Carlos Ruiz gets the cover treatment on Sports Illustrated this week, appearing on a regional edition.

Subscribers and newsstands in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia and southern New Jersey will get the Ruiz cover. The rest of the country will get the Derek Jeter cover.

The story inside is a long and well-deserved piece by the legendary Gary Smith, formerly of the Daily News.
