Derek Jeter was in the clubhouse this morning. He said he will not speak to the media until tomorrow. I’m sure this will lead to some writers ripping Jeter for not supporting A-Rod.
I find that silly. These are well-paid adults. The team captain isn’t in charge of making everybody feel good about themselves. People act like the Yankees are a high school football team.
The media is out in force today. The clubhouse was full of people who couldn’t pick Joba Chamberlain out of a lineup. A few will linger around for a few days but eventually they’ll go away. Don’t forget, A-Rod will leave camp for the WBC on March 2.
To try and preserve some of my sanity, I’m going to go watch The Wanger throw his bullpen now.
