In reaction to Valentine's criticism of his 2001 ALDS flip play at the plate, Derek Jeter thinks Bobby is just bored, so he has to stir some crap up to pass the time.
"I'm indifferent, really," Jeter said on Wednesday in regards to comments Valentine made regarding the famous "flip play" Jeter made at home plate against the Oakland A's in Game 3 of the 2001 ALDS that nipped Jeremy Giambi at the plate. "I don't know Bobby well enough to know what he's trying to do. I could care less. I guess that's the best way to put it."
Jeter seemed more bemused than annoyed at the assertions.
"We do practice it, but not the flip home," Jeter said. "But who cares? Why are we talking about this? He must be bored over there, huh? I don't understand."
Once again, we are going to get a lot of this with Bobby Valentine. Jeter also brings up a good point, Why are we talking about this? I guess it has been bugging Valentine for years and since he was talking about Tek smashing A-Rod in his face, he might as well throw some Jeter criticism in there. Bobby is going to make for some great Enemy Chatter this season.
