    There’s no timetable for Derek Jeter‘s return from the disabled list because, as Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports, the Yankees shortstop has not been cleared to resume running yet. Jeter has been on the disabled list since August 3 with a strained right calf and has progressed enough to take batting…

  2. Former major leaguer Chad Curtis’ criminal sexual conduct trial is underway

    Aug 13, 2013, 8:53 AM EDT

    Chad Curtis

    Chad Curtis, whose major league career featured stints with the Angels, Tigers, Dodgers, Indians, Yankees and Rangers — and who has two World Series rings from his time in the Bronx — is on trial in Michigan on multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct arising out of his time as a volunteer weightlifting coach at a high school. The charges came to light…

  3. Derek Jeter is not close to returning

    Derek Jeter

    Oh no! Derek Jeter‘s ongoing health issues stealing the spotlight from the summer of Mariano Rivera! The Daily News reports that The Captain is not close to returning and that, after the current homestand, where he has been with the team, he’s likely to return to Florida. Joe Girardi says that once he’s down there…

    All kinds of baseball on the late night shows last night. Following up on Mark Cuban on Jay Leno, Derek Jeter was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, where he auditioned some possible new walkup music by The Roots and Fallon. Option three is actually pretty freakin’ sweet. He’ll never use it because…

  5. Derek Jeter goes on DL to make room for Alex Rodriguez

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:58 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Maybe the Yankees were thinking of waiting a couple of more days to see how Derek Jeter‘s injured calf would respond, but that would have required cutting an infielder to make room for the returning Alex Rodriguez on Monday. Instead, they chose the prudent course and placed Jeter on the disabled list for the third…

  6. Alex Rodriguez’s “legacy” will not be tainted by his Biogenesis suspension. It was tainted years ago.

    In light of today’s forthcoming suspension many will, once again, rush in front of television cameras to tell us how Alex Rodriguez‘s legacy is now tarnished. Or “now forever tarnished.” Or “his legacy, once sterling, is now as tarnished as … hmm … what is something that is tarnished …?  Bob, get that intern to…

    Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter sat out the final two games of this weekend’s series in San Diego against the Padres with an ailing calf. Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger is reporting that Jeter has been diagnosed with a mild strain of the calf, which portends to keep the Yankee legend out longer than just the…

    Leading off the top of the eighth inning with his team trailing the Padres 6-3, Robinson Cano weakly grounded out to second baseman Logan Forsythe, who handily threw him out at first with plenty of time to spare. Cano lightly jogged down the first base line before turning back towards the dugout. Michael Kay, leading…

    Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will sit out the remainder of his team’s series in San Diego against the Padres due to a calf problem, reports Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger.

    This fascinating interview of Tino Martinez by Kenny Rosenthal reminds me again that I planned years ago to write a book called “Moneyball.” Obviously it was going to be nothing at all like Michael Lewis’ classic. The idea was to write about the late 1990s Kansas City Royals and their, um, rather awkward efforts to…

    Derek Jeter came back yesterday, hit a home run and took major part in the Yankees win. The crowd goes wild and the media goes wilder. Such is the way of the Jeter World. I am usually the first person to mock overly-effusive examples of “Jeter-is-a-magical-winning-unicorn!” prose, the likes of which always comes out when…

  12. Would the Yankees sue A-Rod for “damaging the Yankees brand?”

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:55 AM EDT

    The idea of voiding player contracts in retaliation for PED suspensions is a non-starter at present, as the Collective Bargaining Agreement specifies that the Joint Drug Agreement constitutes the sole basis of punishment for PED use.  We talked a lot recently about why changing the CBA/JDA to include contract voiding is undesirable. In just the…

    Braves 5, Cardinals 2: That was somewhat unexpected. A less-than-dominant Braves team sweeps the best team in the National League. The key was Kris Medlen allowing two runs on eight hits. The key all series was good starting pitching from the Braves. So of course the big talking point everyone has is how Jason Heyward…

  14. Just like old times: Derek Jeter returns, Alfonso Soriano helps Yankees walk off

    Jul 28, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v New York Yankees

    Before he joined the Yankees on Friday, Alfonso Soriano was last teammates with Derek Jeter in September 2003, nearly ten years ago. Jeter once again made his triumphant return this afternoon, having recovered from a quad injury suffered in his 2013 debut on July 11. In that first game back, Jeter singled in his first…

    Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter homered Sunday on the first pitch of his first at-bat since returning from a Grade 1 quadriceps muscle strain. It was only his fifth at-bat of the 2013 regular season. The home run was the Yankees’ first since the All-Star break and just the third home run hit by a Yankees…

  16. Derek Jeter is back in the Yankees’ lineup Sunday

    Derek Jeter lasted just one game when he returned from ankle surgery on July 11. We’ll see if his 39-year-old body cooperates a little more this time. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the veteran shortstop has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and is batting second in the Yankees’ series…

    Yankees' Sabathia reacts after catcher Romine made a throwing error on a bunt by Bay Rays' Jennings and a run scored during their MLB American League game at Yankee Stadium

    Things are getting really ugly for CC Sabathia. After the big left-hander was knocked around by the Red Sox on Sunday, he gave up seven runs over five innings last night in a 10-6 loss to the Rays. Sabathia began the outing with a 1-2-3 first inning, but he allowed six runs on six hits…

  19. World’s worst Derek Jeter fan fiction?

    Is this an up-to-the-second report on the minutiae of Derek Jeter‘s injury status or the world’s worst erotic fan fiction? You decide! I sense gift baskets being an integral plot point.

    With everyone focused on when Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter might come off the disabled list, Curtis Granderson got three plate appearances in a simulated game at the Yankees’ spring training complex in Florida. Granderson has been out for two months with a fractured left pinkie finger and afterward told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that…

  21. The Daily News is still pushing the “A-Rod will never play again” angle

    This is getting pathological. The New York Daily News has been pushing the idea that A-Rod will never play again angle for some time. Their thinking, as much as I can follow it anyway, is that A-Rod, in an effort to protect his legacy or his money or avoid Biogenesis punishment or … something ……

  22. Derek Jeter no longer feeling quad pain, wants to return Saturday

    Kansas City Royals v New York Yankees

    Per ESPN’s Andrew Marchand, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is no longer feeling pain in his injured quadriceps. He thinks he may be able to return by next Saturday, when the Yankees play the Rays. Manager Joe Girardi isn’t as hopeful. “I guess anything is possible,” Girardi said. “I guess the biggest hurdle that he would…

    After missing the first 90 games of the season Derek Jeter returned from a broken ankle last Thursday, only to injure his quadriceps midway through his first game back. Jeter used the All-Star break to rest up, hoping to avoid a return to the disabled list, but the Yankees have placed the shortstop back on…

  24. And the Matt Harvey backlash has begun

    Jul 18, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    All Star Game Baseball

    Remember yesterday’s Men’s Journal profile of Matt Harvey that contained some good tidbits about the Mets right-hander’s Derek Jeter-modeled dating life and fun-sounding family? Well, apparently Harvey is experiencing a bit of a backlash to all the details he shared, because he just posted this on Twitter: It really sucks how words get used and…

    I just read David Amsden’s profile of Mets ace Matt Harvey in the August issue of Men’s Journal magazine and wanted to pass along a couple of particularly amusing excerpts (the whole article is definitely worth reading). First, here’s Harvey on participating in the New York nightlife and wanting to be like Derek Jeter: “That…
