ATHLETE WHO CAN’T RUN ADDS LOTS OF WEIGHT!

Gotta hand it to the Post, they’re always bringing you the big breaking stories. Today they have the shocking news that, brace yourself…Derek Jeter has put on some weight!

Okay, I can’t snark too hard because they did get me to click on the story straight away, and once you get past the headline and picture there’s no attempt to stir up any controversy or anything. It’s just a straight up attempt to get clicks, and it worked on me, so job well done. There’s obviously no meat to this, though: just a case of a recently injured athlete who can’t do any lower body exercises, or even run, putting on some weight. Once he’s cleared to work out, I have little doubt that Jeter will be in great shape in short order.

    Also if I had that "gut" I'd be in pretty good shape.

    Jeez Louise! This is news? I'd think anyone that's been laid up with a broken ankle would put on a few pounds, just from the lack of activity. A professional athlete is even more likely to do so. Must have been a slow news days at the Post.

    Jeter and similar players often see their success during the season substantially attributed to the intensity of their workouts during the entirety of the offseason. Unless this is hyperbole, it is unreasonable to expect him to avoid at least a somewhat down season for 2013.
