Vote’s in! Derek Jeter Rocks!

You can always count on Yankee fans to come to the rescue of their Team Captain, but I was surprised at the number of baseball fans in general, not just Yankee fans, who agree with Jeter’s current acting performance as being not only an accepted practice in baseball, but generally gamesmanship at its best.   I received twice as many emails and comments on this post than I have in all the others combined, and the response was overwhelmingly in favor of an Emmy for Derek!   Just goes to show I might have an opinion, but it doesn’t  mean it’s a popular opinion!   And that’s okay folks.  I’ve always said, if  it’s written, it’s real and boy did you write!

Here’s some of the opinions expressed on the subject.  This response was from “thetickr.com” sports blog and most closely represents your opinions here at GFBB!

  4. sherwooddesigns answered: If the average fan knew (shoot) about the game other than the Yankees, they’d realize this is just baseball. Stop perpetuating the media bias!
  5. bobble-head answered: It’s Derek Jeter, of COURSE it’s brilliant baseball. Anybody else, and they’re rotten scum. Sarcasm aside…it was really lame.

  33. nickmendez answered: It’s ridiculous to call this anything other than gamesmanship. Just like when a catcher frames a strike.    “GFBB Note:  Really?”      WE PLAY TO WIN THE GAME.
