QUIZ: Are they talking about Derek Jeter or Drake LaRoche?
On Saturday, Chicago White Sox lefty Chris Sale insisted to reporters that the club was refocusing its attention on baseball after an improbable week of controversy, name-calling, and clubhouse divide.
In the days since Adam LaRoche announced he planned to step away from baseball, we've heard reports of the White Sox front office telling LaRoche to keep his son away from the ballpark, Sale accusing VP Ken Williams of making "bald-faced" lies, and stories of teammates respecting - and even resenting - 14-year-old Drake LaRoche.
But despite a report that claims White Sox players and staff complained about Drake's presence in the clubhouse last season, LaRoche's ex-teammates have only praised his teenage son on the record. In fact, the support for Drake has been so overwhelming that you might have thought the quotes were about New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter after he announced his retirement.
Now you can put your Drakegate knowledge to the test by taking our quiz: Who were they talking about, Drake LaRoche or Derek Jeter?
