"We’re all big Derek Jeter fans since we were younger, watching the World Series and everything, from ‘96 to the recent one."

Said the Tigers’ Delmon Young.
“We all grew up, backyard baseball, wanting to win the World Series either against the Yankees or getting through the Yankees to get to the World Series, especially with Derek Jeter as the catalyst. Unfortunately, it happened. We’d love to see him out playing with us and playing against him, because it is really fun playing the Yankees, especially when Derek Jeter is healthy.”

Tigers got a big break w/ Jeter going down.

I knew he was probably really injured when he needed help getting off the field.

As much as I am not a Yankee fan, I am a huge Derek Jeter fan...it was hard to see him taken off. And I was surprised at how it happened. Very awkward-looking injury.

This will hurt the yankees chances.

Yes, two bad losses last night.

We [Yankees fans] really took a hit.

ARod could erase all the bad feelings about him by stepping up now and hitting a handfull of homeruns. Too bad, I don't think he can do it anymore.

Yankees aren't even selling out Yankee Stadium for this series.

I hate the Yankees in the sports fan sense, I would have loved to see them go home, but this is not the kind of bad thing I want to happen to the Yankees.

I much more like the way Jeeter didn't show up in the WS vs the Marlins.

Man, that is a potent statement!

I got the feeling this guy is having fun all the time. That's really a statement of respect for a competitor.

Yeah. What's up with that?

Did they become Dodger fans?

AT&T will be stuffed to the Fire Marshall limit tonight for Giants-Cards.

The only empty seats will be in the commodes.

GO GIANTS!

Selling out.

Might have something to do with October baseball and temps in the 30's. That stadium is a COLD place to sit for five hours at this time of year.

Other than that ... ?????

Jeter this, Jeter that. Delmon Young sounds like he has a man-crush on Jeter.

As long as Jeter doesn't ask him for help moving or a ride to the airport.

"That's a big step in a male relationship. The biggest. That's like going all the way."

JERRY: So, you like him.

ELAINE: I don't understand. Before you were jealous of me. Now you're jealous of him?

JERRY: Ah, I'm jealous of everybody.

(phone rings)

JERRY: hello. Oh, hi. What's happening? … what? oh um, sure, … um, yeah, okay, uh. I'll see you then. Yeah, yeah, Bye.

ELAINE: Who was that?

JERRY: That was Keith [Hernandez].

ELAINE: What's going on?

JERRY: He wants me to help him move.

ELAINE: Help him move? Move what?

JERRY: You know, furniture.

ELAINE: So, what did you say?

JERRY: I said yes, but I don't feel right about it. I mean I hardly know the guy. That's a big step in a male relationship. The biggest. That's like going all the way.

ELAINE: And you feel you're not really ready for,…

JERRY: Well we went out one time. Don't you think that's coming on a little too strong?

[Kramer enters]

KRAMER: What's going on?

JERRY: Keith Hernandez just asked me to help him move.

KRAMER: What? Well, you hardly know the guy…. What a nerve. You see wasn't I right about this guy? Didn't I tell you? Now, you're not going to do it are you?

JERRY: … I said yes.

KRAMER: YOU SAID YES!? Don't you have any pride or self respect? I mean, how can you prostitute yourself like this? I mean what are you going to do? You're going to start driving him to the airport?

JERRY: I'm NOT DRIVING HIM TO THE AIRPORT!

Mitchell said...

They should make a one-time exception for humans on Cute Overload and show a picture of Minka Kelly.

ricpic said...

Driving another guy to the airport is the ultimate in submission. Even Titus balks at doing that.

Joe Schmoe said...

Jeter sucks.

Arod swallows.

Craig said...

Ichiro went 4 for 6 with a two run homer in the bottom of the 9th to match the feat of Ibanez, who went 2 for 5. Without their offense the game was a shutout.

Chip S. said...

I don't see why they can't shoot Jeter's ankle full of painkillers, wrap it up, and send him out to play. It's not like his range at SS would be any worse.

Craig said...

He probably broke it because it was shot full of novacaine to kill the pain from the foul balls he hit off his foot in the Orioles series. He could barely walk in the last few innings of Game 4, then outran a double play ball early in Game 5 and looked like he was 19 again. He followed that with another foul ball that looked like a good bet to have shattered his calcaneus.

Lem said...

Thats a gamer..

The next best thing to playing with the best... is to play against the best.

Two cheers for Delmon Young.

EMD said...

Overrated. Cost his team wins in the field this year with a negative dWAR.
