07:50 AM ET 04.03 | As April 6 approaches, Yankees GM Brian Cashman decided to get in front of the story. Derek Jeter, still recovering from offseason surgery on his left ankle, won't be ready to come off the disabled list on Saturday, the first day he is eligible, [Cashman] said Tuesday. "He'll be ready when he's ready, no sooner," Cashman said. "He won't be ready April 6. You can't make him ready until he's ready. Same with those other (injured) guys." Jeter is working out at the Yankees' complex in Tampa after discomfort in the ankle slowed his spring training. He was not at Opening Day Monday at the Stadium; instead, he played catch on a minor-league field. Tuesday, Cashman said, Jeter "did some strengthening work and physical therapy."

Morning Lou.

Takes longer to bounce back, but I think Jeter will at some point ... he loves playing the game. He's not ready to sit on the sidelines and coach, mentor, or commentate just yet.

Morning Clem, Cat.

Fun at the ranch today - my job may be changing soon - some interesting hitches have occurred with my position in the contract transition. Too complicated to get into here, now. But it's just that I hate corporate manoeuvring.

I'm getting to old for this scheiss!!!!

Funny thing - I'm not really worried in the least..... for me - I account that for a "a joy that passeth all understanding"..... strange not to be stressed in a "stressful" situation..... ;-)

You have learned well, grasshopper.

Made a comment on the TOR thread and just have to repeat it here......

Did find one tidbit funny. After 3 passed balls in the 1st two innings yesterday. The 3rd string catcher give the starter some advice on how to set up behind the plate to give him a better chance to react to the pitch.... and after that - no more passed balls. Of course - Dickey got better too. But if this is all it takes to bring out the "boo-birds" - TOR is in for a long year.
