Update: Adam Wainwright apologized for his comments.
Via Jeff Passan, what you suspected is now confirmed:
Adam Wainwright admitted he grooved a fastball to Derek Jeter in the first: "I was gonna give him a couple pipe shots. He deserved it."— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 16, 2014
- Of course he did. Chan Ho Park wasn't trying to get Cal Ripken out.
- The first rule about groove-one-to-a-legend club is that you don't talk about groove-one-to-a-legend club.
- The second rule about groove-one-to-a-legend club is that Adam Wainwright is kind of a putz for mentioning it.
- Congratulations to Derek Jeter on his first double of the year.
Four thoughts. I had four thoughts. Adam Wainwright grooved a pitch to Derek Jeter. You figured as much. You weren't expecting to get it confirmed, though.
