This afternoon’s lineup: No Jeter, No Problem?

Here is your Game 1 lineup against the Cubs:

Gardner 7
Beltran 9
Ellsbury 8
Soriano 0
McCann 2
Solarte 4
Johnson 3
Anna 6
Sizemore 5

People are obviously worried about the fact that Derek Jeter is missing another game but it’s a cold day here in NY and there’s some snow on the ground. You don’t want your almost 40-year-old shortstop who is nursing a tight quad to be slipping and sliding around, do ya?

I didn’t think so.

UPDATE 10:55 A.M.: Derek Jeter told the beat writers that he plans on playing in tonight’s game.
