Did Derek Jeter just … forget to hustle?
Apr 7, 2014, 11:33 AM EDT
No, really. Jeter actually said something thought-provoking in an interview. This is not a drill.

And talks about what has happened in his life over the past 17+ years.

Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez each went yard twice. And I contemplate the return of the game-winning RBI stat.

Derek Jeter‘s farewell tour has already begun. Before an ultimately-rained-out game Saturday afternoon at Steinbrenner Field, the veteran shortstop was given a key to the city of Tampa … Apparently that’s the kind of love and access you get as Planet Earth’s 11th Greatest Leader. Follow @drewsilv

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…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
