Derek Jeter headed back to DL

To quote Cosloy…“Some guys will do anything to avoid A-Rod.”

While Alex Rodriguez is on the way into the New York Yankees lineup, Derek Jeter is again on the way out.

The 39-year-old Jeter is headed back to the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 1 strain of his right calf. Jeter has only played in five games this season because of a twice-fractured right ankle, a quad strain and a calf injury. On Sunday, Jeter described his season as a “nightmare.”

Jeter has had a calf injury before. In 2011, he missed three weeks prior to picking up his 3,000th career hit. Jeter, whose credo is either you are playing or you’re hurt, sounded down on Sunday.

“It’s been terrible,” Jeter said on Sunday. “It’s been like a nightmare. The whole season has been a nightmare. I wish that wasn’t the case and we were sitting here talking about something besides another injury. We’ll see what happens. I have no idea.”

Jeter is hitting .211 with one home run and two RBIs. He said Sunday the injury has been impacting his play.

“It feels like you were hit with a ball or something,” he said. “It’s like a deep bruise, maybe. That’s the best way to put it. I don’t know how else to describe it.”

How often does Jeter news get second billing?
   2. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: August 05, 2013 at 06:17 PM (#4513615)
Ever since MLB started focusing on steroids, Derek Jeter's ability to stay healthy has really decreased.

Who plays more games for the 2013 Yankees: Jeter (currently at 5) or A-Rod?
   4. JE (Jason) Posted: August 05, 2013 at 06:25 PM (#4513628)
Heck, that's easy. As I asked earlier, does A-Rod play more games than Youk?

Nelson Muntz...paging Nelson Muntz.

Not much of a credo.

If the Rod could just go nuts and lead the Yanks to a wild card while Jeter sulks on the sidelines like Achilles........c'mon, it'd be wonderful to see how the baseball media handled it.....

but probably he'd just go 0-3 with a walk in a losing effort and get called a choker.
   8. Blastin Posted: August 05, 2013 at 07:35 PM (#4513684)
As a Yankee fan, I would absolutely love it if A-Rod dominates right up until the end of the season, then the appeal comes down, and Jeter comes back for the WC play-in... and they lose and Jeter misses the GW dribbler up the middle.

Seriously. That would make the insane media poop itself, and there's nothing better than making the media look silly.
   9. Koot Posted: August 05, 2013 at 07:47 PM (#4513698)
I hope A-Rod does it all while hitting number two in the line up too.
   10. Hank G. Posted: August 05, 2013 at 08:28 PM (#4513742)
A-Rod said that his season was a nightmare too!

My credo is I'm always working, or home sick, or enjoying a weekend, vacation or government holiday.

ARod, with nothing to lose, is clearly roiding to the gills in his desperate, narcissistic need to win the Yankees fans' hearts while simultaneously trying to destroy baseball.

See how easy that is. The media won't even blink.
   13. Walt Davis Posted: August 05, 2013 at 10:10 PM (#4513890)
I see that Pettitte has clearly expressed the disgust that all True Yankees feel for ARod by giving up 7 runs in 2 innings.

According to Harold Reynolds...Pettitte was probably bothered by the A-Rod media onslaught upsetting his daily pattern. Or someshit.

nope--Pettite was bothered by that fact that Derek Jeter was bothered--it was too much for him

Not much of a credo.
Let's be fair. That's not actually Jeter's credo. According to him, his credo is the much more impressive "If you're hurt, you're not playing, and if you're playing, you're not hurt."

If a nightmare is being 5 games out of the wildcard with 50 to play - what is life a as a Houston Astro?

Oh, wait - I'm thinking its a team game.

And thus did Jeter disprove the legend of the bloody sock.
   19. Walt Davis Posted: August 06, 2013 at 03:15 AM (#4514014)
I've got all my money tied up in gift basket futures ... does being on the DL give Jeter more time for giving or does the calf/quad injury cut down on his charitable activities?
   20. Walt Davis Posted: August 06, 2013 at 03:18 AM (#4514015)
Knock knock
Who's there?
Bosch
Bosch who?
Tony Bosch, how many Bosches do you know?
I don't think I'm supposed to talk to you
No, it's OK now, Bud's got my back
I dunno
And I've got this great cream ... just rub it where it hurts and you'll be back on the field in no time, stronger than ever
And this is legit?
I swear on a stack of hand-written diaries
   21. donlock Posted: August 06, 2013 at 09:17 AM (#4514086)
Maybe ARod could play Shortstop while Jeter 's out?
   22. jacksone (AKA It's OK...) Posted: August 06, 2013 at 09:47 AM (#4514104)
Pettite was bothered by seeing that little page-boy back in the club house, laboriously trying to lay out A-Rod's uniform while A-Rod was stomping his hooves, rearing his head, and mercilessly snapping a whip in the air over the attendant's head.
   23. Lassus Posted: August 06, 2013 at 11:21 AM (#4514187)
I'm not sure if I've already said this, but this A-Rod meme beating beaten endlessly like a dead horse is completely ruining the image of the centaur as an impressive mystical beast for me.

Time for some gryphon love, I'd say.

For the small part I have played, you are welcome. It has been a bit lame, are you suggesting a different tack?

I'd like to see all the A-Rod/centaur jokes reined in too.
   28. alilisd Posted: August 06, 2013 at 11:50 AM (#4514238)
Neigh, centaur jokes lap the rest.

I'm openly goofing off on the internet, or pretending to work while goofing off on the internet.

Jeter's new credo, "if I'm hurt you're paying me, if I'm feeling well enough to play, mehh we're a last place team and you're paying me anyways".
   32. Nasty Nate Posted: August 06, 2013 at 01:04 PM (#4514300)
I'd love for Jeter to limp to the finish line of his career with a 4th-place ballclub which is embroiled in weird A-Rod scandals. But he'll probably come back next year and be on a playoff team which included Jacoby Ellsbury being paid the erstwhile A-Rod money.
   33. Too Much Coffee Man Posted: August 06, 2013 at 02:33 PM (#4514386)
"I wish that wasn’t the case and we were sitting here talking about something besides another injury. "

These days, who would say that?
   34. The Chronicles of Reddick Posted: August 06, 2013 at 02:45 PM (#4514399)
Instead of a centaur, cant Arod be a satyr or is that more descriptive of Jeter?
   35. The Yankee Clapper Posted: August 06, 2013 at 04:12 PM (#4514501)
. . . Jacoby Ellsbury being paid the erstwhile A-Rod money.

Even Elsbury & his agent wouldn't believe that.
   36. Nasty Nate Posted: August 06, 2013 at 04:48 PM (#4514540)
Well, I didn't necessarily mean all the A-Rod money...
   37. bfan Posted: August 06, 2013 at 05:01 PM (#4514548)
Jeter has quitting money; he will still get laid daily by a complete stranger; he isn't catching Pete Rose. What is the point of trying to continue, Derek?
   38. The Yankee Clapper Posted: August 06, 2013 at 05:05 PM (#4514551)
The Yankees don't really need the A-Rod money to get well under the luxury tax threshold. Rivera, Pettitte, Youkilis, coming off the payroll, plus the reduced cost of Wells & Soriano, along with the lower cost of Jeter's option, saves ~ $75M.
