There's low... there's lower and then there's douche.  You decide after this post about Miami owner Derek Jeter.

Here's the New York Post with that story...

"The Marlins fired a longtime scout who needs a kidney transplant, Yahoo Sports reported. They did so while he was lying in a hospital bed recovering from colon cancer surgery. Marty Scott was let go Oct. 16, just before his contract was set to expire at the end of the month.

He was at the Cleveland Clinic in Weston, Fla. A few days before the bad news, Scott had a cancerous tumor and polyps removed from his colon. Doctors found the cancer while he was undergoing tests for a kidney transplant because he has diabetes.

'Derek Jeter doesn’t owe me anything,' Scott told Yahoo Sports. 'Probably in their hearts they did what they thought was right. I know based on certain aspects of the game, I probably was making too much money. But we all love the game. We’re all in it together. I just think 40 years was worth more than a spank on the butt and see you later...

I’m very hurt. Forty years in baseball, I let a lot of people go. I never, ever fired somebody 10 days, 15 days before their contract was up. If I knew I was going to fire somebody, I did it at the beginning of September.'”

It's all you need to know. Heartless. Disrespectful, and sure, you can call it business all you want.

But Jeter's a Grinch. It's an outrageous story.  And before you come after BYB for being "disrespectful" to your Captain and Savior, think about and Google this story and recognize there are literally hundreds of publications tonight expressing disappointment in this man and his decisions as new owner of the Marlins.

For me though... this is lowest of the low.

Excellent reporting by Jeff Passan at Yahoo Sports who did he original reporting on this. 

You know who's loving this story right now? Jeff Conine.

Be Read. Get Known.

  1. You are leaving out pertinent information and misleading your readers. Jeter did not fire the guy, someone else did and Jeter probably had no clue about any details about the guy.
