I'm not sure I agree with every thing in here but you've got to check out this hilarious article in the New York Sports Express on the Mets and Yankees.
What does CJ Sullivan have to say about Mr. Jeter? Read on-
After last Thursday's dramatic win over Boston, I thought the Yankees had morphed into the Airborne Rangers and Derek Jeter was like a Captain in the military and not of some capitalistic baseball team. I thought the Mets would be fired upon by the brave Captain Jeter.
Look, I like Derek Jeter. Who doesn't? Heck of a player. Got a lot of heart and class. But he dove into the stands for a baseball. He caught it and got cut and bruised up. That is it. The clucking sportswriters of New York–and you know who you are–made like Jeter was the bravest athlete since Pat Tillman was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan. Hell, I fell into plenty of chairs in my time in the Bronx and got banged up and no one thought I was brave. Or sober.
Jeter gets paid plenty to go after that ball and that he did. Good. He did his job. As did you that day. That is what he is supposed to do. Going into the Mets series opener it was like GI Jeter had come down from the mountains and was going to take his squad out to Queens to take care of the insurgent Mets. "The Catch"—and it wasn't all that great—became "the Story," as did the "amazing" fact that after all poor Derek went through, he was actually going to play against the Mets on Friday. Could it be that he just wanted to pad his already juicy HR numbers against Steve Trachsel? The writers instead went on with how great it was that Jeter would "bravely" go out on a baseball diamond after smashing his up his pretty-boy face. Please. If Jeter cleared a mosque in Kabul I would be impressed. All Derek Jeter did against Boston was catch a foul ball. End of story.
Who is Sullivan kidding? Jeter full of class? Tell that to Ken Huckaby. Journeyman catcher Huckaby injured Jeter on Opening Day '03 making a hard nosed play full of "heart." Huckaby tried to call and apologize to Jeter. Jeter's response, "He doesn't have my cell phone number." Jeter refused to give him the time of day. I guess you are only allowed to go all out if you are Derek Jeter. What an asshole.
