Derek Jeter has something to say after all

What’s gotten into Derek Jeter these days?

Like fellow Nike salesmen Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan, Jeter always managed to keep himself above the fray, pitching the press only cliches and slices of humble pie.

Then yesterday he stood up straight and delivered a ringing defense of Joe Torre (see previous post). If there was a podium in the clubhouse, Jeter would have pounded his fist on it.

Now we get word that Jeter sent a supportive letter to the Rutgers women’s basketball team in the wake of the Imus mess.

We can only imagine what’s next. But Derek Jeter with a conscience, we like it.
