So it looks like Derek Jeter will not be playing for the next two days and it looks more likely that he will begin the season on the disabled list.
Personally, I’m relieved. With the way people were reacting to the anticipation of Brian Cashman discussing the injury this morning, you’d have thought Jeter’s ankle had fallen off his leg.
It didn’t. Yet.
The first headache surfaced two weeks ago and Mariano Rivera described it as more than the garden variety discomfort that two aspirin could make disappear.
“It was severe,’’ Rivera told The Post yesterday morning in a George M. Steinbrenner Field dugout.
Cashman said the Yankees weren’t frightened by the diagnosis and that Rivera has been following the proper protocol.
With the way this year has gone so far, I wouldn’t be surprised if Mo’s eyes didn’t pop out of his head sometime soon.
