O Captain! My Captain!
Derek Jeter is looking more like the Jeter of old in terms of his hitting. He's swinging the bat as well as anybody in the majors, with the exception of the godly Matt Kemp, of course.
Jeter is the best bat the New York Yankees have right now, and while it may be a little premature to say it, I'm gonna say it: Derek Jeter is going to win his first batting title this year.
I may be a homer. I may also be looking for an interesting angle to write about. But I certainly believe that Jeter can win his first batting title this offseason. He'll at least contend for it.
It's only April, and it's going to be a long season as always, but I've got faith in the Yankees captain. Many things need to fall into place if Jeter's going to win it, but he'll definitely be in the running.
