True to his word, Derek Jeter did not play in Friday's game at Fenway—apparently out of "respect". In any event, Rusney Castillo clouted his second MLB HR in a losing cause, a 3-2 loss to the once-again 'Playoff-Free' Bronx Embalmers. Steven Wright pitched well in the loss—going five innings and giving up no earned runs. He walked none and struck out five. More and more it seems that the knuckle-balling Wright will get a shot at a spot in 2015 rotation. Jeter will DH Saturday and Sunday. Alert the media.
