07:07 AM ET 07.12 | So much for happy returns. There was reason to doubt Derek Jeter before, and even more reason to doubt him now. He wants us to think he can be the same guy who led teams to championships. The Yankees want to think he can be the same. You might even go so far as to say the Yankees need him to be the same. And he couldn't even make it through his first game of the season without getting hurt. He couldn't get through one day, even though the tests for his left ankle were fairly simple ones in the Yankees' 8-4 win over the Royals on Thursday. He couldn't get through one day, even though on this day he was simply the designated hitter and didn't need to make any of the quick movements required at shortstop. He left Thursday's game with tightness in his right quad.

A quad is an injury that could happen to anyone. It usually happens from being out of game shape. Jeter will have to nurse it and come back stronger. He will be fine. Unfortunate, but #2 ain't done yet.

This is so ridiculous it's funny. Jeter is back one day, rehabbing at the MLB level and already his career is over. One stinking game. It's so stupid it's amazing.

Thanks for sharing Lou. Are you trying to emulate Dole or something?
