I bet when you play like that you get a free bowl of soup

Let me start this post out by saying I would never compare Rodney Dangerfield to Derek Jeter. One is a consummate pro who turns out hit after hit after hit and is one of the greatest of all-time. The other is an error-prone, overrated shortstop for the Yankees. Last night a Jeter error led to seven (7!) unearned runs in the top of the first and in the bottom half of the inning he grounded into a double play. Obviously, the next time up, when he got hit by a pitch on the hand, the tough, gritty Yankee captain, pulled an Al Czervik in Caddyshack, "Ow! My hand. I think it's broken," forcing his way out of the game and sparing him any further humiliation. And much to everyone's surprise x-rays were negative. What a pussy. I'm surprised he didn't "injure" himself by making a routine catch on a pop up behind third base, then, for some reason, take eight extra steps and dive into the stands unnecessarily.
