Jeter does it again

As bad as last night's game was and as down as I am over our playoff chances, Derek Jeter still plays like...Derek Jeter. How horrendous would last night's game have been if The Captain doesn't hit the home run to win it? He has been hot and cold lately and hasn't hit that great with runners in scoring position all year, but Jeter is still making all the plays in the field and does anybody ever "not" trust him in a big spot?
I've heard from some friends that Jeter really felt bad about not making the all-star team this year after losing the on-line vote to Scott Podsednik, an outfielder hitting .280 with only 19 rbi's.
