Found August 12, 2013 on My Sports Rumors:
PLAYERS: Derek Jeter
TEAMS: New York Yankees
It looks like New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter won’t be back in the majors anytime soon after his third trip to the disabled list. Jete went on the D.L. on August 3 this time with a right calf strain. He’s stayed with the team in New York to work out but will be heading back to Florida when the current homsetand finishes up. Although Derek Jeter was seen throwing at the Stadium over the weekend, he will likely head back to Florida at the conclusion of the team’s home stand. “He’ll continue to increase his work here. When we go on the road, I think he’ll probably go down to Tampa and resume baseball activities,” Joe Girardi said. “I think at some point this week you’ll start seeing him do my favorite, tee and toss.” (New York Daily News) Hearing this is deflating for Yankees fans as it makes a disappointing season get even worse. If Jeter was at least on the field there would be someone to cheer for. The post Jeter no where close to returning appeared first on My Sports Ru...

Derek Jeter mask may give you nightmares

The nightmarish mask with the 3-D effect just mysteriously floats through the air. Check out the GIF below...

Jeter ramps up rehab, but weekend in doubt

Yankees fan wore some kind of Demented Derek Jeter hologram mask

Sportress of Blogitude passes along this odd, 3-D Derek Jeter mask spotted last night at the Yankees game. Reportedly one wears it and, Halloween III style, it can't be removed while the rest of the body ages and decays rapidly.

Alex Rodriguez hires top criminal lawyer Joe Tacopina

When the news of the Biogenesis suspensions came down there were no real surprises. A number of players were expected to be suspended for 50 games, Ryan Braun was expected to get a little more, and it was certainly not shocking that the league threw the figurative book at Alex Rodriguez. What is a little surprising 

Former Yankee Shane Spencer Victim of Hoax As Imposter Implies Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera Used PEDs (Audio)

Note to radio producers: If you’re going to have a former Major League Baseball player on your program to talk about a sensitive topic such as performance-enhancing drugs, it might be a good idea to vet them, first. ESPN Radio 104.5 in Albany, N.Y., failed to do just that, and got burned in a pretty spectacular way Tuesday. Shane Spencer occupies a place in Yankees lore that far...

Three Blown Saves By Rivera No Cause For Concern
