Townsend (BLS): No one is buying Derek Jeter’s hole-in-one video

DER-EK CHEAT-ER (clap, clap, clap, clap, clap)...

The video in question was posted by Jeter’s sister, Sharlee, who is also the president of his Turn 2 Foundation. It’s a charity event, so everything they’re doing is ultimately for a good cause, but it’s difficult to get past what appears to be a staged event. ...

Based on the smirk on Jeter’s face before he even tees off, he was either very confident or he knew they were pranking the masses. We’ll go with that latter, especially since there’s no real evidence the ball went in the cup. In fact, we’re not even sure the ball landed before the crowd erupted into cheers. If so, then maybe he knocked it in on the fly.

This isn’t to say Derek Jeter didn’t hit a hole-in-one on Friday, or that he’s not capable. But this also isn’t to say that’s he not capable of having a little harmless fun at our expense while drawing more attention to his tournament and his foundation.

Yankees rejected Expos’ crazy Derek Jeter trade

According to a report from the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo, then-Montreal Expos owner Jeffrey Loria wanted Derek Jeter so bad that he gave his general manager, Jim Beattie, free reign to offer everything the team had.

So, the report said, Beattie offered Yankees general manager Brian Cashman a crazy package: Pedro Martinez and Vladimir Guerrero. Obviously, Cashman rejected it.

“I can’t trade Derek Jeter,” Cashman said, according to the report.

The report didn’t say which year the deal was proposed.
