It’s just amazing how these stories come about. One can simply release a doctored photo of the Yankees captain to the media and everybody eats it up. Did anyone actually believe that “The Derek Jeter” would lose himself like that? If there is one guy in this league who you can count on to act in a professional way, he would be the one. If you really believed that photo was real, I wouldn’t be placing any bets anytime soon. But if you knew from the get-go, I would go hop on over to The Sports Geek. It took Harold Reynolds to set the record straight once and for all with this photo:

Update: 10:20AM ET: The video has been removed from Youtube, but the guys over at Deadspin still have the footage.
Update: 1:37AM ET (9/17): (There’s a video. Click here) NSFW! Best video comment so far: “Cc got a white ass..”
Ummmm…I wonder how CC feels about all of this.

Boomer and Carton break down and analyze John Sterling’s terrible call during Casey McGehee’s 2nd at-bat during last night’s game. Johnny clearly wasn’t paying attention and listening to Suzyn try to cover for him makes you want to cringe.
According to John, these four things all occurred during one swing of the bat:
1) Cuts and Misses.
2) Cuts and hits a fly ball down the left field line and the ball is foul.
3) The throw comes in and McGehee is standing on 2nd base.
4) The ball must have kicked into the stands for a “grounds rules double.”

Oh, Derek! The New York Post is reporting this morning that Derek Jeter sends his one-night stands home with gift baskets, which usually include an autographed baseball. This doesn’t sound like “The Captain”…does it? I wonder what Dr. Charles Jeter thinks about all of this.
Jeter is playing the field once again, as he broke up with Minka Kelly this past summer. Here are some highlights from the article:
“This summer, he ended up hooking up with a girl who he had hooked up with once before, but Jeter seemed to have forgotten about the first time and gave her the same identical parting gift, a gift basket with a signed Derek Jeter baseball,” the pal said. “He basically gave her the same gift twice because he’d forgotten hooking up with her the first time!”
“He normally doesn’t go out with girls. He will have them come to his house. He’ll have cocktail parties. His friends invite girls they think he’ll be interested in. He’s very shy,” another friend explained. “He’ll occasionally take girls to a restaurant. He has a couple of restaurants that he goes to that aren’t trendy,” the friend said.
“I know he’s been dating multiple girls. He likes a hole in the wall, or he likes a place that his friends own. He’s very cautious. He’ll only go out on off-nights,” the friend said.
“The girls go through the back-door entrance in the Trump World Tower to avoid the paparazzi,” the pal said.

Still wondering why Sergio Mitre is on the team? We may have found an answer.
The Wall Street Journal today published a survey of eighteen Yankees, in which they asked the players questions like “Who would score the best on Jeopardy?” (Mark Teixeira got the most votes), and “Who would be the toughest to beat in arm wrestling?” (Bartolo Colon won that one). But perhaps the biggest surprise was this: When asked “Who would you most want on your side in a brawl?” the players overwhelmingly picked reliever Sergio Mitre, whom the Yankees traded to Milwaukee during Spring Training and then reaquired last month after the Brewers designated him for assignment. Apparently, Mitre is well trained, should shit go down: “Long story short, I grew up fighting,” he told the paper of his childhood in Tijuana. “My dad got tired of me coming home, shirt ripped, always bloody. So he put me into martial arts — Chinese Kempo, boxing, wrestling. I have a full, well-rounded education.” That said, Mitre hasn’t been in a fight since high school and has never gotten to run in from the bullpen during a brawl. (Mitre actually started the game against Toronto in 2009 in which the Yanks and Jays fought, but he’d been lifted from the game innings earlier.)
As we just saw this man serve up a run to the Toronto Blue Jays in the 8th inning (making the score 7-1), he has made everyone aware that “The Experience” is still in effect. We might be waiting for a fight that may never happen, and for all we know..he could have beaten up some whimpy kid in his high school days.

Yankees television play-by-play broadcaster, Michael Kay was at Madison Square Garden tonight decked out in full New York Rangers gear after losing a friendly bet to Don La Greca.
Kay lost a bet with Don (his radio partner on 1050 ESPN Radio), and his punishment was to attend a New York Rangers game in full uniform. If Kay had won the bet, Don would’ve had to attend a New York Yankees game in a Yankees jersey and batting helmet. Kay was sitting in Sec. 62 with La Greca. Al Trautwig interviewed Michael in the stands. Trautwig said, “So, do you feel like a loser?” Kay responded, “Oh, I am a loser. I don’t feel like one.”
Trautwig: “So, dressed as a Ranger, you feel like a loser?” Kay: “No, dressed in a full Ranger uniform and not being on the ice. Are you trying to trap me, Al?”
The real question is…how did these guys manage to come up with a helmet big enough for his gigantic head? (more…)

Charlie Sheen is putting on a show for the ages. He’s been captivating audiences with his bizarre ranting about warlocks, trolls and “winning.” I find it all hysterical. In his latest video, he dons a Yankees warm-up sweatshirt, so I thought he deserved a plug on the blog just for that. This is the same guy who owns Babe Ruth’s 1927 World Series ring, and has a Yankees baseball card. Winning!
