Before becoming a star shortstop for the New York Yankees, Derek Jeter was the starting shortstop on the Central High School baseball team in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Last month, a scouting report done by Colorado Rockies before Jeter was drafted by the Bronx Bombers has surfaced on the Internet and just based on the comments in the final section, this scout believed that Mr. Jeter would be a successful pro:

You may have seen a couple of days ago the matchstick made Yankee Stadium. That took years to build and is pretty amazing, especially as to how detailed it was. Well, we have already seen something that comes pretty close to topping it. A Derek Jeter portrait that is simply amazing, as it is made entirely out of Legos. The New York Yankees shortstop has never looked as clutch as...
When Curtis Granderson caught the final out of today’s game, the Yankees set a new American League record. The team, that has been decimated by injuries and picked against since the beginning of the season, is now 18-0 when scoring first. The Yankees are the only team in the major leagues who have yet to lose whenever they push the first run across. The franchise record for most...
It’s May 18th and the Yankees are sitting atop the AL East which comes as a surprise to many for a plethora of reasons. No one thought the Yankees could continue their dominance for going on two decades, even if the Yankees were healthy. Right now, on the Yankee’s disabled list, sits names like Jeter, Rodriguez, Teixeira, Youkilis, Chamberlin and now Pettitte.
So how are the...

When an MLB team’s roster features Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, CC Sabathia, Alex Rodriguez, Andy Pettitte and Robinson Cano getting overlooked is not uncommon.
The New York Yankees roster, or current DL is littered with stars that have all rightfully earned their popularity over the years.
But if I had to name the Yankees most valuable...
Saying, "I'm proud of them," Hal Steinbrenner praised the Yankees for the success the team has enjoyed thus far this season despite the team's many injuries.

The Yankees have called up righty pitcher Dellin Betances to add another arm to the pen, according to Daniel Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal. No corresponding move has been made yet, but chances are Brett Marshall will be sent down since he threw over 100 pitches last night in mop-up duty.
Betances, 25, was once considered one of the Yankees’ top...
New York Yankees left-handed starting pitcher Andy Pettitte
exited his last start due to injury, and the club placed him on the 15-day
disabled list yesterday with a strained left trapezius muscle, according to
Kieran Darcy of ESPN New York.
General manager Brian Cashman told reporters that the team doesn’t
consider the upper shoulder/back injury to be “overly serious...
In his 19th and final season, New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is having a typically excellent year. His 16 saves are tied for the major-league lead, one of several reasons the Yankees are the surprise of the early season with a 25-15 record (as of May 16) and a two-game lead in the AL East. He has a 1.56 ERA in 18 appearances thus far. If that holds up, it would be the third...
The New York Yankees may now be out of options at catcher. With Francisco Cervelii out with a fractured hand, the team was leaning on Chris Stewart. Unfortunately, Stewart left last night's game with a strained groin. To make matters worse for the Yankees, who seemed to be healing up finally, Andy Pettitte had to leave his start with a left trapezius muscle injury.
After leaving in the fifth inning of a 3-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night in New York, borderline Hall of Fame Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte was sent to the 15-day disabled list with a strained trapezius muscle. A three-time All-Star who has captured five crowns in pinstripes, the 6-foot-5, 225 pound Pettitte (4-3, 3.83 ERA) is one of the primary reasons New York...
Hiroki Kuroda pitched dominantly in a 5-0 victory against the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night.
Kuroda would work 8 innings, surrendering no runs while walking just 1 with 5 strikeouts. With the win, the New York right-hander improves to 6-2 on the season with a 1.99 ERA in 58.2 innings of work.
Following a solid 2012 season with the Yankees (his first with the club after leaving...
When Joe Girardi took over the then Florida Marlins in 2006, little was expected of him. The team was young, inexperienced and projected to finish in dead last. Girardi guided them to a 78-84 record, en route to winning Manager of the Year for the National League. After having disagreements with management, as most people seem to have with the Marlins nowadays, Girardi was fired...
The Yankees may embrace their Evil Empire nickname, but Nick Saban is not enjoying being called “the devil himself.”
Florida offensive line coach Tim Davis whipped out that phrasing at a recent booster meeting, the second time that an SEC-affiliated coach has compared Saban to Lucifer himself.
Saban responded Thursday.
“It really is a little terribly disappointing,” he said...
New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner told David Lennon of
Newsday that the team has kept up contract talks with pending free agent
Robinson Cano’s new agent, adding that the sides are “going to continue in the
weeks to come to work through things and try to come to an agreement."
Cano recently parted ways with agent Scott Boras in favor of
a new agency headed...
Don’t get me wrong, I love Derek Jeter. I think he’s the man. He’s one of the few professional athletes left out there that does it right. Sure Jeter’s made his share of errors on the field, but perhaps his biggest error was letting Minka Kelly go. She’s not Mariah Carey, she’s not Lindsay Lohan, she seems like a good chick and of course she stunning hot. At some point...
