Today Derek Jeter responded to A-Rods comments about their friendship. “Do we eat dinner together every night anymore? No?” Those were A-rods words yesterday when questioned about his friendship with Derek Jeter. Derek and Alex were best friends ten or twelve years ago when they were coming up in the New York and Texas famr systems respectively. A-rods admitted cooling of their friendship stems from a 2001 Esquire article in which he states, “Jeter’s been blessed with great talent around him,” Alex says. “He’s never had to lead. He can just go and play and have fun.” Jeter insists that their relationship makes no difference, they are both professionals. “They can make great music,” says Woodie Paige on Around the Horn today on ESPN. We’ll see if this effects the Yankees into the rest of spring training and the rest of the season.
