Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez

There was a point in time when Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez were good friends. But that friendship quickly went south when A-Rod told Esquire magazine that Jeter “has never had to lead.” That obviously rubbed Jeter the wrong way. Still, the New York Yankees teammates seemingly kept it at least cordial with each other. But when A-Rod wrapped himself up in performance-enhancing drug scandals, resulting in a 2014 full-season suspension, Jeter seemingly washed his hands of anything to do with Rodriguez. “For us, we don’t have to deal with it,” Jeter told the New York Post about A-Rod following the suspension. “It’s over and done with.” Something tells us that these two won’t be exchanging pleasantries anytime soon.
