iS JETER STiLL HUNGRY?
"UPDATED OCT. 23, 2007- BECONING ON WORLD SERIES EVE
WITH YOUR COMMENTARY BELOW"
I dont know? But to me Derek Jeter Mr.Yankee-Mr.Clutch does NOT look like the Jeter of old of younger years- hungry , determined like he did in 1996-2000 .
I know it isn't popular to critisize "our" Captain, but if you were watching the ALDS against the Indians he had a big sh*t eating grin top of the ninth, with the Yankees about to be eliminated like he hadn't a care in the world. OK OK , I know it isn't that serious it isn't life or death "it's just a game" but show some kind of determination!!!!'
People will Blame Joe "Yankees manager Joe Torre" or even grossly overpaid A-Rod,
""than again everybody in MLB is grossly overpaid to me!""
Yes they'll blame A-ROD who was CLUTCH, along side Posdada whom also was clutch all year long! , Or they'll even blame the pitching staff or choices , or they'll say the ball didn't bounce our way or we got "flea-bitten" Or it was an Omen --> Joba getting attacked by insects on Jacob's Field mound throwing a wild pitch , that cost us a game
But from what, I seen all year long regaudless of the numbers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jeter DID NOT HAVE A TYPICAL JETER YEAR from April to October.
Not only the multiple double plays he hit into in the divisional series with runners in scoring position! But all year long!
Is Jeter really so much better than Detroits Carlos Guillén who is very hungry or Khalil Greene
Now I'm not saying we have to get rid of Jeter.
YES he has lost a step in his range.
It's Just I'm concerned I didn't see that fire. I saw back in the "95 to 01" years.That fire I have seen in the past? and that is bothersome!
SHOULD JOE GO OR STAY?
TO BE CONTINUED.....
YOU MEAN TO TELL ME IT TOOK THIS BUNCH THAT LONG TO DECIDE THE FATE OF MLB'S MOST WINNIGEST MANAGER OVER THE LAST 15 YEARS? AND...............You mean to tell me the reason the yankees didn't make the world series or win it in 7 years is all Joe Torre's fault? These younger underpaid players are hungrier! Take for instance--> "Cleveland"
It was proven with the Yankee's themselves when they bought up the farm "Joba Chamberlain, Melky Cabrera , Shellson Duncan etc.etc." which basically saved there season!
You also read reports about Derek Jeter's wild weekend in South Beach in the N.Y. Daily News. It makes you wonder is he still "hungry" like he was back in 1997 when it was only about baseball?
.............here is some intresting commentry on the entire situation buy other journalist -->
THE FANS SPEAK OUT!
