Line: 5 AB, 2 R, 5 H, 2 RBI; 2B, HR, SB
My fantasy perspective: Jeter's 5x5 line is up to .270/42/3/24/8 but still only ranks him as the 16th-best option for a fantasy baseball shortstop. Shallow league owners may have already given up on the Yankee Captain if not for name recognition, but he still has value in deeper leagues.
The pressure of 3,000 hits is off his shoulders and his injury seems to have healed. This is the kind of performance that could put a spark back into his game and keep his season moving in a positive direction.
Love Jeter or hate him, this is the kind of milestone all baseball fans need to be celebrating, regardless of where your heart lies. I, for one, am glad I got to witness such an incredible BASEBALL moment. One I'm sure not to forget any time soon.
