Reports of Derek Jeter’s fatness were greatly exaggerated

Dec 3, 2012, 10:18 AM EDT


On Friday Derek Jeter appeared to not be in The Best Shape of His Life. Yesterday he hung out with Harold Reynolds, and he looks much skinnier.

He’s clearly the beneficiary of the most intense two-day workout ever devised.

Or, possibly, that was a bad picture of the guy last week. For now I’m going with an insane, captainly workout which shows Jeter’s drive and determination.

You listening A-Rod? Gosh.

    So which picture was altered?

    If you look closely, you can see what appears to be a gift basket in the back seat of Reynolds’ vhehicle.

      Hey! Hey now! Okay…that shit was funny lol.

      Well he did agree to wear an unflattering down vest to offset Derek’s short sleeves and lean upper body. Also, I would not have guessed that HR and DJ were that different in height.

    It’s so easy for the paparazzi to snap a shitload of photos in rapid succession, and pick out a still frame where someone may look bloated (or drunk, or high) from a given angle.

    Total non-issue. Jeter is a consummate professional.

      So true, Lindsay Lohan.

      Agreed. The Yankees and Jeter may be full of themselves, but Jeter has never let himself go physically. Even the most vitriolic Yankee-hater knows he’s a real professional.

    Just a bad angle on the photo. When you lean forward, the bottom of your t-shirt tends to move forward as much as possible.

    I’m kind of surprised no one has suggested he might be sucking it in.

    Pumping that Rolex on his wrist has kept his arms in shape.
