"I called for a fastball. You threw a changeup." "That was my fastball." "Oh. Crap."

"Whoa. I can't believe he almost slid into my hoof."

"I mean, you're hitting like a pitcher. What do you think about giving it a try on the mound?"

"Whoa … that Lambeau Leap thing looked way easier on TV."

Derek JeterChris McGrath/Getty ImagesDerek Jeter accepts A-Rod's invitation to have a sleepover again, just like old times.
