Derek Jeter watches a game-sealing 3-run home run leave the Trop last night.
With the offense devoid of Alex Rodriguez, and employing the artist formerly known as Hideki Matsui, Jeter is being counted on more than usual to make the offense 'go'.
Jeter and Johnny Damon will need to spark an offense that can not afford to wait around for the three-run homerun, at least for now. With the return of Rodriguez and a healthy Mark Teixeira returning to mid-season form this will be a very different offense. But for now, the fort will be held down by scoring runs every which way possible.
