Derek Jeter means business. There's been a big "Jeter for MVP" movement the past couple of weeks, and he's doing his best to convince those of us who think Mark Teixeira may be more worthy of the nod to reconsider, following up a .357 July with a .382 August.

Well, at least if I'm gonna lose out on Minka, it's to my hero. (Thanks to the million of you who sent me the link.)

But one thing that won't happen is a minor league baseball promotion dedicated to the Florida quarterback.
