The Yankees' season didn't start off how we all hoped it would. Sub-par pitching and even worse defense led to a listless 6-2 loss to the Houston Astros.
If there is a silver lining to the game (aside from it being just one game out of a long baseball season) it is that Derek Jeter looked and felt like the Jeter of old.
While he admitted to feeling some nerves...
Bruce Drennan, who I have never heard of before but who hosts “All Bets Are Off” in Ohio, does not believe that Derek Jeter would sign with the Indians.

From the moment Derek Jeter announced this would be his final season in Yankees pinstripes, you knew the farewell tour would be similar to the one Mariano Rivera experienced last season. A rocking chair, commemorative guitar, sand sculpture, beach cruiser bicycles, custom fishing poles, and a mounted fire hose nozzle were among the items gifted […]

It even sounds stupid to write: The Houston Astros gave .167 hitting Derek Jeter golf clubs, cowboy boots, and a hat as part of the Derek Jeter farewell tour.Your browser does not support iframes.Funny. The guy who always reportedly 'hated' the spotlight ... has it. And it's awful. Hard to watch. (But Mark Teixeira had some good swings despite the 0-4, 3Ks so...there...
When the New York Yankees first signed Eduardo Nunez, he was considered the replacement for Derek Jeter, whenever Jeter decided to hang them up. Well, today Jeter made his first appearance of his final season . . . and Nunez was designated for assignment.
With a spot on the 40-man roster needed for Yangervis Solarte, Nunoz was the odd man out; if he clears waivers, the Yankees...
HOUSTON (AP) Derek Jeter got a pair of cowboy boots with Yankees' pinstripes, a 10 gallon cowboy hat and a set of golf clubs as the Houston Astros paid the first of what is sure to be many tributes to the New York star.

Although they do not tell the entire story of the game, they give fans insight into how the game works. Some sabermetric statistics are more confusing than others, and some make no sense at all. But there are certain ones that do help the fans understand...
The Derek Jeter farewell tour started in Houston on Tuesday, and the outcome was hilarious – the Astros beat the Yankees 6-2. If we’re going to be subjected to a year of Jeter fellation, it would be perfect if the Yankees were a fourth or fifth place team this season in the AL East.
