It was before the Yankees' second game of the season -- just 24 hours into their reconnaissance mission against the Rays (which, by the way, ended in a disastrous sweep). Derek Jeter took one look at the lineup card and saw he'd been busted down a rank to DH for the day. Jeter never said a word about the enforced rest, but the expression on his face required no forensic analysis. "You think Derek is happy about this?" one member of the organization asked rhetorically. He didn't wait for an answer.

Where Does Derek Jeter’s Ascent Up the Hit Chart Take Him?

The slow bat that turned him into a below league average hitter the last couple of years has disappeared. I was ready to see him get his 3,000th hit and start the countdown of when his contract...

The $100 million club in Major League Baseball is certainly one of exclusivity—only 35 players in total have surpassed that salary mark since starting pitcher Kevin Brown first crossed that threshold in 1999. However, the signing of a nine-figure contract hasn’t exactly proved to be beneficial and certainly hasn’t guaranteed future success. Just who are the top five players...

Bard to Get Start Against Yankees

This strikes me as a good call. @PeteAbeValentine just said that Bard will start on Sunday against the Yankees. #RedSoxThere had been talk of starting Lester, given the off day today, but Bard improved dramatically in his second start, whereas Lester had his first bad outing in his third start and could probably use a day off.The Yankees, by the way, are not exactly running away...
