To begin his first update of the morning, Jerry “Rello” Recco played a cut from a familiar voice as we listened to Suzyn Waldman describe Derek Jeter’s early exit from last night’s 1-0 Yankees loss to the Indians.
Jeter has what is being reported as a grade I strain in his right calf. It is unclear whether or not Jeter will miss any time, but just for fun Boomer & Craig imagined how the aforementioned Suzyn and John Sterling might react if Jeter were to be in tonight’s lineup.
