1014_Derek-Jeter_getty_1New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter fractured his ankle during last night's loss to the Detroit Tigers and will miss the remainder of the playoffs.

The Captain suffered the injury trying to make a diving play in the 12th inning. He is expected to be sidelined for the next three months, where he will be presumably be waited on hand and foot by the hottest women anyone has ever seen.

Game 2 of the series is today at 4:00 PM ET and it will mark the first playoff game the Yankees have played since 1995 without Jeter. In case you forgot what 1995 was like, here are a few things that didn't exist back then:

-- TMZ (HOW DID WE LIVE?!?!?!)

Jeter's injury isn't expected to be career threatening, but we gotta ask ...

"Yanks can't win w/o him. Yes or no."

Could you make a simple question any more confusing? How about, "Yanks can w/o him?"

Love Jeter, hate the Wankees. The Wankees will lose because their 'hitters' are not hitting. That is why they will lose, not because Jeter is out.

Hes getting older, it happens. TMZ chill out about "he will be waited on hand and foot by the hottest women anyone have ever seen" Youre taking it to the extreme as you always do right there. Poor guy Herpes and now this.

Not a Yankees fan, but a baseball fan who respects Jeter. This was painful to watch as it unfolded. He told Girardi not to lift him up. He's a gamer. He's done for the season, but if healing time is three months as they say, he will be ready for spring training. He's probably got two years left barring further injury.
