Jean Afterman Talks A Little Smack

As Joe Girardi and President Obama held the World Series Trophy, the verbal jousting at the White House between The White-Sox-Fan-In-Chief and an “unidentified” member of the party of New York Yankees has already been wildly misquoted to include words like “hate.” It actually went thusly, according to a careful review of the audio on the videotape:

Yankee: Wanna hold it? You may not get the chance to again!

President: And you wonder why the other teams don’t root for them.

The “unidentified” speaker is Jean Afterman, Vice President and Assistant General Manager, and the executive in charge of the Yanks’ international player procurement.

    This is one more thing among many that President Obama and I agree on, as a die-hard Angels fan I believe the collusion between Bobby Wilson and Mark Teixeira was dirty, not for the play itself, but for Mark Teixeira’s nonchalant attitude after the play, he could have at least checked on Bobby Wilson to make sure he was okay. I can’t help but wonder if that’s the Yankees’ way of conducting themselves. I think the need an attitude adjustment across the board, I believe that’s why baseball fans that are not Yankee fans, universally dislike the New York Yankees. It’s not jealousy for their 27 World Series Championships but it’s because of their inability to recognize how privileged they are to be in a professional baseball organization.

    From my “handle” you can correctly surmise I am a Yankee fan. I also don’t condone unsportsmanship, from any team or player, including those who I root for. (Which is why I did not take A-Rod’s side in the Braden affair in Oakland.)

    As far as I can tell, Tex does not have an attitude problem. But perhaps his reaction to the collision with Wilson may have been rooted in having been hit by an Ervin Santana pitch earlier in the inning.


    – Teixeira was hit by a pitch by the Angels’ Ervin Santana earlier in the inning, something [Torii] Hunter suggested motivated the Yankees first baseman. Santana made the same suggestion, according to

    “It’s early in the game, the third inning, and you don’t expect something like that,” Hunter said. “The guy’s upset. He’s on a mission. Tex is a great guy, but even good guys get upset sometimes. I’ve been there.”

    – Teixeira told he felt “horrible” about the play and that he tried calling the Angels clubhouse on Friday night and also sent messages to Wilson.

    – Angels manager Mike Scioscia, also an ex-big league catcher, called it a clean play.

    So, let’s not attack an entire organization over this, shall we? Especially if the opposing team isn’t doing it.

    The play itself was possibly not dirty, but the attitudes displayed in front of the camera were, the mound incident in Oakland between Alex Rodriguez and Dallas is yet another example, I’m not attacking the organization, the organization itself is very classy, I am however, attacking the nonchalant attitudes within the organization. Sometimes perception dwarfs fact, all I can tell you is a left a very bad taste in Angel fans’ collective mouth. Especially since Mark himself is a former angel.

    I based my comments not on any superior knowledge of mine (though the Royals have not had a decent season since Kaufman died). I live in Mid Missouri, and I know a lot of Royals fans. They continously bitch about Glass not willing to spend money on decent players. If Alex Gordon is the real deal then more power to them and I do hope with the changes they have made, the Royals can dig themselves out of the 10 plus years of losing seasons. how to win the lottery

    It sucked to see Robinson Cano Injured when the Yankees Lost to Baltimore, I was watching the game with my wife, at our country log cabin retreat, thankfully the neighbors back home couldn’t hear my cries and tears when the Yankees went down 6 and 3.
