Jeter Watch: 2,989 down, 11 to go

Derek Jeter

By C. Trent Rosecrans

Derek Jeter is now a member of a second-place team, as the Red Sox moved ahead of the Yankees in the American League East by a game with an 11-6 victory at Yankee Stadium. Jeter added to his hit parade, doubling in the fifth inning, but grounding into an inning-ending double play in the sixth with bases loaded and the Yankees trailing by three runs. New York will wrap up its series with Boston tomorrow night at Yankee Stadium.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: 1 for 5 with a double

HITS TO GO: 11

ALL-TIME LIST: Jeter will stand at No. 28 on the all-time hit list until he gets to 3,000, when he'll tie Roberto Clemente for 27th.

NEXT UP: As you'd expect, Jeter's plenty familiar with Red Sox starter Josh Beckett. Although he's faced Wednesday's starter Tim Wakefield the most of any pitcher, Beckett isn't too far behind on the list, coming in fifth. The only pitchers who have faced Jeter more than Beckett are Wakefield, Pedro Martinez, Roy Halladay and Sidney Ponson. Against Beckett, Jeter is hitting .300/.341/.425 with four doubles and two home runs. He's 24 for 80 with 12 strikeouts.

I hate the Yankees but totally respect Jeter and have enjoyed watching his MLB career.  I only wish the yanks would have given him a 5 year contract at 25 mil per year.
