While Russell Martin was putting the Yankees on top in the ninth inning of Game 1 of the ALDS on Sunday night against the Orioles, Derek Jeter was tending to other matters. Jeter, who went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in the Yankees' 7-2 victory, revealed that he missed Martin's go-ahead blast for a rather bizarre reason. "I was in the bathroom," Jeter said, according to Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan. Hey, if you've got to go, you've got to go. There's only so much time you have during a game to sneak away and take care of business, and with...

When people say the O's aren't carrying a lot of experience into their American League Division Series against the Yankees, they usually mean the young players.
But on Sunday night, another part of the Orioles contingent was showing that Baltimore may have forgotten what it's like to be on the big stage -- or just the regular baseball stage, for that matter.
During last night's Baltimore Orioles-New York Yankees ALDS game, two Maryland State Troopers assigned to the Yankees dugout asked players for autographs.
The troopers entered the Yankee dugout in the ninth inning of the Yankees win and asked Nick Swisher and Derek Jeter for autographs.
A witness to the event said, "Swish was livid", referring to Nick Swisher. Derek...
There is an appropriate time and place for everything, even police officers asking professional baseball players for autographs. The ninth inning of Game 1 of the ALDS is not the time nor the place. As if asking the Yankees players for their autographs during a game wouldn’t be strange enough, some Maryland state troopers reportedly asked the Bombers for them during the most crucial...
Love him or hate him, Derek Jeter is still the most popular kid in school. MLBPlayers.com came out with their list of the top 20 selling jerseys since the 2012 All-Star break and there aren’t really any names that don’t belong. However, there are some names that surprised me. Jeter is number one followed by Josh Hamilton, Ichiro Suzuki, Bryce Harper and Mike Trout. It’s...
