Derek Jeter earned a new nickname last week when some unflattering photos were published in the New York Post. But Derek Eater isn’t offended with his new nickname. He thinks it’s kind of funny.
“I thought it was pretty funny. I guess there’s a lot of things you can do with a picture. The funny thing is we were just talking about, before then, the day or two before then, people were telling me I lost a lot of weight, and then two days later I’m on the front page of the New York Post. They had a little fun with it. But it’s over and done with.”
Jeter is currently rehabbing a broken ankle so it wouldn’t be surprising if he gained a few pounds. The photo in the Post, however, makes it seem like Jeter has been stuffing his face since his injury.
But it looks like the Post merely found an unflattering photo of the baseball star.
Jeter took a photo with MLB Network’s Harold Reynolds to “set the record straight” about his weight. He’s not standing on a scale or anything but he does look like he’s in pretty good shape.
Here’s the Derek Eater photo.
What do you think of the Derek Eater photos? Do you think Jeter has gained a little weight due to his injury?
