But here are the numbers on offseason merchandise sales from Fanatics.com: Top selling teams since Jan. 1  Boston Red Sox NY Yankees LA Dodgers St. Louis Cardinals SF Giants Best Offseason Year-over-Year increases Boston Red Sox – up 230% Pittsburgh Pirates – up 200% Kansas City…

  3. Great Moments in The Deification of Derek Jeter

    Mar 26, 2014, 11:03 AM EDT

    This headline from Jon Heyman’s story at CBS Sports.com gets at what annoys people about Derek Jeter coverage: The story itself is fine. Scouts question whether Jeter is going to be able to get it done this year. Totally legit. I just didn’t see anyone talking about “The Great” Derek Jeter or the “miracles” he…

  4. The Yankees infield range is “the worst in baseball”

    Mar 24, 2014, 1:00 PM EDT

    Brian Roberts

    That’s what a scout tells Jon Heyman: According to one big-league scout in spring training, the Yankees have to have the least range on the infield of any major-league team. While he’s only in Florida, he seems pretty certain. “It’s got to be the worst in baseball,” the scout said. Derek Jeter‘s range hasn’t been great for years,…

  5. Back injury likely to send Brendan Ryan to the disabled list

    Mar 21, 2014, 10:15 AM EDT

    brendan ryan yankees

    Brendan Ryan was slated to be the Yankees’ utility infielder and Derek Jeter insurance, but instead he’s likely to begin the season on the disabled list with a back injury. Ryan hasn’t played in a game since March 4 and tweaked his back warming up yesterday, canceling plans to rejoin the Yankees’ lineup. Ryan and…

  6. The Yankees were no-hit by the Marlins in Panama

    Steve Cishek

    It may be spring training, but no-hitters are always fun. Marlins pitchers Brad Hand, Steve Cishek, A.J. Ramos, and Arquimedes Camineros combined for nine innings of no-hit baseball against the Yankees. The game was played at Rod Carew Stadium in Panama as part of the “Legend Series”. Brad Hand started the game and went five…

  7. David Ortiz offers the highest praise for Derek Jeter

    Mar 5, 2014, 9:03 AM EDT

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Four

    David Ortiz told MLB Network Radio that he’s going to miss Derek Jeter when he’s gone: “If there’s one guy that the baseball game is gonna miss once he’s retired, it’s Derek . . . He is one of the baseball players that I can tell you that pretty much his whole career has done everything perfectly…

  8. Roger Clemens to be a big part of the Derek Jeter goodbye in Houston

    Mar 4, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT

    Roger Clemens

    The Yankees’ first series this year is in Houston, and it’ll be the Yankees’ only trip to Houston, so it’ll be the first stop on the Derek Jeter farewell tour. And an old friend of Jeter’s will be playing a big part in the festivities: The first stop on the Derek Jeter Long Goodbye Tour…

  9. Inside Masahiro Tanaka’s debut

    Mar 1, 2014, 4:04 PM EDT

    Masahiro Tanaka

    TAMPA — The original plan was to go sit in the crowd and drink beer at the Astros-Tigers game, but when it was announced that Masahiro Tanaka was making his spring training debut in Tampa today, plans changed. I got in the car at 6:30 this morning and headed to Steinbrenner Field early to take…

  10. Derek Jeter plays five innings in spring debut

    Feb 27, 2014, 3:33 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    After coming out to a standing ovation, Derek Jeter went 0-for-2 Thursday in the first appearance of his farewell season. Jeter, who announced his retirement earlier this month, played his scheduled five innings at shortstop before leaving the game against the Pirates. He grounded into a double play his first time up against sinkerballer Charlie…

  11. No, Derek Jeter will not play the anti-PED hero for you

    Feb 27, 2014, 9:00 AM EDT

    jeter-reuiters

    If that headline sounds familiar it’s because I used one remarkably like it two weeks ago. Then, as now, I do so in response to a Bob Klapisch column. Then, as now, Kalpisch is using his column in a desperate effort to make Derek Jeter into some kind of anti-PEDs hero. Two weeks ago he…

  12. 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…

  13. Alfonso Soriano may retire after this year

    Feb 21, 2014, 3:20 PM EDT

    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.…

  14. 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…

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

    Feb 15, 2014, 7:05 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 14, 2014, 8:33 AM EDT

    jeter getty

    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…

  17. Yankees among teams scouting Cuban shortstop Aledmys Diaz

    Feb 13, 2014, 6:31 PM EDT

    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.…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

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

    Feb 13, 2014, 6:57 AM EDT

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

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

    Feb 12, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) jeterap2.jpg for post 3593

    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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. Derek Jeter is the master

    Feb 10, 2014, 4:28 PM EDT

    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…

  25. Derek Jeter looks “amazing”

    Feb 7, 2014, 9:27 AM EDT

    derek jeter getty

    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…
