Everyone wanted to talk about Derek Jeter’s knee.
“I worry about the kid,” said Javier from Highbridge. “I think he’s too tough for his own good sometimes. He probably shouldn’t have played at all. I’m glad they took him out when they did. We need him feeling better.”
There was also talk about Alex Rodriguez’s shoulder.
“The guys are having fun with him,” Javier said. “Johnny Damon said everyone thinks Alex is trying to win an Oscar. Later, some reporter asked Alex if he would settle for an MVP.”
“What did he say?” someone asked.
Javier smiled, “He said he’ll settle for a World Series title.”
