Watch Derek Jeter tell Joe Buck to get the heck out of the clubhouse

I defended Fox a few minutes ago and I stand by the defense. TV is harder than you think and while an AWFUL lot of the stuff that surrounds the game is fluff at best, annoying and assaulting at worst, no one ever died because of poor sports programming decisions.

But it is fun to point and laugh sometimes. Like at this bit before the game last night when Joe Buck sauntered into the American League Clubhouse and acted like he owned the place. Watch as Miguel Cabrera, Mike Trout and Derek Jeter look at him with “really, dude?” expressions. Then watch as Jeter tells him to get the heck out of there, they have a game to play:

Fox has baseball rights for years and years so it’s not likely to change. But if someone ever wanted to turn baseball broadcasts into stripped-down affairs that focused on, you know, the baseball game and focused less on “covering the living hell out of this thing in an effort to both justify and glorify our access,” that’d be swell.

    Buck might be a jerk but there is no reason to be rude.

      Before you go barging into the clubhouse you may want to warn the players. I agree with Jeter.

    Beginning to think that Fox Network should change the spelling of their name.  The correct word contains a ‘u’, a ‘c’, and a ‘k’.

    Check out this Derek Jeter, tipping your cap salute freestyle rap. It’s actually really good…I don’t know who this guy is but saw it and wanted to share it. One of the best I’ve heard…

    That was awesome, didn’t think it was possible to have any more respect for Jeter than I already did.
