What part of 'shut ... up' did A-Rod miss?

(Continued)

By coincidence, Yankee captain Derek Jeter took another step Thursday in his own long rehabilitation from a broken ankle. Rodriguez has always suffered in the comparison with Jeter, and so it was one more time.

Part of the rehab process involves a minor-league assignment, and when reporters asked the date it would begin, all Jeter said was, “As soon as I can get out there, I’ll get out there. We haven’t got that far yet.”

Not that hard, is it?
