The ESPN shouter made some comments about Derek Jeter that got the attention of plenty of New Yorkers, including Jeter himself. During an August 22, 2012 appearance on First Take, Skip Bayless seemed to suggest that Jeter's improved performance may have something to do with PEDs.

You would have to have your head in the sand or your head somewhere else not to at least wonder, 'How is he doing this?'"
Derek Jeter was asked about the Skip Bayless comments and he said, ""What do you want me to say? Maybe Skip should be tested. I don't know him, but ... "
