Well, so much for my thought that Derek Jeter would break Lou Gehrig's record Monday. Despite having two games to do it, Jeter went 0-for-8, and is still four hits away from surpassing Gehrig. Maybe it will happen today.
Squawker Jon and I went to Asbury Park for the day to enjoy the end of summer, so we didn't get to see much of the first game, other than what we saw on a restaurant TV. And the second game was effectively over by the time I got home. I sure am glad A.J. Burnett finally won another game, though.
In other news, I wrote a piece for The Faster Times about Milwaukee Brewer Prince Fielder's over-the-top celebration after Sunday's walkoff win. I had some Milwaukee-related suggestions for other things Fielder could do for an encore.
