Jeter to play Wednesday against Indians

CLEVELAND -- Derek Jeter got his way.

Jeter will be in the Yankee lineup for Wednesday night's game against the Indians, making this the first day when he realistically could become the first Yankee with 3,000 hits. Jeter, four hits away from 3,000, has already had two four-hit games this season.

After Jeter had two hits in the Yankees' 9-2 win Tuesday night, manager Joe Girardi said he believes that his shortstop will need a day off this week, and strongly suggested that he would rest Jeter in the final game against the Indians. Girardi said the decision had nothing to do with a desire to try to make sure Jeter gets his 3,000th hit at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees go home after Wednesday's game, with a four-game series against the Rays beginning Thursday night. But the Yankees are on the road after the All-Star break, so if Jeter sat Wednesday (or if he goes hitless), he would need four hits in four games to reach the milestone at home.

Jeter, as usual, said he didn't want a day off.

Girardi said Tuesday that he would also consider giving Jeter a day off Thursday, but it's hard to believe that Jeter would miss one of his four chances to get 3,000 at home. It seems more likely that Jeter would take a day off after reaching 3,000.

Jeter has good numbers (5-for-12 career) against Justin Masterson, the Indians' Wednesday night starter. He also has great numbers (5-for-9) against Jeff Niemann, scheduled to start for the Rays on Thursday.

With Jeter in the lineup, there is some chance that the run to 3,000 could end Wednesday. Girardi certainly wouldn't pull Jeter out of a close game, even if he already had three hits and his spot in the lineup was due up again.

Do you think that the "better record" without Jeter may have more to do with a starting pitching staff with an ERA of around 2 over the last 2-3 weeks rather than the superior play of Nunez? 

There is no argument that Jeter has turned into an average player. That happens at that age. To say that Jeter is "hurting the team" and "should fade away" with a such small sample size of games without him is silly.

Jeter, while good, is hurting the team. They have a much etter record without him this year. So yes, he should fade away. I hope he gets 3000 and then does just that.
