Skipper Joe Girardi said that Jeter’s surgically repaired ankle was feeling cranky.
Cranky is about how I am feeling right now with the way things are going for the Yankees.
Jeter is obviously not fully healed so back on the injury list he goes. A list that way too many players have wound up on this spring.
Here is a quick list of Yankees that have endured some type of injury:
(List in random order)
Derek Jeter – Ankle
Clay Rapada – Shoulder
Boone Logan – Elbow (returned)
David Robertson – Shoulder (returned)
David Adams – Back
David Herndon – Elbow
Curtis Granderson – Forearm
Mark Teixeira – Wrist
Phil Hughes – Back
Michael Pineda – Shoulder
Alex Rodriguez – Hip
That list would make any Yankee fan feel irritable, grouchy and crabby, but not cranky.
I think that word should be designated to Girardi only, as he will need it this season.
