Jet Boy, Jet Girl

Bill:
So "the good news for Yankees fans" is that A-Rod's recent whining about missing his sleepovahs with Jetah is that might "translate to a more comfortable A-Rod this season," and an A-Rod "more likely to relax and hit when it counts."

 

Bill:
Wow! Talk about grasping at straws.

 

Mike:
Yeah, file that one away the next time we in RSN are accused of being delusional.

 

Bill:
But even more entertaining is how that column goes on to rip the previously always media exalted and lionized Derek Jetah.

 

Mike:
You know, we've joked about the Jetah/A-Rod "relationship" befoah, it's only just now dawning on me that the reality of it was actually way moah wiihd

 

Mike:
"Back in spring 2001, when A-Rod recognized the ramifications of the story, he immediately drove from where he was training with the Rangers in Port Charlotte to Tampa. Jeter knew A-Rod was waiting at his house, but refused to cut short a meal and made Rodriguez squirm for hours. When the two finally met, a teary-eyed Rodriguez asked for forgiveness."

 

Bill:
!

 

Mike:
Jetah's as effed-up as A-Rod is.

 

Bill:
I'm in the hitherto unimaginable position of feeling sympathy for A-Rod. I mean he is what he is with his need for validation and insecurities, but Jetah's a sadist fercrissakes.

The question is: was A-Rod wearing a diaper when he drove from Port Charlotte to Tampa?

Oh, well done, Natalie! LMAO.

This makes Manny seem like a grown up. Wha tthe heck is going on over there?

Natalie hit that one so far out of the park it hit my car and dented my fender -- on State Road 36 in UTAH!

Nice.

Kudos, Natalie. There's no topping that.

I don't think I've ever read Joel Sherman before, but I liked this column. He calls Jeter on a BS line and gives proof that it's BS.

The Daily News column makes Jeter sound like an entitled child.

Beautiful, Natalie, beautiful.

I think Bill means "sadist".

What a joke. The same folks who tried to run A-Rod out on a rail last season are now trying to pin Jeter as not being supportive enough? I can't believe I'm wasting any energy even writing this. The non-issue to issue water to wine tricks the NY and Boston media pull are verily those of the bearded Messiah.

Outstanding, Nat.

Stupid me, I read it earlier and thought, hm, it's only about 100 miles from PC to TPA, why would he need a diaper? I guess I am still in off-season form.

Jeter has always struck me as a phony;
maybe it's coming closer to the surface now.

Yes, "sadist." Knew I should have double-checked that. I always confuse the two S&M's. Thanks for the correction.

Hey, you can't have the S with the M. And have it be enjoyable for both parties, anyway.

...withOUT the M. Sorry.

Those two deserve each other :)

Natalie,
I am a Yankee troll who does not usually comment, but I had to for your post--it made me spit my coffee out with laughter. Well done.

I'd like to join the throng of coffee spitting, kudos sending admirers of Natalie's post.

"wiird"

...Perfection!

I got into a meeting at 9:00 this morning, and just got out. And even though I feel like jumping out of a window, Natalie's quip has cheered me right up.

I's like to nominate Natalie's comment to the Soxaholix comment hall of fame.

Natalie, outstanding.

HB... great one today. I linked to it on redsoxnation.net, a great website I wish you'd use more often rather than always going with SoSH.

Wowsa Nat,You cleaned house today. Good on ya -Rich

Seriously, right on. I wish Jeter would be less of a phoney for the press. But, eh, whatcha gonna do?
