Here is the moment I yelled at the TV:
10:40: I need to know if Derek Jeter tried to sacrifice with two strikes, or if Joe Girardi signaled him to do it. Girardi should be the first manager fired in the middle of a World Series if it was him.
And Yankees fan deluxe Ben Kabak of the great Yankees blog River Avenue Blues notes that Jeter bunts on his own all the time with two strikes. Yanks fans should hope The Captain doesn’t become The Manager in 10 years.
10:38: Tim McCarver: “At 0-2, there is no way Jeter is still bunting. Too good a hitter.”
Jeter bunts foul and is out. — Fitzgerald
