Yankees 1998 reunion was missing Derek Jeter and completely ignored Joe Girardi

[Insert jokes concerning loyalty of the Steinbrenners/the question as for what team Jeter really is working for here]

The 1998 New York Yankees reunited at Yankee Stadium Saturday to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their World Series championship.

Well, most of the 1998 Yankees reunited. There were a few notable absences, including former captain Derek Jeter and former catcher-turned-manager Joe Girardi.

How the Yankees handled those absences may have been the most notable takeaway from the event. A recorded message from Jeter was played to explain his absence, while Girardi was reportedly completely ignored throughout the ceremony.

A recorded message from Jeter was played to explain his absence

"I am hard at work preparing next winter's gift basket of J.T. Realmuto in exchange for Sonny Gray and a couple more exciting Yankees minor league top prospects who will never sniff AAA, much less make The Show. Thanks, Ca$h Man!"

JT Realmuto would make a fine Yankee. He should be so lucky.

Give Jetes credit: He didn't tape a eulogy for Bob Shepherd's funeral.

BUMP

A Jeter post deserves a little more RESP2CT.

The most notable takeaway was that so many of the 1998 Yankees missed Bella Raine Jeter's first birthday party.

Shows how much things have changed in 20 years that back in 1998 the World Series ended in August.

Blame YAnkees-Red Sox games for extending the season.
