America only interest a few, or news of the politics in Nebraska only interest a portion ( I could go on, but you get the idea), this is a story of national interest. There is no rule that precludes major sports stories from LBN. The Jeter aspect makes this one of particular interest to many.
If a reader sees a post and they aren't interested, just pass on by and read the next one.

Thanks, Nancy ( LBN host)

30. Speaking as a Tigers fan

I hope Jeter has a swift and trouble free recovery. He's earned the respect of all baseball fans, regardless of their team loyalties.

32. As a White Sox fan, I hate the Gackmees,

but I actually like Jeter. I think it's possible to like and respect various individuals, but hate the collective.
