Leave Derek Jeter Alone
About three weeks ago when the MLB All Star names were released all the sports reporters, experts, analysts, and everybody who wrote for a newspaper cried, “foul,” “travesty,” injustice,” at the fact that Derek Jeter was voted to start in the MLB All Star Game. They went to great lengths to make their point and prove their “expert” knowledge of why he did not belong there. Then last weekend Derek Jeter went five for five, reached the 3000 hits mark and the same people now want the same Derek Jeter to go to Phoenix. For what? I thought he did not deserve to go there.
Some of those so called sports casters, and sports reporters, and sports writers are two-faced hypocrites. They just ripped the guy to shreds up to the Friday, they thought the game could do without his presence, but now that he has reached this milestone, all of a sudden he belongs at the All Star Game.
The lesson to learn from this is that you should never get high when people praise you and do not get low when they curse you. If you learn this one lesson, you will never ever try to please anybody. That is why you have to take what these “experts” say with a grain of salt. All they want is ratings for their shows so they will say anything. I don’t blame Derek Jeter for not going. People are too quick to judge and the same people peeping in other people’s closets have theirs under lock and key. That is why no one is surprised about Murdock’s newspaper folding.
We need to learn to be patient with people. Give people the same breaks you would want. Leave derek Jeter alone. He is the greatest Yankee I know. Selah!
