We Yankees fans all love Jeter

but it was always easy to see he was a bit of a prick. I'm not surprised at all by the manner in which he's going about his business. If he wins, nobody will care.

A big 'if'. he is going about it in the wrong way. This team will be sold again.
Who would

Have thought right now, Arod has a better image PR wise than Jeter.dan Lebatard was on the MKS and Jeter right now is not liked in Miami.
the article clearly says that Jeter didn't make the decision  
Giantsfan79 : 12/1/2017 12:31 pm : link
just because he's an owner doesn't mean he's part of the decision making process of every part of the organization. The article just attaches his name to incite reaction.
Maybe so  
mitch300 : 12/1/2017 12:38 pm : link
He knows about it now and should make it right.
The bigger issue is he's not the money man, but he's the face.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 12/1/2017 12:43 pm : link
The actual money men don't want to lose money, so everything must be stripped off. As the face, Cap' is the one who ends up looking shitty. It's like watching a baseball version of "Wall Street".

Winner!

And Jeter wanted to be the face of the organization and ownership group. Therefore, he gets the shit when they do something wrong, whether it was his call or not

I lived there for 4 years... Nobody in Miami cares about the Marlins. So how could he be not liked?
this is the Marlins we're  
Enzo : 12/1/2017 1:22 pm : link
talking about right? Was it supposed to be just business as usual as he took over? Firing the guy who's in the hospital is a bad optic...but the last few weeks every time the Marlins get rid of someone it's huge news for some reason. If this was some random rich dude owning the team would the coverage be the same?
Jeter's always been a low-key prick.

Yeah you'd totally know that!

New ownership is news.
Jeter is news.
Jeter as co-owner and front man is news.
But the biggest news that's the cherry on the news cake is Stanton.
Otherwise thered be a lot less caring if the news people didn't have there ears tuned in to get the hint of any GS activity.

Of course not. But that's exactly why you let Jeter buy in and make him the frontman for your ownership group.
Jeter was one of the most disliked players in baseball  
Vanzetti : 12/1/2017 7:48 pm : link
Yankee fans loved him--and rightly so--but fans of other teams didn't and neither did his peers, who voted him the most overrated player in MLB a few years back

If thats true then he should run for

public office
Jeter always sort of shielded himself from criticism...  
BurberryManning : 12/1/2017 8:48 pm : link
because he was so insular. Sure, he dated famous chicks but he never spoke out of line, he guarded his personal life to a large degree and he cultivated a public image that was difficult to assail. There have been reports through the years that he was an aloof presence in the clubhouse and we all have heard off-the-record anecdotes of his extracurricular dalliances but when you got him in front of the microphone he was as Teflon as Eli. Jeter was sort of perfect for NY because he was sly enough to never give you anything concrete to nail him with and he also didnít really give a fuck.

Arod, on the other hand, was always someone that craved adoration in addition to harboring his own flaws (infertility, steroids). He was someone that had the looks, talent, and intelligence but was too insecure to let that be enough. Not to get too deep, but I read a nice expose that more or less attributed his character to the absence of his father as an adolescent. With that background, Alex seems to have always been regarded as the consummate teammate. Throughout the years best writers have noted that Arod takes it upon himself to be an ally for all of the rookies, especially the Hispanic players. Arod purchased a new suit for every rookie each year because he never got over the humiliation of not knowing how to dress when he was a younger professional (again, dad issues). Weíve seen further evidence of his value as a teammate in spring training, where heís been lauded for his work as special instructor. I wonít even bring up moving from SS to 3B...

It may be blasphemous coming from a Yankee fan but while Jeter is the golden boy and managed NYC the best, in my opinion Arod will age quite well and his image may again rival Jeterís.
One word describes Jeter  
Vanzetti : 12/1/2017 9:29 pm : link
Prudent.

Never a misstep. I'm sure Jeter lived a very exciting personal life but he never let it become public.
