07:56 AM ET 07.17 | Oakland. The Hall of Famer is opting to spend the weekend with the Yankees instead of traveling to Cooperstown for the Hall of Fame inductions. "He is not expected," Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson said of Jackson, who was sidelined by the Yankees during their series in Boston prior to the All-Star break and series against the Angels and Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium after being critical of Alex Rodriguez and Andy Pettitte's Hall of Fame credentials due to the use of performance enhancing drugs. Jackson also questioned whether Gary Carter, Jim Rice and others belonged in the Hall of Fame based on playing careers.

Lost what little respect I had for him after he ripped about Gary Carter's appointment to the Hall of Fame. And as Clem previously said, that's putting it nicely!

I guess the Yanks decided he'd spent enough time in the Time Out corner.

I don't get WHY he made the comments. Is he trying to plug a book he's written/selling and after some free publicity or something...?!

Because he's an egotistical windbag. He was just using them as a springboard to talking about himself.

What I find most annoying about Jackson is he puts himself forward as Mr. Yankee. He spent 5 years of 21 year career with them. He was a freakin' rental.

The A's don't pay him 100k a year for a now show job.

Going to the stadium tonight to watch CC's return, and how many HR's are hit by the Yanks.
