And why not?
I made an attempt to shine the spotlight on Phil Hughes’s return tonight, but that was an impossible endeavor with the most popular baseball player on the planet vying for 3,000 hits on ESPN tonight.
That’s right, Derek Jeter, fully recovered from a calf injury (speculative), is now just four hits shy of 3,000 hits, a feat only 27 men in the history of baseball have accomplished.
The stage is yours. If not tonight, it will be again tomorrow. And Friday, and Saturday, and … hopefully not Sunday — I don’t know how much longer I can take the hype.
