New York Yankees: Upgrade, not replace the captain

As Derek Jeter walked off Target Field at the top of the fourth in the All-Star game, a roaring crowd of 40,000+  people continuously cheered and saluted the Captain.  Imagine being him. Imagine being one of the most respected baseball players of all time. We all know Jeter is not replaceable. He is a one of a kind athlete whose humble, yet disciplined attitude makes him the perfect...

Reds honor Derek Jeter with retirement gift

The Derek Jeter farewell tour continues, and this time it was the Reds turn to give their gift to 'The Captain'. On Saturday, the Reds honored Derek Jeter with a picture frame for his retirement prior to the game. Inside the frame were signed jerseys from both of the Reds' captains, Dave Concepcion and Barry Larkin. Also included in the frame were pictures from June 3...

Ticket Prices Skyrocket For Derek Jeter Yankee Stadium Ceremony

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter’s final season in pinstripes is nearing an end, and many fans want to see a glimpse of the 40-year-old before he hangs up his spikes. But for those who want to see the Yankee Stadium ceremony honoring the long-time captain, they’ll have to pay a pretty penny. Forbes reported that ticket prices to New York’s final regular season home game...

You Can Literally Buy Dirt That Has Been Graced By Derek Jeter

Everything surrounding Derek Jeter’s final season has been fantastic (well, aside from perhaps his play or the state of the Yankees’ season). Other teams are honoring Jeter as like he’s a foreign dignitary, Yankees fans are worshiping him as if he were an unerring god and he’s pretty much the talk of the town where ever he goes. It’s no wonder that there’s a ton of interest...

Better Commercial Jeter or Beats?

In the last two months two sports commercials have become internet sensations; the beats world cup ad feature Neymar and the Nike ad paying tribute to Derek Jeter’s final all star game. Both ads can be seen below and we leave it up to you the fans to pick your favorite. Personally, as much as I loved the beats ad when it came out, I think the Jeter ad is one of the classiest most...

Why you shouldn’t care that Jeter started the ASG

Today is another day without any baseball. Thanks, Obama! To fill the void, many backseat fans decided to bag on Jeter getting the starting nod in the All-Star Game (it need not be said that fans voted Jeter to start the ASG). The prime argument is that “the games matter!” I’m here to show you how little it matters. We can’t precisely measure how the switch of Aybar (the...

Derek Jeter, Todd Frazier Reconnect At ASG 16 Years After Meeting (Photo)

With Derek Jeter playing in his last All-Star Game Tuesday night at Target Field and Todd Frazier playing in his first, things came full circle for the pair of infielders who actually met 16 years earlier. Back in 1998, the now-Cincinnati Reds third baseman was honored alongside his Toms River, N.J., teammates at Yankee Stadium after winning the Little League World Series. The 12...

DraftKings – Derek Je-tear Jerker

Those weren’t tears of sadness, bro. I’m a straight hater of the Craptain – the realest you’ll ever know. Every time I take a dump, all that’s heard is, “number two, Derek Jeter, number two.” The love fest during the ASG was unbearable, and I was screaming for it to end, waterboarding style. That being said, ding dong the break is dead! Thank Zod! I watched an actual...

Watch Derek Jeter Tell Joe Buck to Get Lost When Wandering AL Clubhouse

FOX broadcaster Joe Buck was meandering around the AL clubhouse for an All-Star pregame piece, awkwardly pointing out Miguel Cabrera, Mike Trout and Yankees captain Derek Jeter. First, whoever thought this was a good idea at FOX should be fired. Second, now that Buck continues the weird segment, strolling toward Jeter, the future HOFer tells him to get lost. Buck’s uncomfortable...

Twitter Reactions: The Best of the 2014 ESPYS

The 2014 ESPY awards closed out the night after a completely uneventful day in the world of sports.  Let’s see, we had some WNBA games, I guess.  We had a practice round of golf before the British Open where John Daly wore these.  Some people are still talking about Lebron and Derek Jeter.  Other than [&hellip (Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) The post Twitter Reactions...

2014 MLB All-Star Game Hits Four Year High in Ratings, Viewership

As much as we pick on the MLB All-Star Game for what’s wrong, we may finally be seeing something right about the exhibition game that counts for something (we can debate that until the cows come home). For the second straight year, the All-Star Game saw its viewership increase. In 2014, Fox garnered an average of 11.34 million viewers, up from 11 million even last year. And the...

This Adam Wainwright thing is the dumbest sports controversy of the year for so many reasons

There was an All-Star Game last night.  It may be an exhibition game.  It may not be. Nobody really knows for sure.  Derek Jeter was talked about.  A lot.  Tony Gwynn was not.  The American League won homefield advantage for the World Series.  Adam Wainwright said he deliberately threw a pitch for Jeter to hit.  Because he wanted to pay tribute to Jeter.  Then he said he...
