From The Other Paper:

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."

  • some stupid nobody who will be bagging groceries next year maybe even next week decides he can throw at jeters head ? how about a suspension american league ? probably wont happen though because they say its ok to throw at yankees . time for a new commissioner and league officials who are not biased against yankees .why is bud selig still commissioner antway he has been one of the worst ones in the history of baseball !!!
  • Jeter has no room to complain. He makes a career out of crowding the plate then gets upset when a pitchef tries to take control of the plate back. Go cry somewhere else DJ! Just remember, your buddy Roger Clemens made a career out of throwing at batters heads when he was your teammate with the Yankees! It's part of the game, even though I don't agree with it. You can't have it both ways DJ! Live with and move on!
  • Deliberately throwing at ANYBODIES HEAD IS WRONG! YOU COULD KILL SOMEBODY, A-----E!
  • i think derek handled this very well. many batsman go after the pitcher, but jeter just stared him down with no cuss words either. he was in the middle of the batter's box and that pitch was at his head. clemens was his own person and derek had nothing to do with how clemens pitched. you go derek for your sportsmanship.
  • I think it should carry an immediate ejection and a $ 100,000.00 fine tio throw at a batters head. It should also carry a 1 year suspension from MLB. I know pitchers throw at batters all the time, but not at thier heads.

More reasons to hate ESPN: Skip Bayless (aka Ass Clown)

Thursday Morning Cram Session, 8/23
