Derek Jeter runs outside

Jun 27, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

I guess that headline is not the most informative thing ever. But it is evocative. I picture him running with joy, music swelling, the wind whipping his hair– well, he doesn’t have much hair anymore, but you get the idea. He’s free, you see. Free as a bird and the wind and …


To be clear: this is a good development. Working hard to come back and being eager to play is only bad when A-Rod does it.

    Was his stuffed tiger running alongside him as they play some Calvinball?

    Derek should just STFU to reporters.

    • fanofevilempire - Jun 27, 2013 at 5:21 PM

      You Met fans are very rude, by the way DJ is the face of the Yankees, so
      how about you stfu!

      • bfunk1978 - Jul 8, 2013 at 9:58 AM

        I think you missed the humor.

    Also, probably every Yankees injury report from now on will include the disclaimer that they don’t know when they’ll start rehab games.

  5. yahmule - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:08 PM

    But can he run between the tackles? A True Yankee could…

      If he was actually running to the toilet, his destination would be “hush hush” or in more practical terms the correct phrase is “flush flush”.

  7. specialkindofstupid - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:10 PM

    Yawn. Wake me when Jeter is running with the bulls in Pamplona. Then we’ll know he’s really ready for rehab games.

  8. jwbiii - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:18 PM

    This is good. It would suck if could only play in games in Toronto and Tampa Bay.

    • indaburg - Jun 27, 2013 at 4:55 PM

      Well done. Although, I wouldn’t mind. He can come DH for the Rays, live in his house in Tampa… Hmmm…

      There goes your NASCAR career…

    • professormaddog31 - Jun 27, 2013 at 3:07 PM

      Oh, if only Jeter were announcing his retirement, we could offer a eu-googly for his career.

    It’s bad when A Rod does it because the team and the fans are sick of him being an expensive embarrassment and no one wants to see him make 25 million a year to be an average player whose hips are shot.

    • churchoftheperpetuallyoutraged - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:39 PM

      25 million a year to be an average player whose hips are shot.

      Since ’09

      Arod – 123 OPS+, .368 wOBA, 126 wRC+
      Jeter – 107 OPS+, .345 wOBA, 111 wRC+

      I know the player I’m more looking forward to seeing back on the field. Apparently you, and many others, want the worse one

      • indaburg - Jun 27, 2013 at 4:52 PM

        Arod – unpopular
        Derek Jeter – popular

        Those are the only two stats that matter in most people’s eyes.

      • micknangold - Jun 27, 2013 at 5:52 PM

        I’m talking about A Rod right now, not 4 years ago obviously. Right now his hips are shot. And you’re not a Yankee fan if you want A Rod on the field more than Jeter. How dare you disrespect the Captain.

    • shaggylocks - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:41 PM

      If only there were some way to predict his natural and entirely predicable decline in abilities when the Yankees signed him through 2017! If only!

  11. ditto65 - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:22 PM

    How dare he?! I received no, and I mean NO, notification from the Yankees medical staff that Derek Jeter Could run inside, much less outside.

    The next post is probably going to inform us of the scissors he is carrying. Dude is crazy!

    my roomate’s mother-in-law makes $70 an hour on the laptop. She has been laid off for 8 months but last month her ine was $18584 just workinggo to this site home tab for more detail—>>>

    • proudlycanadian - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:39 PM

      It only costs Jeter a signed baseball to get laid. Your room mate’s mother-in-law charges too much.

    • chip56 - Jun 27, 2013 at 3:38 PM

      you have a roommate who has a mother-in-law? So you live with someone and that person’s wife? What the hell kinda set up is that?

      • ditto65 - Jun 27, 2013 at 4:30 PM

        Depends on what she looks like.

  13. turdfurgerson68 - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:35 PM

    Its the end of June and no jeter, a-roid, or teixiera.

    Wirh Riveria retiring and the aforementioned cats above soon to be retired the Yankees gonna look odd in say 2015.

  14. Old Gator - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:36 PM

    When I read that headline I had this image of him running naked out the door of his penthouse building in Manhattan and heading up the street to cheers and applause.

    • nbjays - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:57 PM

      Cue the “Chariots of Fire” theme music…

    • jerseygirl57 - Jun 27, 2013 at 3:43 PM

      Thank you for the image, Old Gator. You just made my afternoon at work much more enjoyable with that image.

    • indaburg - Jun 27, 2013 at 4:53 PM

      You have a vivid imagination, OG.

  15. chip56 - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:38 PM

    I’m sorry I got distracted by Craig making a joke about someone else balding.

    • yahmule - Jun 27, 2013 at 2:45 PM

      Knew this was coming, didn’t know when.

      • chip56 - Jun 27, 2013 at 3:36 PM

        It’s like Mariano’s cutter – you know it’s coming and there’s nothing you can do about it anyway.

      • yahmule - Jun 27, 2013 at 8:59 PM

        I combat my male pattern baldness by growing my hair as long as Fabio.

    • chip56 - Jun 27, 2013 at 3:37 PM

      Who gave that a thumb’s down? Seriously people if you can’t make fun of a bald dude who gave up the legal profession to live in his mom’s basement blogging then who can you make fun of?

  16. mazblast - Jun 27, 2013 at 4:16 PM

    Derek Jeter runs outside.

    Then, when he sees there’s no one there to take pictures of him ACTUALLY STANDING STILL, he gets all pouty and runs back inside to call Brian Cashman–“Brian, they’re not paying enough attention to MEMEMEMEME.”

  17. johnholly1039 - Jun 27, 2013 at 5:04 PM

    Does every damn article have to include Rodriguez in some way? Jesus, Craig.

  18. dcarroll73 - Jun 27, 2013 at 5:08 PM

    For some reason this headline conjures up an image (apologies to Creedence Clearwater Revival but we need their music) of “Run Through the Jonquils”.

    • dcarroll73 - Jun 27, 2013 at 5:11 PM

      Of course if it were A-rod running, it would be, “Cashman cries, ‘Take Aim!’
