Derek Jeter doesn't care about winning

I don't like how OurColores is apparently the slogan for the season, its on all their news releases as the slogan typically is. It was a good slogan for the reveal, but I almost like Just Getting Started more and that wasn't that great either. Is what's his name going to do a custom song called Our Colores?

Can we count on it being bracketed by "another one" and "DJ KHALEDDDD!!!!!" ??

It was actually the next day lol. The teased date revealed the logo and the colors, which technically were already all leaked ahead of time, then they were like "uniforms will be revealed tomorrow" which is what everyone really wanted to see. 

Oh that's right.  Even worse haha.

Do you remember the name of the movie by chance?

I think the #OurColores move was pretty cool. But overall yes I can see why this is said.

Well, it was the point that mattered, but if you really want to know, thinking about it, it was an episode on a Netflix show, Taken.  So, it was a tv show, not a movie.  But I could have made it up, but not my memories.  My daughter was the same way when she was little-watching the fish in the mid-90's, we were losers, but she never wanted to leave early, always wishing for extra innings.  That is why I tempered my take on what Jeter said.  There is one difference, it wasn't about creating an experience, it was about just enjoying the game and she always knew who was playing.  So, one can still question what the "experience" is if you don't even know what teams are playing but you are going to a "Marlins game".  Do you cheer for a home run regardless of which team hits it.  So, yes, Jeter does not get off scott free for his comments.

He didn't mean this, but I see why you took it that way. I'm sure you aren't the only one that did.

I'm going to tell you now that fish53 was indeed not the only one who took it that way. Thus why we have those articles.

Those articles are written by people that possibly did get it, but they are sensationalizing it for clicks.

Absolutely, but in turn they have caused others to think that way. It's unfortunate and the narrative won't change until we start winning.

Means we'll have to listen to it for at least another year, although I think if this team happens to surpass 70 wins and surprise us, positive articles could be written.

I think Lopez is going to be fun to watch this year and if Brinson's showing so far this Spring isn't a fluke, then that'll be exciting. I worry about Monte though, he's looked absolutely lost this last week.

What's gonna be almost as funny is if Jeter does fix this mess of a franchise get ready for all the articles praising him and saying he did it right from day one. Just like now with the Astros being seen as some revolutionary geniuses.
