Derek Jeter

  1. His 2014 season is history, as may be his career: so what is Alex Rodriguez’s legacy?

    Jan 11, 2014, 2:53 PM EST

    Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees

    In light of today’s ruling by the arbitrator, suspending him for 162 games, commentators will once again rush to the nearest television camera or take to their laptops and websites to tell us how Alex Rodriguez‘s legacy is now “forever tarnished” or words to that effect. When they do so, however, they will have to forget,…

  2. With A-Rod ban settled, where do the Yankees go from here?

    The Yankees can finally move forward with their plans for 2014 now that Alex Rodriguez has received a 162-game ban which also includes the postseason. And they have to be pretty happy with how things have worked out. It’s easy to see the benefits of having Rodriguez off the books for 2014, as he was…

  3. What to expect over the next five years of Hall of Fame balloting

    Don’t look at me like that. There’s literally nothing else going on right now. Anyway: The great Jay Jaffe — the creator of the JAWS Hall of Fame scoring system which ranks a candidate’s worthiness of induction — takes a look at the potential Hall of Fame ballots over the next five years to see…

  4. Rays sign Jayson Nix

    Jayson Nix, who spent the past two seasons as a utility man for the Yankees, has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rays. Nix has experience all over the field defensively, including filling in for Derek Jeter at shortstop last season, but he’s a 31-year-old career .218 hitter and hasn’t cracked a .700 OPS…

  5. The Yankees are not signing Stephen Drew

    Peter Gammons says: Brian Cashman yesterday said Yanks are not signing Stephen Drew. How Sox do pillow contract that isn’t shoved down his throat is delicate — Peter Gammons (@pgammo) December 31, 2013   I think, politically speaking, it’s hard for the Yankees to sign Drew because Derek Jeter is still there and they signed…

  6. The Yankees have already spoken to Masahiro Tanaka’s agent

    Dec 27, 2013, 3:04 PM EST

    Lots of teams are going to be in on Masahiro Tanaka, but the Yankees are moving quickly: Marc Carig of Newsday reports that the team has reached out to Tanaka’s agent, Casey Close. Close, of course, is Derek Jeter‘s agent, so there’s an existing relationship there. And the Yankees could use a starting pitcher pretty…

  7. 2014 Free Agent Tracker

    Dec 25, 2013, 12:26 AM EST

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue. Stars denote players who received qualifying offers and thus will cost their new team a draft pick if they sign elsewhere. (Non-tenders have…

  8. Yankees Hot Tub Time Machine

    hot tub time machine

    It just gets better and better with the New York Yankees. They just signed Brian Roberts. I wrote before (in my Ichiro Suzuki essay for the 100 greatest players) that this Yankees team would look awfully good … in 2006. But by essentially replacing Robinson Cano with Brian Roberts, they have — in a weird…

  9. Derek Jeter has a “no cameras” policy in his Florida home

    From Page Six of the New York Post — pointed out to us by Larry Brown Sports — evidence of the wisdom and savvy of Derek Jeter: We’re told the famously private Yankee has a basket in the foyer of his 30,875-square-foot, multimillion dollar Davis Island home, dubbed by locals “St. Jetersburg.” All guests are…

  10. Yankees looking at Mark Reynolds, Michael Young

    Dec 16, 2013, 7:55 PM EST

    Michael Young Getty

    Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Yankees are contemplating Mark Reynolds, Michael Young and Brian Roberts as they seek to add to their infield.  Reynolds would be a re-signing after finishing last season with the Bombers. He hit .236/.300/.455 with six homers in 36 games with the Yankees and .220/.306/.393 with 21 homers in…

  11. Retired Numbers and The Yankees

    Dec 11, 2013, 5:47 PM EST

    Billy Martin

    You may have heard … it looks like the New York Yankees will retire Joe Torre’s number. That is absolutely the right thing to do — heck Billy Martin’s number is retired — and it brings us just a little big closer to one of the cooler number things in sports: Very soon the first…

  12. Robinson Cano “didn’t want to play” for Joe Girardi

    Dec 7, 2013, 1:05 PM EST

    Cano Girardi AP

    Now that second baseman Robinson Cano has reportedly accepted a 10-year, $240 million contract to leave the Yankees for the Mariners, we can open the floodgates on some anonymously-sourced bad-mouthing. We have our first such story from the Cano side of things, courtesy of George A. King III of the New York Post: “Robbie didn’t…

  13. Yankees reportedly in on everyone now that Robinson Cano is off the board

    Dec 6, 2013, 7:20 PM EST

    Carlos Beltran

    Earlier today, second baseman Robinson Cano signed with the Mariners on a ten-year, $240 million contract, leaving the Yankees out in the cold with an infield that includes the embattled Alex Rodriguez, the hobbled Derek Jeter, the recovering Mark Teixeira, and the recently-signed Kelly Johnson. Now that they don’t have to set aside space for…

  14. Prince Fielder, Ian Kinsler, and mouthwatering moves

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:18 PM EST

    Prince Fielder

    Opening monologue: How many players in baseball history have a name as incompatible as “Prince Fielder?” Crazy, right? It would be like Bud Harrelson being named “Crown Batter” or Randy Johnson being named “Elfin Junkballer,” or Alex Rodriguez being named “Innocent victim.” Am I right? And what’s the deal with all the questions they ask…

  15. The Tigers and Rangers trade is just as much about past mistakes as it is about current need

    Nov 21, 2013, 5:34 AM EST

    Prince Fielder

    In case you missed the big news last night, the Tigers traded Prince Fielder to Texas for Ian Kinsler. Detroit is sending along around $30 million. The net result: the Tigers get Kinsler and about $70 million in salary relief, the Rangers get seven years of Fielder and a $138 million bill for his services.…

  16. Did PED users cost Frank Thomas four MVP awards?

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:31 AM EST

    Frank Thomas

    Frank Thomas is one of the best hitters of my lifetime and that guy should be in the Hall of Fame on the first ballot, no question. He’s also a Hall-of-Fame-level call-out-his-contemporaries-on-their-PED-use-guy. Inner circle. He was at it again the other night at a speaking engagement: “I was the one player who was hurt the…

  17. The Yankees are interested in Jhonny Peralta

    So far this offseason the Yankees have re-jiggered Derek Jeter‘s contract and signed Brendan Ryan. What’s one more shortstop among friends?

  18. The Yankees sign Brendan Ryan

    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.com reports that the Yankees and shortstop Brendan Ryan have agreed to terms. Joel Sherman of the New York Post first reported that the sides were close last week. Ryan is one of baseball’s worst hitters, but he’s perhaps the best defensive shortstop this side of Andrelton Simmons. His signing by the…

  19. Joe Torre thinks Derek Jeter would take a reduced role if it would help the Yankees

    Nov 16, 2013, 10:05 PM EST

    derek jeter getty

    Joe Torre managed the Yankees from 1996 to 2007, coinciding with the vast majority of shortstop Derek Jeter‘s playing career. If anyone knows the guy, it’s Torre. Jeter is coming off of an injury-plagued 2013 season, logging a meager 73 plate appearances in 17 games. Because of his age (39) and questionable ability to stay…

  20. Derek Jeter is going to become a book publisher

    Derek Jeter isn’t going to retire. He’s going to transition: On Thursday, he is expected to announce that he will start his own publishing division, Jeter Publishing, a partnership with Simon & Schuster. Saying he had thought a lot about his future while recovering from injuries last season, he portrayed the move as a way…

  21. Yankees close to re-signing Brendan Ryan as Derek Jeter insurance

    Nov 14, 2013, 10:15 AM EST

    brendan ryan yankees

    Back in September the Yankees acquired Brendan Ryan from the Mariners as emergency infield help even though he wouldn’t have even been eligible for the playoffs and now they’re close re-signing the free agent, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. No word on the exact money yet, but Sherman says it’ll be…

  22. Pete Rose has paid his debt. Let him back into the game

    Nov 13, 2013, 3:07 PM EST

    pete rose getty

    Let’s start with something completely different. Pete Rose played almost his entire career in a terrible hitting environment. People rarely talk about this because, well, with Pete Rose, there are always more interesting things to talk about. But it’s true. Rose played for 24 years when pitchers dominated the game. The average run-scoring environment in…

  23. Derek Jeter, Yankees agree to reworked contract for 2014

    Nov 1, 2013, 1:25 PM EST

    derek jeter getty

    Derek Jeter and the Yankees have agreed to a one-year, $12 million contract for 2014. On one hand that represents a $5 million paycut from this season, when Jeter missed all but 17 games and wasn’t effective when in the lineup. On the other hand his old contract included a $9.5 million player option for…

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  25. Red Sox redefine what it means to be dynasty

    Oct 31, 2013, 12:41 PM EST

    131031-david-ortiz-dynasty-

    These Boston Red Sox are a new kind of dynasty. I suppose there’s a question if they really ARE a dynasty, if that word “Dynasty” even means anything in today’s game, with 30 teams and the game’s structure pushing toward parity. But Boston did win its third World Series in a 10-year-span. Only eight teams…
