There was a scary moment during the second inning of Friday night's New York Yankees-Cleveland Indians game after Derek Jeter took an inside pitch from Corey Kluber to the side of his head. The Yankees shortstop didn't take the brushback lightly and walked to first base glaring at the young pitcher and mouthing the words, "You don't do that."
The fastball went right at Jeter's head and knocked his helmet off after hitting the bill. You could probably hear the ball smacking Jeter's helmet outside in the parking lot of Progressive Field.
Kluber got an earful from Jeter as he was heading to first base. Something you don't see too often from the Yankees leader.
It was the first start for Yankees ace CC Sabathia after returning from the 15-day DL and Indians players were probably wondering who was going to be plunked — as retaliation for hitting the Yankees captain — when they stepped up to the plate. They got off without a payback pitch.
Jeter avoided serious injury and seemed okay after the beaning. He made one of his patented leaping catch-and-throws to first base for the final out in the bottom of the second to prove it.
Words of wisdom indeed from one of baseball's most revered player. "You don't do that."
This morning in Yankees Universe the story lines include three 3s: A three-game sweep at the hands of the White Sox, a weak three-game lead over a scary Tampa Bay Rays team, and three home runs in as many games for Derek Jeter. It is the first time Jeter has homered in three straight games in his career.That 3rd home run was hit last night. Before the game, Jeter responded to insinuations...
Skip Bayless opened the flood gates on the topic of Jeter and steroids on Wednesday when he questioned if the 38-year-old was having an amazing season through the use of PED’s. Now, it’s not as if Skip (even with all his trollish foilbles) pulled this question out of thin air, after 2 major players have been caught using banned substances this past week alone. Was Skip within...
New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter brushed off sports commentator Skip Bayless' suggestion that human growth hormone was behind the shortstop's noticeably pumped-up stats this season. On the ESPN show "First Take," Bayless— the resident antagonist— said Jeter's performance at age 38 merits suspicion of him "using something."
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter stayed in the game despite getting hit in the batting helmet by a pitch.
Jeter was hit in the left side of his head by a pitch from Cleveland rookie Corey Kluber in the second inning on Friday night.
The force of the impact knocked his helmet off and staggered the 38-year-old Jeter as the crowd went from chanting, ''Der-ek Je-ter''...
New York Yankees living legend, Derek Jeter, recently moved into 11th place on the all-time career hits list, and finds himself 1000 hits behind Pete Rose. Jeter is having a phenomenal bounce back season, after a couple of mediocre campaigns. But if we go back to post All-Star break of last year, Jeter has been [...]
Renowned sports journalist and television personality Skip Bayless said yesterday morning on ESPN’s “First Take” that legendary New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter may be thriving on the diamond thanks to the benefits of performance-enhancing drugs. After recording a career … Continue reading →
About a year ago, I walked out of my apartment in New York City and saw a line 500 deep of teenage girls and their mothers screaming their heads off.
"What's going on?" I asked one of the starry-eyed moms, assuming a pop star or world-class athlete was inside the hotel they were crowding in front of.
"Kim Kardashian's filming her show in there!" she...
Derek Jeter brushed off comments by ESPN analyst Skip Bayless, who raised the possibility the star shortstop may have revived his career by taking Human Growth Hormone.
Bayless made his comments on "First Take" on a day that former Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon became the second big league player in a week suspended for 50 games following a positive drug test.
This is a little bit of a rant and goes somewhat counter to what we want to say here because we know that any acknowledgement of the existence of Pond Scum like Skip Bayless just makes ESPN more eager to keep him on TV.
The latest reason that the man has no business on TV or arguably reporting period is this: He makes a random comment about...
Anyone who has ever watched ESPN, and more notably First Take, knows that Skip Bayless runs his mouth like no one else on the network. It seems like almost on a daily basis Bayless insults some athlete, only he generally targets the ones who most fans admire. It is his entire persona. Bayless makes ignorant sounding comments just so that he can continue his shameless...
"You don't do that," NY Yankees SS Derek Jeter to Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber after getting nailed in the head.
Later, CC Sabathia threw behind Asdrubal Cabrera and both pitchers were...

The New York Yankees were happy to get CC Sabathia back and delighted not to lose Derek Jeter.
Sabathia came off the disabled list and pitched well, Nick Swisher drove in three runs and Jeter shook off being beaned as New York broke a three-game losing streak by beating the Cleveland Indians 3-1 on Friday night.
''He took it like a champ,'' Swisher said of Jeter...
I might be crazy, but I’m really glad that Skip Bayless made those completely baseless, patently unfair, and utterly stupid comments about Derek Jeter last night. Bayless will be hearing about it all day for suggesting, “If you are Derek Jeter, would you think about using HGH right now? I am not saying he uses a thing; I have no idea. But within the confines of his sport...
