Derek Jeter

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

    Nov 13, 2013, 3:07 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 1, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    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…

  4. Red Sox redefine what it means to be dynasty

    Oct 31, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    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…

  5. Under Pressure: for World Series umpires failure is seized upon, success is ignored

    Oct 30, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

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

    BOSTON — An early morning direct flight from St. Louis to Boston the day after Game 5 of the World Series is bound to be full of folks with baseball connections. The lineup for this Southwest Airlines flight is certainly no exception. As I take my place in line to board I notice at least…

  6. Frank Deford offers some nonsense about clutch hitting

    Oct 23, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Frank Deford’s weekly NPR hit deals with the clutch hit today. And of course it’s ridiculous. You can hear it all here. Here’s the intro: As a child, your heart is broken when you learn that your grandfather really can’t pull real quarters out of your ear. And if you’re a baseball fan, that disillusionment…

  7. Are the Yankees preparing for a shopping spree?

    Oct 18, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v New York Yankees

    Sources close to ESPN’s Andrew Marchand tell him that the Yankees are preparing for a shopping spree that could total as much as $300 million. Marchand recalls that the last time the Yankees unloaded that much money in a single off-season came after the 2008 season, when the Yankees committed a total of $423 million…

  8. Derek Jeter thinks he’ll be OK next year. Will the Yankees agree?

    Oct 17, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Bryan Hoch of MLB.com has a Derek Jeter story today, the upshot of which is Jeter thinking that the real reason he couldn’t get healthy and up to speed in 2013 was because he was unable to pursue his usual offseason conditioning routine due to his broken leg last year.  He thinks, however, he’ll be…

  9. David Ortiz adds to postseason legend

    Oct 14, 2013, 1:01 AM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    With a laser beam of a grand slam in the eighth inning on Sunday night, David Ortiz essentially saved the Red Sox’s World Series hopes and further his cause as the greatest clutch hitter of his generation. But no matter how you feel about “clutch,” there’s no denying the numbers. The homer was Ortiz’s 15th…

  10. Whose career would you rather have: Derek Jeter’s or Mariano Rivera’s?

    Derek Jeter Getty

    Yankees announcer Michael Kay was on the Dan Patrick Show today and they raised an interesting question: Whose career would you rather have: Derek Jeter‘s or Mariano Rivera‘s?  Secondly: would either make it to the Yankees’ Mt. Rushmore as one of the team’s top four players ever? Personally, I’d rather have Jeter’s simply because I’d rather…

  11. Mariano Rivera holds Rays scoreless in final appearance at Yankee Stadium

    Mariano Rivera Reuters

    Mariano Rivera‘s final appearance at Yankee Stadium is in the books. While he didn’t get a save chance, he retired all four batters he faced tonight in a 4-0 loss to the Rays. Yankee Stadium was buzzing well in advance of his appearance, as loud chants of “Mariano” could be heard while he was warming…

  13. Yankees eliminated with Indians’ victory

    Yankees' Ryan, Cano and Reynolds wait for new pitcher after the Rays scored four runs in MLB game in New York

    It’s official: the Yankees’ season is over after 162 games for just the second time in the wild card era. The Bombers were eliminated from contention when the Indians topped the White Sox 7-2 on Wednesday evening. Just a few minutes later, they wrapped up an 8-3 loss to the Rays, leaving them with an…

  14. Alex Rodriguez had no idea Andy Pettitte was retiring

    Sep 20, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    a-rod reuters yankees

    Once Yankees starter Andy Pettitte made the announcement that he is calling it quits after the 2013 season ends, it seemed like everybody on planet Earth knew about it. Columns about the lefty’s Hall of Fame case were quickly scrawled and editorials about his history with performance-enhancing drug use made the rounds. One player, though,…

    In honor of a guy whose 2013 is over and whose very career is in jeopardy, this week’s walk down memory lane is all Derek Jeter.

  16. The Yankees need to get a shortstop this winter

    Sep 16, 2013, 9:26 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    It’s not often that I agree with John Harper of the Daily News, but I think his latest column is pretty much on point. The point: the Yankees can’t take a wait-and-see approach with Derek Jeter‘s health and effectiveness. They need to get an everyday shortstop this winter, making it official that Jeter will be…

  17. On Derek Jeter and other greats who had to keep playing

    Sep 13, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter Getty

    There is really no doubt at all that Derek Jeter will return and play baseball in 2014. People talk about retirement and legacies and Willie Mays falling down in the outfield — and I’m sure there will be more of that talk all offseason — but I’m willing to wager you won’t hear Derek Jeter…

  18. Derek Jeter is VHS

    Sep 12, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    jeter rehab getty

    Grant Brisbee pretty ably sums up the future of Derek Jeter at shortstop for the New York Yankees. Specifically, that he has none. That even if he exercises his player option for next year and comes back it’s likely to be as the Yankees DH/utility guy because he’ll be 40 and shortstops just don’t play…

  19. Derek Jeter back on the disabled list. His season is “effectively over”

    Sep 11, 2013, 4:26 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    And with this move, Derek Jeter‘s nightmare season effectively ends: Cashman said Jeter is being put on the DL which will “effectively end his season.” — Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) September 11, 2013 Jeter last played on September 7, so if he was DL’d retroactively, he could theoretically make the last few games of the season…

  20. Yankees acquire shortstop Brendan Ryan from Mariners

    As first reported by MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart, the Yankees have acquired shortstop Brendan Ryan from the Mariners for a player to be named later. If you needed any further indication that Derek Jeter‘s left ankle soreness is a concern, this would be it. Ryan is one of the best defensive shortstops in baseball, but he…

  21. Derek Jeter in a “holding pattern” with sore left ankle

    Sep 10, 2013, 8:23 PM EDT

    derek jeter getty

    From Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger: The holding pattern with Derek Jeter, as Yankees manager Joe Girardi phrased it, entered its third day on Tuesday, without a resolution in sight. Once again, Jeter did not engage in pre-game drills due to his cranky left ankle. Once again, team officials dismissed the suggestion he could…

  22. Thoughts on Willie Mays stumbling around the outfield

    Sep 10, 2013, 4:32 PM EDT

    Willie Mays

    Mike Vaccaro has a column up today talking about Derek Jeter in twilight and he notes that the touchstone reference for an aging athlete is “Willie Mays falling down in the outfield” or “Willie Mays stumbling in the outfield” (as I’ve often heard it) during his final season with the New York Mets. If you…

  23. Derek Jeter is sore, will get a few days off

    Derek Jeter was removed from Saturday’s loss to the Red Sox with soreness in his surgically-repaired left ankle. A CT scan came back negative, but the veteran shortstop is going to be out for a little while. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday morning that Jeter’s…

  24. Red Sox wrecking crew does it again, beats Yanks 13-9

    Sep 7, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox Jonny Gomes runs after he hit three-run home run off New York Yankees David Huff  in MLB game in New York

    The Yankees have scored 25 runs the last three days, with no victories to show for it. That’s because the Red Sox bashed their way to another win Saturday, hitting four homers in a 13-9 game. They’ve scored 34 runs so far in the series and 54 in their last four games. The 34 runs…

  25. Derek Jeter exits with soreness near ankle

    Sep 7, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    When Derek Jeter was pulled for a pinch-runner in the sixth inning Saturday, the hope was the Yankees were just preserving him in a 12-6 game. However, FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reported three innings later that Jeter was taken out due to soreness around the ankle he broke in the postseason last year. Jeter singled in…
