Jeter: Heel feels “great”

Posted by: Josh Thomson - Posted in Misc on Jun 20, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Derek Jeter wore that bemused look before as he was peppered with questions about the heel injury that forced him out of yesterday’s game. He said it occurred as he tried to leg out and infield single.

Jeter said the heel felt “great” and that he wasn’t the one who decided he sat Saturday. “It’s entirely on him,” Jeter said, speaking about Joe Girardi.

Jeter was to be evaluated by the trainers this morning. Unless he hears something unusual from them, Girardi expects Jeter will be fine.

“I asked him how he felt (today) and he said he felt good,” Girardi said. “So he’s in there.”

    Certainly good news. Hopefully he can start getting on base on a regular basis.

    I am also hoping for a big game from our big lefty.

    I had a fitful sleep, more in anticipation of Italy v. New Zealand than the Yankee game, but I did have a dream in which an ex-girlfriend happily told me that the Yanks were already down 7-0 in the first inning.

    There should be no correlation between that dream and the game, thankfully.

    So did the Italian dive to get that penalty kick? The English and Scottish commentators didn’t come out and say it, but they did suggest that he ‘went down easily’ and ‘made the most of it’.

    Hmmmmm.

    “So did the Italian dive to get that penalty kick? The English and Scottish commentators didn?t come out and say it, but they did suggest that he ?went down easily? and ?made the most of …”

    I’m not huge on the rules – but I can tell you my facebook exploded with calls of “diving” after it happened, so I think probably

    Nick in SF….I played Italy laying 1 & the overs at 2.5

    Pat M.

    Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner last night–Wifii signal disappears sporadically.

    Did you catch my post?

    If not, I can find it and repost.

    Happy Fathers Day everyone! :)

  6. igotid88 June 20th, 2010 at 11:40 am

    let’s just hope he works the count a little

  7. Pat M. June 20th, 2010 at 11:41 am

    Bret I did……So, Oatmeal is out ????

  8. Nick in SF in Larkspur June 20th, 2010 at 11:42 am

    Pat M, I’m hoping a late goal for the Forza Azzurri will help you out…. very tense…

  9. Bret the Hitman June 20th, 2010 at 11:43 am

    Oatmeal strangles your metabolism because of the gluten.

    It’s a favorite of powerlifters for that reason.

    They look to add bulk and stunt their metabolism.

  10. RonH June 20th, 2010 at 11:48 am

    Gotta love Jeter. He knows the team needs him and just wants to play everyday!

    Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!

  11. AL Duque June 20th, 2010 at 11:50 am

    Jeter would say that he´s Ok even if his leg is broken!

  12. Nick in SF in Larkspur June 20th, 2010 at 11:51 am

    So it’s all going to come down to the Sovakia match for the Forza Azzurri… yikes.

  13. Nick in SF in Larkspur June 20th, 2010 at 11:54 am

    A 1-1 draw vs. Italy is the greatest result in New Zealand football history?

    Lifts a whole nation?

    Well how about that.

  14. Pat M. June 20th, 2010 at 11:58 am

    Well that didn’t go as planned ………Brazil is a huge favorite over the Ivory Coast……I don’t like playing catch up in soccer

  15. pat June 20th, 2010 at 11:58 am

    jonmorosi Porcello, nearly AL ROY last year, sent to Toledo. Not an easy game, folks. #Tigers may need to trade for starter to hang with #Twins. #MLB

  16. Nick in SF in Larkspur June 20th, 2010 at 12:02 pm

    It’s a long tourney, Pat M, don’t try to get it all back on the Brazil match.

  17. Nick in SF in Larkspur June 20th, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    “The flightless bird, the Kiwi, has taken flight today.”

    Good grief.

  18. jeter's lazy at bats hurt the team!! June 20th, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    Bold prediction Jeter, won’t take more than 3 pitches at any at bat, unless it’s the final out!

    1st at bat 1-2 pitches out!

    While the Mets will make CC throw many pitches, per at bat, Jeter will gift Santana with a low pitch count. Santana pitch count will always be lower than CC’s today.

    Why does he do this, because many pitcher throw first pitch strikes to get ahead on the count, and they pitch to contact, to induce batters to swing. Jeter swings and is an automatic out 1st pitch out.

  19. Dassit - HUP HOLLAND June 20th, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    Nick, I heard New Zealand only got about 25 professional football players haha. Don’t even have a professional league.

  20. ron June 20th, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    Soccer is so boring. Another 1-1 or 0-0 tie? A tie.• boring gift for dad and boring in soccer, a sport we Americans play as secondary to our favorite sport of one of the big league sports.

  21. Pat M. June 20th, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    Nick in SF….Yanks are only -170, so that’s where i’m going, along with The Twins + 190

  22. Elizabeth June 20th, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    The word “bemused” means “confused,” not “amused,” which is Derek’s default expression.

  23. Elizabeth June 20th, 2010 at 12:11 pm

    “Oatmeal strangles your metabolism because of the gluten.

    It’s a favorite of powerlifters for that reason.

    Oatmeal has a low-GI index, which is good for maintaining a steady blood sugar level, which is GOOD for your metabolism.

    ——————————————————————————————————

    The last decent game that Porcello pitched was the shutout against the Yankees. Maybe our guys put a jinx on him.

    Elizabeth,

    Gluten is not good for your metabolism.

  27. Bret the Hitman June 20th, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    Elizabeth,

    Human teeth aren’t designed to eat whole grains. That’s why we have to grind them down and process them during refinement. That stuff doesn’t belong in our digestive system.

  28. m June 20th, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    Did that Italian flop? Playing not to lose! Gotta love those draws.

    What?! They sent their top young pitcher to AAA? Is that even allowed?

  29. Bronx Jeers June 20th, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    Could today be the day that we finally solve the Subway sandwich commercial mystery?

    Who is the “who” that were supposed “to know” when both these great lefties claim that their sandwich is so big that ” it’s like beating you know who big”?

    Excellent question.

  31. Nick in SF in Larkspur June 20th, 2010 at 12:24 pm

    I do get that even getting a point was huge for the Kiwis… still it was annoying.

    I don’t even care about Italy, except now I do. :mad:

    At least they aren’t totally self-destructing like the French. They can still advance with a good showing vs. the Slovaks.

  32. m June 20th, 2010 at 12:24 pm

    As for Jeter’s heel, the way it sounded from Chad yesterday is that Girardi only found about it because Jeter was getting treatment. Girardi probably made an executive decision to give Jeter a day of rest in general and for the heel.

    Hope we get bad santa(na) today.

    Cervelli appreciates your support. ;)

  35. Nick in SF in Larkspur June 20th, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    m, the Forza Azzurri were not playing for the tie.

    They really needed the three points from this match — now they could easily finish 2nd in the group (undesirable) or not even make it out of the group (death).

  36. Prikash Abumuhammedalmadidiladoodeshna June 20th, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    Go Yankees!

  37. Nick in SF in Larkspur June 20th, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    Erin, I wasn’t even thinking about the Cervelli angle.

    Yes, as a PFOF, I am also supporting the Forza Azzurri.

    I wish they wouldn’t make it so hard. :oops:

  38. Joe from Long Island June 20th, 2010 at 12:30 pm

    Bret – interesting. I mean about the gluten thing.

    My family eats a lot of oatmeal, with an eye towards lowering serum cholesterol. I’ve not heard of the slowing metabolism issue before. Not that I’m disagreeing, but do you have any citation, reference, etc. on this so that I can learn more?

    Thanks in advance.

    SCOUT: THE YANKEES ARE OLD AND DONE

    http://www.newsday.com/sports/baseba…ider-1.1278117

    Quote:

    Speaking of concern, spoke with another team’s scout here who opined, “The Yankees are in trouble. Posada can’t catch anymore, and what do they do if Cervelli gets hurt? Montero isn’t ready.Romine doesn’t hit. Teixeira is pull happy and isn’t making the proper adjustments. He’s trying to hit every ball out here (at Yankee Stadium). Who knows what’s going to happen with A-Rod? ”
    The scout added that he liked Gardner better than Granderson – and Austin Jackson better than Granderson, to boot – and shared everyone else’s concerns about A.J. Burnett’s consistency issues. He spoke highly of CC Sabathia, Andy Pettitte, Phil Hughes and Javier Vazquez, as well as Robinson Cano and Nick Swisher.

    ———————

    and I agree with everything said here.

    Elizabeth, Yes. Jeter is always confused when reporters flock to his locker to ask about injuries. He doesn’t think there is anything worth talking about there.

    Joe,

    Yes I have a reference. I read textbooks on nutrition for fun. I just tried to post a link but the filter has snared it twice. I’ll keep trying.

    As far as cholesterol, I’ve read that high cholesterol isn’t the primary determinant of heart disease. It’s the oxidation of LDL.

    Oxidation of LDL is mostly caused by consumption of trans fats, hydrogenated oils and Omega-6 fats.

    Someone can be healthy if they consume high cholesterol foods like organic grass fed or flax seed fed chicken eggs or seafood as long as they don’t also consume high levels of fried foods and packaged/processed foods soaked in Omega-6 fats.

  47. The Philly Phitins June 20th, 2010 at 12:40 pm

    Philly Cheese steak isn’t meant to eat everyday, it like anything requires moderation.
    Like Pizza, Fries, Fried foods , Mac and Cheese etc. moderation not daily/weekly consumption.

  48. SJ44 June 20th, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    What a surprise, a troll agrees with a negative view of the Yankees.

    Shocking!

  49. Joe from Long Island June 20th, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    Bret, thanks for the followup.

    Yes, there’s a lot more to atherosclerosis than just serum cholesterol, as you noted. And we don’t know what we don’t know. That’s why lowering LDL, and getting a favorable HDL/cholesterol ratio, among other factors (like not smoking) are also very important.

    Why does that filter catch benign things like your references, yet let through trolls and twits? Wonder if Jeff the IT guy can fix that….

  50. Ray A June 21st, 2010 at 10:14 am

    Bret, you are clearly on the right track. I eat what is called the “Paleolithic diet” which consists of only vegetable carbohydrates and some animal protein. I am 71 years old and often leap tall buildings at a single bound… though I do admit that landing is somewhat painful.
    Anyway, keep writing about what you learn. You may do some other readers a great favor.
