Blah Blah Derek Jeter Blah Dismissive Wank


Pictured: Relevant

As Papa Bear mentioned earlier, Derek Jeter is heading to the DL. Quick, press release!

The New York Yankees announced Tuesday night that Jeter has been placed on the disabled list due to the Grade 1 strain of the right calf he suffered in the fifth inning of Monday night’s loss to the Cleveland Indians.

Sheesh, Grade 1? What a pussy.

The decision was made after a meeting with Jeter, manager Joe Girardi, general manager Brian Cashman and team doctor Chris Ahmad about an hour before Tuesday’s game with theTexas Rangers, but Jeter made it clear in a pregame news conference that he was not on board with heading to the DL for the first time since 2003.

“Are you joking me? I’ve got to spend time with Minka Kelly and sit around doing nothing while living in the greatest city in the world for 15 days in beautiful June?”, he said.

Yankees new plans, after the jump.

Jeter is on the DL for the first time since he suffered a dislocated left shoulder on Opening Night 2003, an injury that cost him the first 36 games of the season. Eduardo Nunez replaced Jeter in Tuesday’s lineup and Ramiro Pena was called up from Triple-A Scranton to fill Jeter’s spot on the roster. In Jeter’s absence, Brett Gardnerwill inherit the leadoff spot in the Yankees batting order.

“Nunie’s gonna have a chance to step up here,” Girardi said. “He’s gonna get a chance to play every day, which he hasn’t gotten a chance to do, and we’ll see how he does.”

In other words, swing away kid, what you do is irrelevant. What really sucks about this is we were like, what, a fortnight away from this guy getting hit number 3,000 and hopefully retiring soon thereafter. Now? Not only is it going to take longer for him to get the hit, but while he’s gone it’s all we are going to hear about on the YES network. I can hear Susan Waldman now “You know I talked with Derek Jeter before the game and he really felt like if he was playing in these 15 games that he is missing, he definitely would probably have the hit, but since he isn’t playing in these 15 games, he probably will not be getting his 3,000th hit, back to you John.” And I know what you’re saying. Susan does the radio games not TV, and she doesn’t do the sideline she sits in the booth. IT DOESN’T MATTER. NONE OF IT MATTERS. WE HAVE TO GO BACK. KATE! WE HAVE TO GO BACK.

I know, I know, you came here for the Minka Kelly. Just leave the money on the dresser.
