Derek JeterBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Someone in Tampa don't know what they want, but know how to get it. They wanna destroy the poster boy, because they wanna be anarchy. … Get pissed, destroy… or something.

A vandal painted a circled A, the anarchy symbol many of us had on our notebook in seventh grade to show how punk rock we were, on Derek Jeter's Tampa mansion, according to the MJ Morning Show on Florida's 93.3 FLZ radio station, which has a picture.

The house next door was also vandalized with what the story describes as the words "F*ck Pigs." I'm guessing the vandal didn't use the asterisk, but I didn't see it. But the fact another neighbor in the tony neighborhood got the same treatment as Jeter suggests it wasn't a comment on the Yankees' acquisition of Michael Pineda.

According to the report, Jeter has people to help him out, painting over the spray paint within two hours of filing a police report.

stringaline: excellent comments!

I love cbsports.com.  It has been my first stop for ... damn ... nearly 15 years for my baseball news.


I'm curious though.  Why did you only recently register on this website?

"Someone in Tampa don't know what thy want, but know hot to get it. They wanna destroy the poster boy"... NOT AS MUCH AS YOU'D LIKE TO DESTROY THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.  "THY"?, "HOT TO GET IT"?  WOW, TURN IN YOUR PAYCHECK.

I love cbssports.com.  It has been my first stop for....damn....nearly 15 years for my baseball news.  No other site is better organized.  However, please stop reporting these kinds of things.  Also, please stop reporting injury or death of retired baseball players.  Have a section that is obituaries, and another section that is "paparazzi-esque - concerning the lives of baseball players".  

When I see these kinds of articles, I think of the regular news that I avoid whenever possible.  News is that which is relevant or impacts your life or interests.  On TV, when a reporter tells me about another 50 dead in Bosnia, and reports on a minute-to-minute basis on the maimings, injuries, deaths, etc. of people in war, around the world, in my hometown, etc., I get the idea that there is someone who is trying to scare me or make me feel uncertain or stay indoors.  

There is such an unbelievable amount of relevant news out there that is not reported, that I start to feel that creepy-crawly conspiracy feeling under my skin.  And I don't like that.   Bill Gates is vaccinizing, feeding, and housing in 3rd world countries.  How is that going?  The news does not update.  Google launched a competition with private companies to see who could be the first to land an object on the moon.  How's that going?  The news does not update.  

In baseball, what is relevant to me?  I want to know the inner workings of agents, and how and why Prince Fielder had a team he was secretly being courted by.  Why did he spend so much time with the Rangers?  Why did he choose the Tigers over them?  

What are the real metrics on Jeter's fielding?  Is there some debunk to do for all the haters?  I'd like to know.  

Why was Ichiro's season so abysmal?  Was he unhappy playing on such an awful team, is it age, or was something else going on?  And why is the manager considering not batting him leadoff?  

I want to know more about these kinds of things.  I would like to see players interviewed effectively so that they don't just give the Bull Durham rhetoric.  I want to know about these fine nuances and data that are relevant to baseball and what makes it interesting.  Jeter getting tagged and Brooks breaking a hip (may he heal quicly and be healthy very soon), is not news.  

You guys are awesome.  Please be even more awesome.  I appreciate a lot of your work.

From the picture on the link, it looks like an 'A' was drawn just below the actual anarchy sign, suggesting that a first attempt was made and aborted, which begs the question: How can you f*ck up the tagging of an anarchy sign? The authorities are clearly dealing with criminal masterminds here and if Jeter weren't safely relaxing in one of his other 8 manions, I'd be concerned if I were him.
