Captain and leadoff hitter for the New York Yankees, Derek Jeter, was benched on Thursday, for the final game of the series against the Detroit Tigers. The Yankees lost 3 of 4 against the Tigers, who were 12-16 going into the 4 game series. Jeter appeared to be sulking after the benching and not exactly exhibiting Captain-like qualities, sparking speculation that he not only will be dropped in the order, but that A-Rod may be taking over as el-Capitan. Is anyone convinced that the Yankees are still getting value for their $17 million contract for Jeter?
