His fellow Yankees welcomed him back into the locker room and dugout, but also gave their opinions on PED usage in MLB and the associated punishments.
A big bat is returning to New York’s lineup on Friday. And no, we’re not talking about Alex Rodriguez.
Do something for the fans, the ones who faithfully come out and sit in those expensive seats, whether behind the plate or in the bleachers, to watch this injury-depleted, controversy-entangled team. Do something to show them they count.
There’s always been this intangible quality about Jeter. You can’t quite put your finger on it. It’s hard to quantify what gives Jeter the supernatural ability not to feel pressure and rise whenever the Yankees desperately need a spark.

The New York Yankees acquired Alfonso Soriano from the Chicago Cubs on Friday, bringing back the seven-time All-Star to provide a power boost to a team that desperately needs more pop.
These are hard days for the New York Yankees. When the big move is the re-acquisition of Alfonso Soriano from the Chicago Cubs and it’s one that makes complete sense, you know the Yankees are in trouble.
