ON DECK: Watching the Villain get hurt
Superman doesn't want to beat Lex Luthor because the villain ended up tearing his hamstring.
Batman doesn't want to defeat the Joker because the clown-faced bad guy's knee blew out.
I don't want to watch Derek Jeter get taken out of the postseason because he breaks his ankle. On Saturday night, the Yankee I most hated, respected and feared showed his own playoff mortality when he fractured his left ankle. I always wondered how I would feel if Jeter got seriously injured and I'm happy to say that I didn't enjoy it.
The New York Yankees head to Detroit down 2-0 and are ready to face Justin Verlander, one of the top pitchers in the game. I enjoy those facts. But I don't enjoy that Jeter, a man who always did it the right way for the wrong team, is gone for good.
But getting to see Alex Rodriguez slowly circling the drain with every benching and strikeout? Now, I enjoy that immensely.
