Trevor gets 600! It's been a rough year, but he's a good egg and made a future closer out of Axford. Glad to see him reach his milestone.

I'll be rocking my track jacket to work tomorrow.

That's nothing to joke about. I've seen two people get **** on at my stop in the past month.

And I laughed. So mine's coming.

I have insider information that Gargamel was ejected by the umpire at the Milwaukee game for telling Yadier Molina he looks like a lesbian.
My reports say that he was drinking Kool-Aid all game long.

Hi, guys! Fancy meeting yall here!
RH, Gargamel and Fbaezer dive under the table, but it is too late.
So, are yall going to play in my A2K NFL Pickum game?
The season starts Thursday night with what could be an awesome game between the Vikings and the Saints.
The evil Brit, Spendius, is back to defend his crown.

Be that way. Screw you all.
Spendius is already starting to hurl insults from his bar stool in the pub there in GB. But what do yall care?
You are still talking about baseball. That is so like, you know, yesterday.
Football. NFL football. It starts tomorrow.
A fan gets ejected from a game by an ump for dissing a player? Get a life.
Soon the snow will fall in places like Buffalo and drunken guys will be in the stands with big letters painted across their bare chests. Sure, they may have inadvertently rearranged themselves such that it spells "UFAFOLB" but they will not get ejected from the stadium.

The Indians and the Angels tied at 3 going into the bottom of the 16th. LA still in the game despite getting only 5 hits so far.

As opposed to a sport where a player shoots himself in the leg with a gun? Yep. Those football players are the brightest of the sports world.

Oh yeah! Wake me when Favre makes his 50th retirement speech next year.

@Region Philbis,
lidge is ok if you don't watch him pitch.

I like Madson when lidge falters.

I give an outside shot to Frisco. (mostly hoping here)

What do y'all think? Is Jeter still the consummate professional he's often made out to be, or is he getting special treatment as always because he's so lovable?

I definitely think the general tenor of the commentary would be quite different if it'd been A-Rod who'd done it. Not that there's anything wrong with that, necessarily; both players have thoroughly earned their respective reputations, I think, so maybe they're rightly reaping what they've sown.

@Shapeless,
His peers have weighed in. The ploy was proper and common.

@panzade,
Proper and common--no arguments there. "Remarkable," to quote Tim McCarver--that's a little funnier to me. Not because it's wrong but because there's something amusing about the efforts being made to preserve the legacy of Jeter's professionalism (of which I am a great admirer!). I can see why commentators would defend his acting job: it's part of the game. But expressly praising him for it is pretty funny to me.

@Shapeless,

i think jeter's overall body of work is exemplary, so a little bump in the road like that cannot tarnish it.

the only thing in the way of a first ballot HOF induction is a failed PED test.
don't see that happening...
