These days it seems like there are only bad rumors surrounding the sport of baseball, the New York Yankees and Derek Jeter. But that is not the case today. Even though he is currently recovering from a recently-fractured ankle, superstar Derek Jeter is promising a return in 2013.
"No doubt," Jeter said at a news conference at Yankee Stadium, where he addressed his latest setback from a fractured ankle. "When you have doubt, that is when you have trouble."

Jeter claims that all of the doctors who have analyzed his ankle tell him the bone will heal and he will be 100 percent healthy again.
"I've been told this bone will heal," Jeter said. "When it heals, I'll be ready to go. It is frustrating that I can't magically make it heal sooner than it is taking. But there is no doubt. I have no doubt."
Even though Derek Jeter promises a return at some point in 2013, the savvy 38-year-old is smart enough not to place a timetable on his return.
"I'm not getting into timelines. The last timeline I set, I didn't make," said Jeter, who seemed in very good spirits. "Whenever it heals, I'll be back."
This should go without saying, but Derek Jeter is a New York Yankees legend and the entire organization suffers without him. The team does not play as well without him in their lineup and tickets do not sell quite as well when fans do not have an opportunity to see him play live. In addition, Jeter's absence also hurts Yankees memorabilia sales.
Derek Jeter will go down in history as one of the best and most popular New York Yankees of all time. The team and all of its fans absolutely love him and want him to return as soon as possible. Hopefully he will not suffer anymore setbacks once he does finally return to the baseball field.
