Skeptics Say: It's the same question that always gets asked of his teammates Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera. Can he keep doing it? After seven straight seasons with at least 150 games played and 9 out of 10 seasons with at least 150 games played, Jeter only played 131 games last year. Only catchers and pitchers face a tougher grind than a shortstop, and we saw how Posada came apart last year even as a DH. So at 38, we have to wonder if Jeter can still handle that grind.
