timeprime has to turn into internet tough guy at some point. Little man, big talk. He'll soon be telling us he has to go play big pot poker but he'll be here all night. The world isn't a jockey locker room. You're nothing but a loudmouth once you leave the track, dumbass.
But, back to your question, burnsy, winning changes a lot of things. If the Yanks hardball Jeter and win games without him(and there's no reason to think they wouldn't), the wounds heal a lot faster. If they miss the playoffs without Jeter, the front office will be the dumbest that every existed and George's boys will have ruined the old man's team. That's just the way it is.
