Not only do these sprotswriter idiots help to spur on and spread the A-Rod - Jeter non-story, but now they are keeping it going because they are not getting the juicy soap dish they wanted. Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter were given MSNBC sports Co-Whiners of the Week award. Why? For not playing along with the medias bogus game of gotcha. Jeter gets mud slung at him as well.
"I don't have a rift with Alex," Jeter said. "We go out there. We work together. This is our fourth year to be playing together. It's annoying to hear about it all the time."
He made it sound like a choice, as if he's supposed to get brownie points for consenting to take the field with a teammate, even one he doesn't have over to his crib for play dates.
