I really wanted to start this off by saying HEY EVERYBODY! LOOK AT DETER JETER, HE GOT REALLY FAT! Sadly, it turns out he actually isn’t fat and there was probably just a breeze that blew his shirt out and made it look that way. So really, nothing has changed – Jeter is still an all time great, the Yankees didn’t win the World Series (just about all that Red Sox fans can be grateful for) and he’s still reeling in upper echelon trim. Derek Jeter’s girlfriend Hannah Davis is yet another example that he is a god among men.
So who is Hannah Davis? We can start with the basics – she is a very attractive model. But that’s pretty much a given. I wonder if Jeter can even see ugly women at this point in his life. Certainly wouldn’t be shocked if his brain had a way of filtering them out. But I digress. Davis is originally from the Virgin Islands, where she was discovered at the young age of 14. Her big break came at a fragrance model for Ralph Lauren, but she has also done work for Victoria Secret, Tommy Hilfiger and American Eagle.
There’s more to Davis then just looks though. She also played tennis growing up and competed on the Caribbean Tennis circuit. In case that wasn’t enough for you, she also excelled at volleyball, making the Virgin Islands National Volleyball team and conjuring images of Bo Jackson (Yes, this is a stretch. We know. Move along, nothing to see here). With stunning looks and athleticism, it’s no wonder she got Jeter’s attention.
Jeter and Davis reportedly began seeing each other around the end of July. From what we can tell, the two actually split up for a while (maybe Jeter really did get fat!) but have recently made amends and seem happy again. So will Davis succeed where others (notably, pre-crazy Mariah Carey, Jessica Alba, Adriana Lima, Jessica Biel and Minka Kelly) failed and get Jeter to settle down? Probably not, but we’ll keep an eye on it.

I'm sure it can't be easy being the son of the late George Steinbrenner.
I mean aren't you more or less in a no-win situation owning the Yankees? There is no possible way anyone can be as cutthroat as George, while also having the financial wherewithal to be as crazy as George was when he ran the team. The more I think about it I'm surprised Hal and his brother Hank still own the team. I'd compare this to the poor coach who has to take over for Bill Belichick when he retires - just simply the next guy in line can't win (I'm sorry Josh McDaniels).
Despite that fact that Hal is set up to fail as owner of the Yankees I'm here to tell you one area and one person that he hasn't failed, and that's Hal Steinbrenner's wife Christina DiTullio. To rewind and recap for a moment, I guess technically he did fail as this is his second wife but boy did Hal get it right this time. Ironically enough when Christina and Hall met shortly after Hal's divorce from his first wife, Christina had no clue who Hal was or anything about baseball. I'm always amazed when people say they don't know anything about a sport. You don't need to be an expert about the sport but to not know anything about baseball or who Alex Rodriguez strikes me as strange. Hell I hate country music but I sure as hell know who Taylor Swift is and her twelve ex-boyfriends. Well regardless of Christina's knowledge of baseball she was a big hit with Hal. Christina met Hall on a blind date setup by a mutual friend. The couple would marry in a simple ceremony (by Steinbrenner standards) at George's horse farm in Florida.

We will be the first to admit we've historically torn Alex Rodriguez apart on this site. But for once,... we're going to take the purple lip glossed douchebag's side here.
Alex Rodriguez has had an historically bad 2012 post-season, which may not actually be all bad since it's the first time he has anything in common with the rest of his teammates since he arrived in the Bronx. Finally, and humanely, Girardi pulled Rodriguez from the starting lineup during the ALDS and has since relegated him to the bench again in the ALCS to watch what's left of the Yankees 2012 playoff run.
ARod has to be pissed, and it's pretty clear he's continued mailing in his performances. With extra time on the bench, he's found little to do. Besides standing on the top step of the dugout and chewing sunflower seeds at a chipmunk-esque and borderline OCD tempo, A-Rod has to be running out of ways to spend a game. Since MLB has banned smartphones in the dugout, there's nothing to do to pass the time... no Angry Birds or Words with Friends (not that we actually believe he could string together more than three random letters to form words). With the Molina level lack of speed to AL playoff games, these can take 4, 5 hours or more.
So what is he supposed to do? He can pretend to give a damn and yell for a few innings, but that will get old both for him and for anyone that actually matters on the Yankees. He could try to mentor younger players on how to watch for subtle tips and cues in the game, but we all know that's not gonna happen. So, ARod did what any red blooded male would do,... he hit on chicks.
Enter Kyna Treacy. Australian bikini model, (who made it clear to the world via Twitter that she's only 27 not 33)and Yankees ALCS Game 1 patron. Seated close to the Yankee dugout, ARod was forced to watch the smokeshow for the better part of four hours. ARod pulled a move reserved for baseball players when he sent a baseball up to Treacy and one of her friends, which was inscribed with a message asking for her number. One of the girls (and it's not known which one) did write a message back on the ball and return it to the dugout assistant doing his best impression of ARod's wingman (seriously, dude makes $28M this year and needs a Yankee staffer to ask girls out?).
So there it is. No word if these two met after the game, but she looks pretty intelligent, so smart money is on an emphatic NO. Keep it up A-Rod,... you make covering you fun.
