Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter appears to not be a big fan of Derek Jeter, who he managed briefly in 1995.

Showalter unleashed a rant about his former player in the April edition of Men’s Journal implying Jeter over reacts at the plate. 

“The first time we [Baltimore Orioles] went to Yankee Stadium, I screamed at Derek Jeter from the dugout. Our guys are thinking, ‘Wow, he’s screaming at Derek Jeter.’ Well, he’s always jumping back from balls just off the plate. I know how many calls that team gets – and yes, he (ticks) me off.”

Showalter wasn’t done ripping on the AL East as he had some harsh words for the Boston Red Sox.

"I'd like to see how smart Theo Epstein is with the Tampa Bay payroll," Showalter told Men's Journal, according to the Record. "You got Carl Crawford 'cause you paid more than anyone else, and that's what makes you smarter? That's why I like whipping their butt. It's great, knowing those guys with the $205 million payroll are saying, 'How the hell are they beating us?'"

Showalter, 54, told the Bergen Record last week that he might have been better off toning down his comments in the “Men's Health” interview.

The Orioles were 34-23 under Showalter in 2010, but finished the season in last place at 66-95. Showalter managed the Yankees from 1992-1995 and led them to the first ever AL Wild Card in 1995 (Click here to see more Yankee managers).
