Jeter and A-Rod -- Stand-Up and Standoffish?

12/4/2007 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Baseball hotties Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez are both Yankees, amazing ballplayers, toweringly handsome, expensively moisturized and extremely well paid.


But they were distinctly divergent this weekend in New York, when TMZ spotted Jeter filming a spot for Gatorade's new lo-cal G2 energy drink, and A-Rod getting his morning paper from a local newsstand. While Jeter gabbed and signed for everyone in sight, A-Rod kept his distance, though oddly enough, so did fans. Aloof, party of one!

A-Rod did reveal that he's not a New York Post guy -- he's a Times man, thanks very much.

Hey skankee fan, Ortiz plays a good first base but we'd be fools to play him there when we've got the Gold Glove playing that position. I'm not saying Ortiz deserved the MVP this year, with the numbers A-Rod put up he was the right guy (although I like Magglio, he's damn cute). If anybody wants the real baseball gossip, check out On the DL. You'll find out just how bad A-Rod and Jeter really can be. (Though Bronson Arroyo is the real manwhore.)
And as far as the Yankees winning so many more World Series, note that they haven't managed a thing since Theo and Tito got on board. Manny and David aren't the only reasons we won. We win because our team has the best spirit as well as good hitting, pitching and fielding. Check your stats. I'd suggest MLB.com.

Sarita P.-You are right on some accounts. No we do not really know these athletes. We get a overall feeling with the interviews, and articles and other peoples observations. You point to Jeter being "fake", even more so than Rodriguez because he didn't throw a A-bomb on A-rod, after his final "insults" in that Esquire article. He had previously insulted him along the same lines a year before that in another article, at that time Rodriquez apologized, saying they got it wrong, he didn't mean it. Proverb says, Fool me once shame on you, Fool me twice, shame on me. I actually commend Jeter for simply putting some distance between A-rod and himself. He could have done what most of us do and cursed his friend out, drag him through the press, said I hate A-rod. After all Jeter was drafted out of H.S. as Rodriguez was, Jeter was Rookie of the year in '96, had 4 rings, World Series MVP in 2000 when that Esquire magazine came out....but the guy who stays at your house disses you big time in the press at least 2 times that we know of. How many times had he done it with mutual friends? No it takes more restraint sometimes to keep a beef private, rather than make it public. If he doesan't want the press in on a problem with a friend, or ex friend, that is his business. After all, Rodriguez came to the Yankees, after his deal with Boston fell through. Jeter didn't leave the Yanks. I don't think to state Jeter is a good guy is an overstatement, there are many who do know him and state it all the time and I have never read a article that says he isn't. Most articles con't on with his relationship with A -rod, his celebrity girlfriends, and of late, his tax problems with residency and NY. And believe me, in today's media, any dirt on anyone, even if it is blantantly untrue get's printed. Shoot, they print stuff on the Pope to sell a paper, and they do, do it!

An AOL Fan House blog entry mentions that a representative from LARagMag.com appeared on the The Adam Carolla Show and disclosed the following:

Jessica Alba (before she was Jessica Alba) used to date Derek Jeter, the serial celebrity dater, who plays for the NY Yankees. Well, our source worked for Cash Warren, her ex, and had to refill her Valtrex prescription for her on a regular basis! Guess who she got it from…that’s right…dirty Derek Jeter.

You know what this means don’t YOU?!! All of his other famous relationships could have contracted the STD TOO! Derek’s most famous sexual conquest include Mariah Carey, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Minnillo and most recently Jessica Biel. Which means JT could have it AAAHHH!!

The Herpes Simplex disease is sexually transmitted. Herpes can be contracted through direct skin contact with an infected person. The virus travels through tiny breaks in the skin or mucous membranes in the mouth (HSV-1) and genital areas (HSV-2), however healthy skin and mucous membranes are normally an effective barrier to infection.

However, in the case of mucous membranes, even microscopic abrasions are sufficient to expose the nerve endings into which the virus splices itself. This is why most herpes transmission happens in mucous membranes, or in areas of the body where mucous membranes and normal skin merge (e.g., the corners of the mouth).

Individuals like Derek Jeter, who are known to sleep with various women, who in turn could be labeled as “promiscuous”, stand greater odds of contracting and passing on Herpes Simplex disease

Jeter better get some Valtrex with all those millions you got brother. Don't forget to pay them millions of dollars of taxes you tried to cheat the government out of man. Afraud can loan you some money when you get broke paying them taxes back and buy you some Valtrex too.

I'm no A-Rod fan, but you guys are seriously misjudging him on this one. He was simply walking down the street. Unlike Jeter, no one was asking him for autographs. ARod was curteous and smiled at whoever smiled at him while he was walking.

Also, don't make judgments about people based on what you read in the papers because things that go on behind closed doors are never accurately reported. The only reason Jeter didn't have his mug on the NYPost with the latest conquest like A-Rod was because Jeter isn't married. Its well known in NY that Jeter is out with lots of chicks and its not worth reporting (unless she's famous). ARod on the other hand had a wife and child at home and he had no business being with the next Ms. Olympia.

THTJB Rocks -agree with you. I know of very few people who married the first, or second, or third persons they meet. Not to defend Jeter, but like you said, the guy isn't married. If he is going to date/sleep around, better he does it before marriage. “Promiscuous”, I don't know, but those who have never had sex before marriage would be someone who could be a better judge of promiscuity, since, everyone has a different definition of it....2 encounters, 10, 20, 50? I don't know, I have my own definition, which may not be yours to the 2 who blogged earlier. I'm not going there.
I certainly don't know him that well. Every one he dates, does he sleep with ; ' )

New York fans were willing to pay A-Rod so if they don't want autographs that is up too them. I'm sure A-Rod is laughing all the way to the bank.

Budoka57, 4 in 11 compares reasonably well when you consider that only one member of our team, Tim Wakefield, a knuckleball pitcher, has been on the team for 11 years. If you want to point at a significant member of a team, you should look at Schilling. He came to town and won 2 rings in 4 years with a detached Achilles tendon.

Your Yankees haven't even gotten past the ALDS since we pulled the unprecedented feat of coming back from 3 games down to win the best of 7. A-Rod even tried to cheat by knocking the ball out of Arroyo's hand. I'll give Jeter this, he is one of the best athletes in the game. But the Yankees haven't won since they got A-Rod and don't even get me started on Damon. Now you know why we wouldn't give him four years. He won't last that long.

Malinda, We know the stripper A-Rod was with was his mistress because he's been going around with her for awhile now. It was an open secret. If you want the real baseball gossip go to On The DL.

I love Derek Jeter, but I must say. My children and I met Arod and he graciously signed things for my kids and spoke with them in a down to earth and very interested manner. One could tell he has a child. I think it is unfair to judge him on this one incident.
