Don’t Worry, Derek Jeter, Word Is You’ll Be Leaving Scranton/Wilkes-Barre For The Bronx This Weekend

derek jeter looks thrilledFor Derek Jeter, it’s been a long and winding road back from his broken ankle last October. Since then, he’s been called fat, he’s been called gay, and he’s been calling scary press conferences that make us think he’s retiring. It’s not easy being the Captain.

But all that pales in comparison to his rehab stint with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, if the looks on Jeter’s face in these photos are to be believed. He reportedly stopped over in nearby Pittston for dinner last night:



Can’t you just imagine him saying, “You want me to sign both of these things?” in that last one?

Have no fear, Mr. Jeter — you won’t need to suffer these Pennsylvania peasants much longer. Reports say that you’ll be back in the lineup for the New York Yankees against the Twins this Friday. Whew! We made it!

How are the Yankees doing, by the way? Oh, really? Oh… really? Oh.

    What an awful article! It seems that this writer is very biased and uncultured. I guess he hasn’t taken the time to travel and appreciate all of the different types of people and towns the world has to offer. To call the people of a town “peasants” is downright rude and ignorant! Many small towns, like Pittston, are proud of their history and heritage. You sir, need a little class.

    The tone of this article is completely lost on your dumb ass.

    I’m not even going to explain it to you.

    “Biased and uncultured” xD xD xD xD xD All over a small shit town in PA. I’m from a small town in PA, they suck. They wouldn’t know class if it smacked them over the head with a crowbar.

    Not that I agree with your assessment, but for the record I’ll state that I spent four years studying in PA and enjoyed it immensely.
