Derek Jeter – not wanting to waste those little sticky notes – is always posting verbal reminders:
“We haven’t accomplished anything,” Jeter said after last night’s win. “We have to stay focused and keep playing well.”
“He always says the same thing,” said Javier from Walton Avenue. “The funny thing is that I still need to hear it. The mood of this neighborhood hangs on Derek Jeter’s words.”
Javier – like all serious fans in the Bronx – takes his lead from The Captain.
“If he says that we need to stay focused then we will stay focused.”
