For me, and likely many other teenage and 20-year-old Yankee fans, Jeter represented a childhood role model. For my generation, he means just as much as Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio or Babe Ruth meant to the young people of their respective generations.

The Mets have not exactly had a whole lot of highlights thus far in 2013. In a season marred by an overworked bullpen, a lack of clutch hits, and an inept outfield, Matt Harvey has pretty much been the only reason fans, as few as they may be, continue to go to Citi Field.

Many will say that barely squeaking by the Orioles is hardly something to cheer given their comparative payrolls and resources. at this point I don't care, with their backs against the wall it was a welcome change of script to see the Yankees stand up and push back for once.
