Derek Jeter

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

    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…

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

    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…

    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…

    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 that…

  10. 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 ……

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

    Jul 21, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    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…

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…

  13. And the Matt Harvey backlash has begun

    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…

    No Derek Jeter, no problem. The Yankees continued their recent dominance over the Twins with a 2-0 victory last night at a rainy Yankee Stadium. Hiroki Kuroda tossed five scoreless innings in the victory. There was a 73-minute rain delay in the fourth inning, but Kuroda waited things out and came back to pitch the…

    Was it a backlash, or something else? Also: was Derek Jeter rushed back? Really, can Derek Jeter rush anywhere?

  18. Great Moments in Derek Jeter deification

    Derek Jeter came back yesterday. And had an OK day before leaving with an injury. And the team won. All, except for the injury of course, good things.  Wallace Matthews thinks something else was going on, though. Something magical! Jeter’s first trip to the plate was like a coronation … and his first trip around…

    Alex Rodriquez

    It wasn’t too long ago that we were hearing reports that Alex Rodriguez might beat Derek Jeter back from the disabled list. Well, that obviously didn’t happen. But now CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman is hearing that A-Rod might not even be ready when his 20-day rehab clock expires later this month. As far as his…

    Derek Jeter is … go! Ken Rosenthal reports that Derek Jeter will rejoin the New York Yankees this afternoon and is expected to be in their lineup at either shortstop or designated hitter for today’s day game against the Royals. This is ahead of schedule and, in many ways, contrary to the comments of Yankees officials regarding Jeter’s timetable.…

    This is sorta like those reports of team planes flying to the hometowns of free agents in December and those are often full of it, but for what it’s worth, George King of the New York Post reports: Derek Jeter’s equipment from Tampa has made it to The Bronx, likely meaning the Yankees captain won’t…
