Jeter Rips Sabathia For Blabbing To The Press

Mar 7, 2011

TAMPA, FL - A reportedly "livid" Yankee captain Derek Jeter ripped CC Sabathia for remarks the star pitcher made after being hit hard for five runs in 2-2/3 innings against the Nationals Saturday at George Steinbrenner Field, eTrueSports has learned.
 
Sabathia's crime? He used the word "home" in remarks to the press following the loss.
 
 "A couple years ago, I probably would have taken it home with me," Sabathia commented, "but I called my wife and she started laughing. Kind of sums it up right there."
 
"What happens at GSF, stays at GSF," said the legendarily tight-lipped Jeter. 

"I was at the hotel when I was talking to my wife," said a perplexed Sabathia.
 
"Blabbing is blabbing," snarled the Yankee captain who in 17 years with the Yankees has raised inauthentic banality to an art form. 

Jeter has recently been unhappy with the media attention his new 30,000 sq. foot house is receiving, which may explain his Sabathia outburst.
