LADY AT THE BAT: It's Still Impossible For Jeter

It's Still Impossible For Jeter

Okay, so here I was expecting a detailed Derek Jeter interview on, in which he expresses heart-felt support for Alex Rodriguez in light of what was written in Joe Torre's book. From what I'd heard yesterday, that's what it was supposed to be. Well, the interview was detailed, all right. I guess you can say it was heart-felt too. If you're into video games and Jeter's sex-life, that is.

Everything Jeter said about Alex had already been revealed yesterday in the New York Post article I referred to yesterday. The rest of the interview is filled with nonsense about X-Boxs and Minka Kelly. I mean, come on. The interview was posted on I expected more from them than that. How silly of me for thinking so!

Jeter's repetition of his canned "I support him" statement does nothing for me, especially when you include what he said about his precious "Mr T" at some other point during the same day:

"Knowing Mr. Torre, he's never going to intentionally try to hurt somebody. He's like a second father to me. Everyone knows how close we are. He's not going to intentionally go out and do harm to somebody. That's not the kind of person he is."

So, it's business as usual for Derek Jeter, Captain of the New York Yankees.

It kinda stinks that SI is going the way of ESPN: the Magazine with all these puff pieces. The Best Tattoos in Sports!!! and all that stuff. Hey guys, I actually want to read about baseball. Sad.

Yeah, I don't have a problem with magazines doing fluff pieces per se, but there should be some publications out there that stay above that.

Has Derek Jeter ever done a detailed interview? The man has the art of talking without saying anything down to a science, lol! He says he never will (and I believe him) but can you imagine, if he ever decided to do a tell-all type book, the stories he could tell?

I must admit that I don't mind these fluff pieces. They help me get through the pain of the baseball offseason!
