A-Rod: Baltimore, man. Baltimore.
Jeter: I’ll be honest. I miss her.
A-Rod: What? Oh, Minka. Focus, Captain.
Jeter: Sorry. At least he cut his damn hair.
A-Rod: Good point.
Jeter: This is why I’m The Captain, and you’re not.
A-Rod: So, A.J. had an opt-out in his last contract. You think Cashman negotiated one for himself? Something’s got to give.
Jeter: The Captain doubts it.
A-Rod: Again with the third-person stuff? I wish we could send him back to Toronto.
Jeter: That’s not going to happen. Burnett’s the type of player, with the type of contract, that Alex Anthopoulos trades, not acquires. Let’s face it: We’re screwed.
A-Rod: He’s so overpaid.
Jeter: We’re Yankees, Alex. We’re all overpaid. Especially me. And Jorge. Definitely Jorge.
A-Rod: Second baseman Jorge! But, I mean, really overpaid.
A-Rod: Permission to call A.J. “Irene”?
Jeter: I’ll think about it. Let’s talk after the game.
A-Rod: Cool. I borrowed Cashman’s Objectivity Pipe. I’ll bring it.
Jeter: We’re going to need it.
