Girardi, though, was asked about more drastic moves involving Jeter,...
The scrutiny surrounding Jeter will persist whether he goes 1 for 4 or 4 for 4, whether he hits four ground-ball singles or four line-drive outs. Girardi has grown accustomed to the daily siege of questions about Jeter
, saying that he understood the ripple effect in the clubhouse of a potential lineup change, but that it was a moot point because it was not under consideration
Heavy. Girardi faces "questions," "scrutiny.
" The "scrutiny" will go on even if Jeter is "4 for 4,"
. This situation exists because the Yankee general manager either wants it to or allows it to. Why would an honest person with a shred of conscience choose a career as a baseball writer/media activist with masters to serve around every corner? Truly a perverse way to make a living. I don't see why anyone would buy a ticket to a Yankee game with all the negativity the activist media spreads. Management has never done anything to stop it. Fans may say it's just part of being a Yankee fan. BS. That attitude allows it to continue. I hope Jeter is out of the line up for the next 2 months (with something benign), how's that Mr. Cashman? And I hope your stadium is empty. ed.
