Found August 25, 2012 on Bacon Sports:

Fans tweet the darndest things about athletes. Many of them make about as much sense as what comes out of Skip Bayless mouth. This batch is no exception.

“My thirst is definitely real” is my favorite part of that tweet.

This is how it all starts. Sleeping in a trash can outside of his house comes next.

Great analysis Kevin. I’m sure the Saints are thinking about starting Chase Daniel instead.

Ya, like Drew Brees, Tom Brady sure is a bum. If only the Saints would sign Chad Johnson THEN Drew Brees would be OK.

If I were friends with this guy I would print this tweet on a shirt and wear it all the time.

Ron Powlus > Jimmy Clausen

Can’t say I’ve ever hear this one before.

Would you rather drive a Buick or have Jimmy Clausen as your starting QB?


Jeter fumes after pitcher throws at his head

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...

Is Derek Jeter ‘Above’ steroid Accusations?

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...

Yanks' Jeter stays in game despite beaning

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''...

Open Letter to Joe Girardi: It is time to put your best hitter - Derek Jeter - batting third

Dear Madam or Sir,It is said that next door neighbors cannot savor the Grand Canyon. Usher grew tired of Heidi Klum's face. By 60, Pete Townsend couldn't hear a note the Who was playing. One tragic flaw of humanity is our incredible ability to overlook the obvious.So let us now state the obvious:The heart of the Yankees should bat in the heart of their order.Bat...

Skip Bayless is absolutely correct to question if Derek Jeter is using performance-enhancing drugs

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 →

Would Derek Jeter Still Get Laid If His Face Was Messed Up?

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter had a scary moment on Friday night when he was drilled in the head by a Corey Kluber pitch.  The fastball just barely caught the ear piece on the helmet, saving Jeter from some serious damage.  Jeter was uncharacteristically upset at the Cleveland Indians pitcher, which shows you how scary the moment actually was. The close call created...

Jeter comment exposes Bayless again

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...

Jeter brushes off PED hypothetical

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. The...

Derek Jeter Comments Prove Skip Bayless Is a Nothing More Than A Shameless, Ignorant Self Promoter

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...

Derek Jeter Would Rather You Didn't Bean Him

"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... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

Los Angeles Dodgers Wrap-Up: Four downs and a fresh first?

It may be easy to figure out why the Dodgers rolled over and lost three straight to the Giants this week – the good Dodgers were mediocre and the mediocre ones were simply poor.  Meanwhile, the Giants were just darn good. Matt Kemp was just 2 for 12 in the three game series versus the Giants. He is hitting .179 over his last 10 games. The Giants certainly didn’t look like a...

Podcast Episode 20: Return To The Division

With the exception of two series against the Athletics and Twins, the Yankees' remaining games this season will be against teams in their own division. This episode of the podcast touches on that, as well as Derek Jeter, Nick Swisher, and the Red Sox-Dodgers trade. I close things out with the latest on the Uganda Little League. Leave your comments below or send me an email (ladybatting...

Sabathia sharp for Yanks in return

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...

Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez homers in first at-bat

After only a few hours from arriving at his new home, Adrian Gonzalez hit a three-run homer to help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Miami 8-2 on Saturday night.   Gonzalez, a four time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove first baseman, batted cleanup in his first game as a Dodger.   Los Angeles acquired Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto in a blockbuster trade with...
