Yankees: Champions are not born they are made

Even after losing two of three games to the Rays, the New York Yankees left Tampa Bay the same way they arrived, 3.5 games out of the AL Wild Card.

Starting tonight, according to ESPN New York, Yankees Captain Derek Jeter will be back on the field for the start to a three-game set vs. the Toronto Blue Jays.

After this series, the Yankees fly home to the Bronx for a much-needed day off before things get ridiculously tough.

As come this Friday, the Bronx Bombers embark on a 17-game stretch that will send shivers up your spine.

Take a look for your self:

If the Yankees are still playing in October, no one can deny that they didn’t earn a playoff spot this season.

Could Jeter be this team’s lucky charm?

Well… the definition of a captain is one who commands, leads, or guides others.

And isn’t three times a charm?

So, could Jeter’s third return from injury is happening now for a reason?

Hey weirder things have happened….and whatever works.
