Reggie Jackson invited to rejoin Yankees later this week

As it turns out, Reggie Jackson’s indefinite ban from the team will last less than two weeks. George King reports that Mr. October has been invited to rejoin the club when they head out to Oakland later this week. Jackson was banned after making disparaging comments about Alex Rodriguez, Gary Carter, Kirby Puckett, and others during a recent Sports Illustrated interview, and he is not expected to be part of the Hall of Fame ceremony later this month.

    Even though he was wrong about Kirby and Carter who are hall of famers Reggie wasn’t wrong about bert blyleven not being a hall a famer.

    He also wasn’t wrong about how many hall of famers are feeling about the steroid users who in the future will be eligibility worthy.

      Most of those HOFers that complain about steroid users gladly used greenies when they played. Or doctored the ball.

      Also, he was wrong about Blyleven. But if he wanted to single someone out as not being worthy, then maybe he should have targeted the all time leader in strike outs (as a batter).

    • Steve (different one)

      He was wrong Blyleven.

      Also, its fine if you want to take a hard line on steroids, but then to say Pettitte could be in the Hall? F off.

    Still a douche.

      Puckett had a long history of spousal abuse and domestic violence but, yeah, Reggie’s the douche. ‘kay.

      • Steve (different one)

        Why can’t they both be douches?

        • Steve

          Because one of them played for the Yankees

      • Knoxvillain

        I never said Puckett wasn’t one either. But Reggie is a true douche.

  • Nathan

    Doesn’t Reggie live in the Bay Area? I usually see him in Oakland when the Yankees are in town and have never seen him actually in New York when I go to visit.
