  Heartless Bruisers release Jeter via email
Seward Park (NY) -- Mrs. Derek Jeter was pained by the task facing her this morning as her famous husband snored upstairs in their four-story mansion. She had earlier received an email from one of her girlfriends which read the Brooklyn Bruisers have cut their long-time shortstop -- her husband. "Does Derek know?" asked her girlfriend.

Mrs. Jeter was lost over what to do next. "It's not every day your husband is cut from the Brooklyn Bruisers," she explained. "This was probably the first bad news for Derek since he was in kindergarden. He's never gotten any bad news as long as I've known him. I didn't know how he would respond."

After dressing up and breakfast, she decided to tell Derek, in bed. "I entered the bedroom. He was watching Sunday Morning. Before he could say, Good morning, darling," she said, "I told him, Derek, my darling, the Bruisers have let you go. Come down for breakfast."

Mrs. Jeter left Derek alone. She noticed the volume was turned off. By the time she reached the kitchen, she heard him cry for the first time. "I never knew that was possible," she said. "He keeps his emotons to himself. After a minute, it was over. I made him pancakes when he came down. He didn't say a word about baseball nor of the Bruisers."

Jeter was among the 89 players released as the owners shed 684 shekels.
