Only One Way To Replace Jeter
by Eddie Mayrose
Imagine that you’ve booked Tom Clancy to speak at a writing seminar and, on his way to the podium, he falls and breaks his ankle. Just when you think all is lost, Clive Cussler rises from his seat in the audience and agrees to take over. Imagine, still, that Elton John will be performing at your daughter’s Sweet Sixteen party. As he’s stepping out of his car, however, he falls and breaks his ankle. As your little girl begin to cry, the father of one of her friends, some guy named Billy Joel, mentions that he plays the piano a little bit and would be happy to step in. Impossible scenarios? Absolutely. But, despite the odds, it’s exactly where Joe Girardi finds himself this morning.
