Jeter uses 'Philip' alias for Starbucks order

I can't quite put my finger on it, but this "Philip" character looks familiar. According to the New York Post, Derek Jeter was spotted leaving a Greenwich Village Starbucks with the name "Philip" on the side.  Which means one of three things...the New York Yankees captain is still using a pseudonym when in public (he used to go by "Johnny Drama"...

Does Jeter have a secret name?

Derek Jeter 'Caught' Nabbing Coffee Belonging to 'Phillip' (not really)

In his time off it appears that New York Yankees superstar Derek Jeter likes to troll the local Starbucks for free coffee whenever someone doesn't answer the call when their name is announced. Don't laugh. That crap is expensive (and so damn good). You know I'm just kidding, right? Apparently Jeter thinks that if he goes into Starbucks and says his name...

Yankees game 45 lineup: 5/21/13

After a thrilling victory last night, the Yankees look to push their win streak to four tonight in Baltimore. Phil Hughes takes the ball with hopes of getting back on the right track.

Yankees Surviving Injuries With Solid Pitching, Savvy Low-Cost Acquisitions

The team was actually frugal this offseason as boss Hal Steinbrenner is determined to get under the $189 million tax threshold that baseball has set for 2014. By getting under that number, the Yanks would save tens of millions...
