Report: Buck Showalter rips Derek Jeter

ESPN.com news services


Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter isn't backing down from the American League East's big boys.


In fact, it seems as if Showalter is going out of his way to antagonize the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.


In an interview in the April edition of Men's Journal, Showalter lashed out at Yankees captain Derek Jeter as well as Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein, according to a report in the Bergen (N.J.) Record.



Showalter I'd like to see how smart Theo Epstein is with the Tampa Bay payroll. You got Carl Crawford 'cause you paid more than anyone else, and that's what makes you smarter? That's why I like whipping their butt.

” -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter, quoted in Men's Health


"The first time we went to Yankee Stadium, I screamed at Derek Jeter from the dugout," Showalter said in Men's Journal, according to the Bergen Record. "Our guys are thinking, 'Wow, he's screaming at Derek Jeter.' Well, he's always jumping back from balls just off the plate. I know how many calls that team gets -- and yes, he [ticks] me off."





I love it! Buck is obviously trying to send a message to his team that these guys aren't untouchable....or, as Rex would say - he didn't come here to kiss Joe Girardi's or Terry Francona's rings!
