Remember this play -- Jeter's perfect, impossibly instinctual why-is-he-even-on-the-screen backhand flip to Jorge Posada? This play never happened. That's because in 2001, Jeter doesn't get to flip the ball to Posada if the Yankees don't make the playoffs, and the Yankees don't make the playoffs if they aren't anchored by Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte, who combined for 32 wins.
