A NICE PARTING GIFT
The New York Yankees star, after spending an evening with a woman at his apartment, reportedly not only arranges for a car service in the morning, he also gives them a basket with signed memorabilia.
This is from last week, but with the Winter Meetings it got overlooked. Anyway, Erik Boland of Newsday spoke with Yankees manager Joe Girardi last Wednesday and got some tentative plans out of the manager for rookie Jesus Montero.
Here are the bullet points:
Montero will not be guaranteed a roster spot, but the Yankees are planning for him to be a part of the everyday lineup...
From the NY Daily News:Sweet Luigi is headed back to the Yankees.
Lou Piniella, a fan favorite as both player and manager, is deep in negotiations and close to signing a deal to return to the Bombers as an analyst for the Yankees Entertainment & Sports Network. He also will likely serve as a spring training instructor.
According to industry sources, Piniella will do a limited...
Derek Jeter may have several World Series rings, but he seems to have no plans to add a wedding ring to that collection any time soon. The New York Yankees shortstop was busted by the New York Post for allegedly giving parting gifts to women who spend the night at his Trump Towers pad. "Derek has girls stay with him at his apartment in New York, and then he gets them a car to...
It was a little surprising when the Yankees didn’t pick up Andrew Brackman‘s option this offseason, but considering it was worth $2 million and he took a giant step backwards last season it wasn’t totally without merit.
Still, I wanted to see the Yankees re-sign him for maybe a lesser deal, but instead he has signed a major league contract with the Cincinnati Reds, according...
Without a doubt the best number five hitter in the league, Robinson Cano is working very hard this off-season to bat third in the Yankees lineup this season. Cano says he is going to work very hard over the next couple of months to start the season in the three spot, bumping Mark Teixeira to possibly fifth in the order like he does in the playoffs."I want to work even harder...
Derek Jeter has always maintained an image of class over his 17 seasons with the New York Yankees, but that could be up for debate now.
After breaking up with longtime girlfriend Minka Kelly in August , the 12-time All-Star shortstop has been courting a number of women in his Trump World Tower bachelor pad, the New York Post reports.
It gets better, though.
According to the Post...
The Yankees won the rights to Japanese infielder Hiroyuki Nakajima last week through the posting process with a $2 million bid, but early rumors were that he wouldn’t sign with them because either he expected they wouldn’t meet his salary demands or that they couldn’t offer enough playing time.
However, the latest is that Nakajima has been “highly motivated” to come...
Derek Jeter is a boss. Considering he is a 12-time All-Star and five-time World Series champion, that is something you already knew. We also know he has very little — if any — problems with the ladies. Jeter is still a bachelor at age 37 and seems to be doing just fine. A couple of [...]
Derek Jeter is a creature of habit — baseball players are overly superstitious by trade — but the Yankee shortstop apparently carries that behavior into his bedroom as well.
After splitting with Minka Kelly and returning to a life of single leisure in New York City, the suitors in Jeter’s life have caught on to his next-morning ruse.
Once the girl in question leaves his...
The 2011 Man of The Year award was a unanimous choice. The hands-down winner received 100% of the one vote counted and I think you'll agree that nobody is more deserving of this prestigious honor than Mr. 3000 himself, Derek Jeter...especially after reading this report from the New York Post's smokeshow reporter Tara Palmeri:“Derek has girls stay with him at his apartment...
Not so classy, captain!
Yankee star Derek Jeter, one of New York’s most eligible hunks since his split with longtime gal pal Minka Kelly, is bedding a bevy of beauties in his Trump World Tower bachelor pad — and then coldly sending them home alone with gift baskets of autographed...
The Yankees got some house cleaning done and tendered contracts to all of their unsigned players including the six that are arbitration eligible. That means Joba Chamberlain (remember him), Phil Hughes, David Robertson, Brett Garnder, Boone Logan and Russel Martin are all back in the fold. None of this was surprise because all of these [...]
Baseball season never ends for the New York Post. Derek Jeter's in the news today because he's reportedly back in the game with a vengeance. After breaking up with Minka Kelly, Jeter is "bedding a bevy of beauties" (because the Post lives in the 1960s) and diluting the collectibles market at the same time. More »
