Phew! From Derek 'Eater' back to Derek Jeter

Yankees fans were crying, Red Sox fans were laughing and Jose Vizcaino was dusting off his spikes after New York Post printed an unflattering photo of Derek Jeter last week.

Alas, the Captain claimed the picture was taken from an odd angle as he was walking into a stiff breeze, and MLB Network backed him up by tweeted out this photo of a svelte Jeter and Harold Reynolds on Monday.
