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:

-- Facebook
-- Twitter
-- iPhone
-- Abigail Breslin
-- The Hunger Games
-- TMZ (HOW DID WE LIVE?!?!?!)

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

The idiocy is remarkable....

People are actually voting that this could be career-ending? Is this a joke?

Oh well. I guess he can go back to his second job with his buddy A-Rod with making sure no woman in Hollywood hasn't been had and infected by the two of them

I took the stupid "Yanks can't win w/o him" question as a true/false questions. To me, it's false, so I answered no. One player doesn't win games. It's a team effort. And Jeter hadn't been performing that well at the plate anyways. I don't think it will make a difference. I'm wondering why A-Rod is the highest paid athlete in sports. What the hell is he doing?? They are all slumping right now.
