This week (June 20) in Sports Illustrated

June 15, 2011

The SI curse returns?

Maybe it’s a reformed curse, since Derek Jeter wasn’t actually on the cover, but Tom Verducci’s article starts, “Three Grand,” off “Sometime in the next week Derek Jeter could become the third-youngest player, and the first Yankee, to reach 3,000 hits. The road to that milestone was a simple one—until it became complicated.”

Well, guess what — it got even more complicated when the Yankee shortstop injured his calf running to first on hit number 2,994. Jeter’s on the 15-day DL. But then Ike, Ike Davis still isn’t back from his 15-day stint.

FYI, Jeter has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated on 13 occasions.
