Reports of Derek Jeter’s fatness were greatly exaggerated

On Friday Derek Jeter appeared to not be in The Best Shape of His Life. Yesterday he hung out with Harold Reynolds, and he looks much skinnier.

He’s clearly the beneficiary of the most intense two-day workout ever devised.

Or, possibly, that was a bad picture of the guy last week. For now I’m going with an insane, captainly workout which shows Jeter’s drive and determination.

You listening A-Rod? Gosh.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
