Just Win

Derek Jeter is in Toronto, but he knows the feeling in the Bronx.

“I think people are annoyed,” Jeter said. “I don’t want to speak for everyone, but it looks like people are bothered by it (losing). People show their emotions in different ways; not everyone throws things or bangs things around, but it still bothers them.”

Jeter was talking about his teammates, but he could have been talking about people on the Grand Concourse or at Ball Park Lanes or in the Crown Diner. This isn’t a 25-man effort. There are over a million people in the Bronx and over four million will stream into Yankee Stadium this year.

They all want better.

“There’s no secret formula; we just have to win,” Jeter continued. “That’s it. Period. You have to hit better, pitch better, do everything better. There’s no secret recipe to turn things around.”

No secrets. Just win. Tonight.
