Wednesday’s New York Times printed Derek Jeter’s baseball obituary on Page One:
DETROIT — Derek Jeter’s 100th at-bat of the season came in the eighth inning Monday night against the Tigers, in a situation that over the years had all but defined his career with the Yankees. With two outs, the score tied and the go-ahead run on third base, Jeter strode to the plate, confident as ever.
He tapped meekly back to the pitcher, ending the rally. In that, it wasn’t all that much different from many of the 99 at-bats that preceded it.
There are plenty of to be sure grafs, but overall the Times says stick a fork in Derek Jeter, he’s done.
