Derek Jeter Releases 2010 Guide to all his Press Answers

Today, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter released his 2010 guide to all his press answers. Its a useful tool members of the press can use for quotes throughout the 2010 season. Among some of the highlights are the following:

After a Win:

"I'm excited to win, but its one game."

After a Loss:

"We need to play better."

After an A-Rod controversy:

"He's our teammate."

Derek Jeter is pretty strict to the adherence of his quote guides. Last season a journalist was asking him questions, and he just told the guy a page number and walked away. The good news is, we already know exactly what Jeter will say in pretty much any situation next season. Here's to the 3 day countdown to meaningful Yankees baseball.

Yet another example of team-first thinking by Jeter.

Its true. Derek Jeter is the true professional.

Hahaha this is so true.

I still remember some interview from, God I don't even know when but the Yankees were in a bit of a skid (maybe 2007? early 2005?), when he said something like "We're just not playing well right now at all. We're playing like that part in Space Jam where the monster-aliens took away all their powers." He said it soooo non-chalantly, it was awesome.

The Captain speaks as the captain plays. Flawlessly.

I'm still waiting for Jeet to roll out the old Casey Stengel chestnut: "You can't win everyday; unless you get the pitching".
I bet most of you guys thought Yogi was the only Yankee prone to making profound, inadvertent statements.

Fernando Alejandro said...

Favorite Casey Stengel quote: "Son, we'd like to keep you around this season but we're going to try and win a pennant."

King Quaker said...

Another good one by Casey: "He's only 22. In another year he has a chance to be 23".
