Former Yankees assistant equipment manager Paul Priore was fired in 1997. He says the team let him go because he is HIV-positive; the Yankees, and New York state courts, disagree. Now the seamy tell-all Priore threatened to write has found its way to print (albeit through self-publishing), and co-author Gary Toushek is spamming the world with this bizarre video explaning why Priore’s outlandish claims are totally legit.
About those claims! Here are some things Paul Priore says he witnessed, as outlined amongst the 500-some pages of Abused By The New York Yankees and according to the book’s website and this review:
Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada engaged in sexual relations in the clubhouse sauna at the end of their first season with the team. Jeter and Posada then allowed Priore to perform oral sex on them in order to keep him quiet.
George Steinbrenner spied on players using secret security cameras in the clubhouse, and was actively involved in the Iran-Contra Affair.
Outfielder Gerald Williams had sex with an underage concession stand worker in a storage closet.
Cecil Fielder played drunk on vodka, and Darryl Strawberry drank whisky during games.
Bob Wickman, Jeff Nelson and Mariano Rivera tried to sexually assault him with a baseball bat.
Batboys created a market of forged autographs on Yankees memorabilia.
Did Jorge at least get a gift basket?

Who says St. Jeter can’t move left?
It’s not the first time Obama and [Las Vegas Sun publisher] Greenspun have hung out. Obama kicked off the fundraiser recalling a trip to Nevada last November when he and Greenspun golfed with former Yankees great Derek Jeter.
“He and Derek Jeter stole money from me at Shadow Creek,” Obama said of Greenspun, referring to the course in North Las Vegas. “It was clearly a set up, because when we got to the practice range, he was shanking balls everywhere. I said, ‘You play golf Derek?’ And he said, ‘I just started two weeks ago.’”
They gave Jeter 30 strokes, Obama said, but he realized that was a mistake as soon as they were on the first hole. Jeter crushed him, he said.
“We had to take a picture of me handing Derek Jeter money at the end of the game. Despite that, Brian is a great friend.”

I hope he doesn’t ask the same thing before settling on the appropriate gift basket.
The story, written by S.L. Price, says that in one of their final face-to-face meetings, Jeter asked the GM, “Who would you rather have playing shortstop this year than me?”
Cashman replied, “Do you really want me to answer that?” Given the go-ahead, Cashman named Tulowitzki, then a star with the Colorado Rockies, and was prepared to rattle off a list of others, the story said. Cashman also added, “We’re not paying extra money for popularity. We’re paying for performance.”

Is Jetes still trying to prove that he’s not paying for sex?
Derek Jeter and his supermodel girlfriend Hannah Davis decided to enjoy their Italian vacation by going Dutch.
Jeter — who made hundreds of millions playing for the Yankees — and Davis — who pulls in about $5 million a year modeling — made out and ate pizza near the Spanish Steps in Rome. Then they asked to split the bill, each paying with their AmEx Black Cards (available to those who charge more than $250,000 per year!).

It’s not easy following a legend.
When a player is struggling at the plate, he can go in the batting cage and tinker with his swing. If he is struggling in the field, he can take more ground balls. But how does a player improve his awareness?
“You have to play,” Girardi said. “You can’t simulate game speed and game conditions. As much as you try, you just can’t do it. They’ll work on a time clock sometimes with runners, and having to go to first base, but it’s not really the same. That’s the hard part. The only way to get better is to play.”
