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.

Jeter comment exposes Bayless again

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

Ass-Clown! ((ht: biglead.com)) 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.

Thursday Morning Cram Session, 8/23

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.

Switch pitcher could see action in MLB

He’s been in the minors for the past seven seasons after the Yankees selected him in the 45th round of the 2007 amateur draft.  On the surface, Venditte is nothing more than your non-prospect who has bounced around in small towns in an attempt to make it to the Majors. That’s...
