The Angels Farewell Gift To Derek Jeter Was a SUP

Derek Jeter will be able to bring this monstrous stand-up paddleboard back to New York and use it most every day.  On second thought, he should probably just keep it at one of his beach houses as it may be hard to lug around mid-town Manhattan.

Yankees have bigger concerns than benching Derek Jeter

No one may have been more relieved by Derek Jeter getting two hits on Monday night than Joe Girardi. That’s not to say the Yankees manager was completely relieved afterwards.
