Relevant pre-game note

Quote from the series preview

The biggest question going into 2014 around the Yankees is Derek Jeter, how much time is left on his clock? It reminds me of Jeff Bagwell gutting out every single hit in his final season, and imagine him playing shortstop on top of that. Kelly Johnson takes over for Robinson Cano, he still has some nice pop in his bat - collecting 16 home runs in each of his past two seasons.
