Derek Jeter

  1. Buster Olney doesn’t think Vizquel, Tejada, Nomar were shortstops

    Feb 24, 2014, 6:00 PM EDT

    Buster Olney

    Let the record show that I gave fair warning: I thought Buster Olney might adjust his lists from Monday’s ESPN Insider column after being presented with the glaring omissions. Alas, I was ignored. The bulk of Olney’s column today was designed to point out how totally not overrated Derek Jeter is. He dives into the…

  2. Alfonso Soriano may retire after this year

    Yankees' Soriano points as he crosses home plate in the fifth inning of their MLB American League baseball game the Angels in New York

    Alfonso Soriano, who is still playing under that massive contract the Cubs gave him, says this year could be it: Alfonso Soriano could join Derek Jeter in retirement following the end of the upcoming baseball season. “It depends on how I feel,’’ Soriano said when asked by The Post if he wants to continue playing.…

  3. Derek Jeter: “I still have a season to play”

    Feb 19, 2014, 12:01 PM EDT

    Jeter presser

    Derek Jeter met the press today. As he said in his Facebook post last week, 2014 will be his last season. But this wasn’t a ceremony or a retirement press conference as such. The team and Jeter referred to it as Jeter’s “media availability” which he does every spring, and Jeter did everything he could to…

  4. Derek Jeter’s great, but let’s compare to Alan Trammell

    SOCHI, Russia — Well, the overwhelming thing that is the Winter Olympics has completely thrown me off my 100 greatest baseball players ever schedule. So it goes. We’ll pick up where we left off after I return and recover and get back on U.S. time. I predict this will be sometime in July. In the…

  5. Columnist proposes waiving the five-year rule so Jeter, Rivera can go into the Hall together

    Yesterday Deadspin wrote a piece making light of sportswriters mourning Derek Jeter‘s retirement announcement. The conceit was that these guys were writing as if Jeter had died. One of the jokes was “you can expect a column shortly on how the Hall of Fame ought to invoke the Roberto Clemente precedent so that he can…

  6. Yankees among teams scouting Cuban shortstop Aledmys Diaz

    Who will man shortstop for the Yankees next year after Derek Jeter retires? Well, here’s one possibility. FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi reports that the Yankees were among the teams in attendance today to watch a showcase for Cuban shortstop Aledmys Diaz in Arizona. The Cardinals, Blue Jays, Mariners, Padres, and Giants were also on hand.…

  7. Derek Jeter is not your anti-PEDs avatar

    Feb 13, 2014, 5:21 PM EDT

    New York Yankees Photo Day

    I have zero reason to think that Derek Jeter ever used PEDs. I’d personally be surprised if he did. As would I assume most people. But I also think that his use or lack thereof, absent any actual information about it, is pretty irrelevant to our consideration of him as a player. There’s plenty there…

  8. Is Derek Jeter the Most Important Yankee Ever?

    Feb 13, 2014, 9:23 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    The frustrating thing about the whole Derek Jeter conversation is that even if you — as I do — acknowledge him as an all-time great, inner-circle Hall of Famer and can’t find a bad thing to say about his professionalism, character or overall significance as a figure in the game, there are still people who…

  9. Derek Jeter’s greatest feat? Staying irrepressibly likeable as a Yankee (and baseball) icon

    Has any player since Cal Ripken or Hank Aaron or Joe DiMaggio been so respected simply for being himself?

  10. Bud Selig issues a statement about Derek Jeter’s retirement

    Matt Diaz didn’t get a statement from Bud. Derek Jeter does. I see how it is.  “In the 21-plus years in which I have served as Commissioner, Major League Baseball has had no finer ambassador than Derek Jeter.  Since his championship rookie season of 1996, Derek has represented all the best of the National Pastime…

  11. Derek Jeter has marks to shoot for in final season

    Feb 12, 2014, 2:55 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter Getty

    Not that he ever seemed particularly motivated by personal milestones, but any dream of 4,000 hits and a run at Pete Rose died for Derek Jeter when he suffered a fractured ankle in the 2012 postseason. Never healthy in 2013, he played in just 17 games due to a quad injury and continued soreness in…

  12. Derek Jeter to retire after the 2014 season

    Feb 12, 2014, 2:23 PM EDT

    New York Yankees Derek Jeter hits single against the Oakland Athletics in New York

    Simultaneously surprising and not surprising: Derek Jeter has announced that 2014 will be his last season. Surprising because it’s going to be hard to imagine baseball without Derek Jeter’s presence. His injuries last season aside, the New York Yankees shortstop has been baseball’s constant for nearly 20 years.  Not surprising because he turns 40 in…

  13. Derek Jeter is the master

    Derek Jeter Getty

    Not at baseball. I mean, that’s not news. Of course he’s a master at baseball. First ballot Hall of Famer and one of the greatest ever. You knew that.  I’m talking about his media game. Take this story in the New York Daily News. Jeter, once again, being asked about A-Rod stuff. He responds to…

  14. Derek Jeter looks “amazing”

    Reporters haven’t been able to do much better than “Bigfoot off in the distance” pictures of Derek Jeter working out down in Tampa, but the Yankees’ David Phelps has an early review of the Captain on the Comeback Trail: “Derek looks amazing. That’s awesome . . . You can tell he’s determined to go out there…

    I don’t have a whole lot of room to talk on this subject considering I use a BlackBerry and take horrible pictures with it on a regular basis, but this shot of Derek Jeter (allegedly!) by Kevin Kernan of the New York Post is hilariously awful: Jeter taking some infield pic.twitter.com/0qDlCaAsX6 — Kevin Kernan (@WheresKernan)…

  16. Derek Jeter takes BP and fields grounders at shortstop for first time this year

    Feb 3, 2014, 7:09 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter AP

    Coming off an injury-plagued 2013 season, Derek Jeter is going to command attention with pretty much every move that he makes this spring. Today was no different, as the Associated Press reports that he took live batting practice on the field and fielded grounders from shortstop for the first time this year. Jeter took 39…

  17. Michael Young and the chase for 3,000 hits

    Jan 30, 2014, 7:30 PM EDT

    Michael Young

    Michael Young led the American League in hits for the second time in his career in 2011, finishing with 213. That brought his career total to 2,061 through age 34, and despite a late start — he didn’t collect his first hit in the majors until age 24 — he appeared to have some shot…

  18. Report: The Yankees are now considering going after Stephen Drew

    Stephen Drew Getty

    With questions all over their infield, many have speculated that free agent Stephen Drew could be a good fit for the Yankees. Now that the Yankees have blown past the $189 million threshold with the Masahiro Tanaka signing, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman hears that they are considering the possibility: There has been a thought the…

  19. Ranking the best 1-2 rotation punches in baseball

    The Yankees made headlines when it was announced that they had signed Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year deal worth $155 million. They were in need of rotation help and satisfied that need in a big way by signing the best free agent pitcher on the market. That the Yankees signed him came as…

  20. Masahiro Tanaka will help, but the Yankees need much more than him to be a contender

    Jan 22, 2014, 12:24 PM EDT

    Yankees logo

    The offseason distorts things. The wintertime focus on individual player signings and the underlying optimism everyone seems to have about the prospects of their local nine often makes us forget that, in baseball, one player cannot make the difference between winning and losing. Heck, sometimes even three players don’t. Just ask Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton,…

Many, including this writer, assumed the Dodgers were the front-runners. But that’s what one gets for assuming. The Yankees,…

  22. Derek Jeter has first on-field workout since his injury-plagued 2013

    Jan 20, 2014, 6:29 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter AP

    According to the Associated Press, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter had his first on-field workout today since his injury-plagued 2013 season. After hitting off a tee in a batting cage and fielding 108 grounders at the Yankees minor league complex in Tampa, Florida, he told reporters that his left ankle is no longer an issue. Jeter,…

  23. Derek Jeter is “saddened” by the A-Rod situation

    Jan 16, 2014, 7:42 AM EDT

    The Captain has made his first public comments about Alex Rodriguez. As is usually the case with Derek Jeter, he hits the right notes and it’s hard to take any issue with what he said: “As a teammate, you’re saddened by the whole thing. The whole thing has been kind of messy . . . he’s…

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

    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,…

    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…
