Friday's "Derek Eater" cover with an accompanying photo of a chunky Jeter at a South Beach, Miami hotel where he's rehabbing his broken left ankles has, unsurprisingly, set the Twitterverse alight.
The jokes have been helped along by the great Yankee himself who preemptively set himself up when he sagely said, "There may be people who have more talent than you, but there's no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do."
Likewise, Yankees GM Brian Cashman provided funny fodder of his own when after seeing the Post's cover this morning he said, "You’re not gonna find anyone more committed to being the best he can be than Derek Jeter.”
With setups like that the Tweets have been flying, and below you'll find some of the best.
