08:15 AM ET 03.20 | The clock is ticking. Derek Jeter has less than two weeks to get ready for Opening Day and on Tuesday, his surgically repaired left ankle didn't cooperate. The Yankees shortstop was scratched from a game against the Phillies due to stiffness near the front of his ankle, although not where Jeter suffered the break in October. ... [As] for April 1, the Yankees still don't know who their shortstop will be and Girardi admitted Jeter's desire to return by that date might be counterproductive to getting completely healthy. "I'd like to have him at shortstop on Opening Day, but if we collectively feel he could use a few more days, we'll wait," Girardi said earlier on Tuesday.

not in the least. Baby steps are needed when working your way back from a semi major operation. It's all good.
Now, if'n we can only stop these chicken little newspaper peeps from sounding alarms of doom and destruction every other day.

Red Sox fans are the best fans in the world. Even a reprobate like you should be aware of that.

It's a damn bar! How clean do you want it? Spread some more peanut shells on the floor. They cover up anything.
