Jeter wouldn’t have done it
A Red Sox fan said that to me. “Derek Jeta wouldn’t a done that!”. He said it with that Boston accent too! That’s what he said about Alex Rodriguez trying to knock the ball out of Bronson Arroyos’ hand.
When A-rod knocked the ball out of Arroyo’s hand in the 8th inning of the sixth game of the ALCS, it was I think, a sign, that these Yankees are not Derek’s Yankees of the 90’s.
I had heard Jeter make that comment a couple of times when asked to compare the Yankees of the 90’s with “these” Yankees.
The Yankees of the 90’s. Those Yankees had a different mindset. Quietly play some of the best, most consistent baseball you can and win championships. These Yankees have not learned to do that yet. Joe Torre needs to get busy.
This Yankee fan knows that these Yankees, won’t be those Yankees, until They’re back to being a class act team.
