It’s unclear whether Derek Jeter reads HardballTalk

Mixed signals from the Captain at his press conference today:

“This has nothing to do with how I feel physically. I feel great. Everyone comes to spring training and says I’m in the greatest shape of my life. I don’t know how you measure that.”

On the one hand, he is well-aware of the BSOHL meme. On the other hand, not knowing how one measures that means that he doesn’t read all of our BSOHL posts which clearly explain how that determination is made.

Maybe once he’s retired he can catch up on all of the HBT posts from the past few years.

      Yankee HOF’er # 53, after #42 becomes #52

    Craig if you had one question to ask the Jeets, would it be:

    1) Do you read our blog?

    2) Why did you never call me?

      Sorry, I meant to capitalize The in The Jeets. Jeets please forgive me if you read this.

        no gift basket for you!

    Just don’t change the morning gift baskets. Cue The Imperial March…

    Why would you think Derek Jeter would read your piddling little blog? He’s busy. It’s spring training. This isnt the off-season. He has tons to do. What kind of ego man do you have. Good lord.

      Derek, lay off. He’s just trying to make a living like you.

      you need a hug.

      Well said alang3131982, he doesn’t have to read this stuff, he plays the game and has inside knowledge nobody on here will ever have, end of story

    I bet you’ll know if you wake up one day and there’s a gift basket waiting for you.

      Craig (said like Troy from MTS3K’s blasting of Final Sacrifice): JEEEEEETTTSSSSSSSS

    Ok, which one of you Yankees homers is it? Confess. We’re going to scrutinize all handles with “DJ” (or variants thereof) and “Captain” (or variants thereof) in it!

      plot twist: it’s actually the Blue Jays guy

      • cur'68 - Feb 19, 2014 at 7:14 PM

        If you mean me or proudlycanadian, I assure you neither of us is Jeets. If its anyone around here it is someone with little conversational range, who jumps to conclusions wether they need to or not, and who never seems to make anyone mad (I assure you, that last PROVES its not me or PC).

      • asimonetti88 - Feb 20, 2014 at 12:52 AM

        I think he means dirtyharry
